betting odds, tip & prediction for AS Monaco – Paris St. Germain ➔ Coupe de France, Wednesday, 19.05.2021 at 21:15
Could football in France be any more exciting at the moment? Next weekend we will see an electrifying final for the title between Lille and Paris. One team even still has the chance to do the double.
The Coupe de France final is coming up on Wednesday (20:45). It’s the perfect final, with the country’s two best attacking teams battling it out for victory. Read all about the chances of victory in my Monaco PSG betting tip.
AS Monaco narrowly missed out on the championship, but now a second chance at the title awaits them in the cup. After a magnificent season overall, it would be a shame if Niko Kovac’s team had to end the season without celebrating.
Second, third or fourth, the final standings in Ligue 1 will be decided next weekend. The Monegasques are now back in the Coupe de France final for the first time since 2010.
Eleven years ago, the final was narrowly lost 1-0 after extra time to Paris. PSG? Exactly the same opponent awaits Monaco in 2021. It is exactly 30 years since AS last stood at the top.
Of course, one would have wished for an easier opponent in the final, but the self-confidence should still be high. Also because Monaco won both games against the starting team in the league. 2:0 and 3:2 – is the third win coming now?
Grenoble (1:0), Nice (2:0), Metz (5:4 n.E.), Lyon (2:0) and Rumilly( 5:1) – that was Monaco’s way to the final. This year, the Monegasques have lost just two games. What does it matter that their most recent three wins against Rennes, Reims and Angers were very close?
Anyone who has gone without a goal only four times in the entire season and scored five times against PSG can of course have hopes of winning the cup. With Wissam Ben Yedder, anything is probably possible. The Frenchman just keeps scoring and scoring and scoring.
Ten goals in the last ten league games, three in the last two cup games – he is Monaco’s guarantee of victory. Although the Monegasques have already beaten Paris twice, the bookies don’t believe in them. At Bet365, the odds even reach 4.50.
All or nothing – within a few days Paris St. Germain will decide whether the 2020/21 season will turn into a disaster or end on a positive note. In the championship, the final is all about hoping for a slip-up from Lille.
PSG are one point behind the leaders. Before that decision, however, there is the cup final. So if it goes well, the double is the end result. If it goes wrong, there’s no title at all. The fact that the Parisians are in the final at all is down to sheer nerves.
Actually, everything went well in the Coupe de France. 1:0 against Caen, 3:0 against Brest, 3:0 against Lille and 5:0 against Angers – four games, no goals conceded. Then came the semi-final against Montpellier, in which Neymar and Co. were of course clear favourites.
In the end it was 2-2 after extra time, the penalty shoot-out had to decide. In the end, the underdogs had to admit defeat. The dress rehearsal for the cup final went well with a 4:0 win against Reims.
Once again, it became clear how much PSG depends on Kylian Mbappe. In the cup, he scored twice in the last three games, in the league he has also been jubilant for four games. He was also involved twice in the 3-2 defeat to Monaco in the first leg.
Mbappe and Ben Yedder, these two could decide the final between them. By the way, if you bet on a PSG triumph, you won’t get the highest betting odds. More than 1.40 is not possible.
There are two absolute top teams fighting for the cup on Wednesday. According to the football bookmakers, PSG will triumph in the end. The odds are surprisingly low for the fact that AS could win twice in Ligue 1.
