Paris remains the clear reference in French football. At national level, Thomas Tuchel’s team has escaped the competition in recent years. There is currently no club that can keep up with PSG. Nevertheless, Paris must not show any embarrassment, especially in the cup competitions in which you can be eliminated in a game with a defeat.
PSG vs St. Etienne Free Betting Tips
However, this has hardly been the case in recent years, as Paris Saint-Germain has won eight out of ten possible titles in Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue in the last five seasons. It is therefore not the case that PSG takes the cup games lightly. That will also hardly be the case in the League Cup against Saint-Etienne on Wednesday.
Thomas Tuchel will demand a concentrated performance from his team on Wednesday. After all, the quarter-finals are already on the program. The way to another trophy is not far away. At home, the Parisians are the clear favorites against ASSE. St. Etienne has so far won only once in seven cup games against PSG.
It will be difficult for St. Etienne, especially in the capital, because it has been more than seven years since ASSE won in the Prinzenpark. Therefore, the starting position on Wednesday is clear. The bookmakers between PSG and St. Etienne give a clear prediction of a home win.
Most recently, ASSE was successful three times in a row in the cup competitions. However, none of the opponents came close to the quality that Paris Saint-Germain had. Therefore, between PSG and St. Etienne everything points to a tip in favor of the home side.
PSG – Statistics & Current Form
Paris Saint-Germain once again sets the pace in the Ligue 1 table. Although PSG has been clearly ahead at this point in the season in recent years, Parisians currently have a solid lead of seven points over Olympique Marseille. PSG also has one game less.
The starting position in Ligue 1 is comfortable and the Champions League will only continue against Borussia Dortmund in mid-February. As a result, Paris can now fully engage in the games in the cup competitions. This is another point that speaks for a home win for the champion on Wednesday.
In addition, Paris Saint-Germain is once again in impressive shape. From the last eleven games, PSG has taken ten wins and one draw in the premier class at Real Madrid. In addition, Paris has scored at least four goals in the last five games. Sounds like the odds in the match between PSG and St. Etienne should be checked on over 3.5 goals of the home side.
On Sunday, Thomas Tuchel could afford to send his second guard onto the lawn. In the Coupe de France, the duty at the amateur club Linas-Montlhery was on the program. Paris won 6-0 without any major problems. Adil Aouchiche, twice Edinson Cavani and Pablo Sarabia as well as Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting were the goalscorers.
It probably won’t be that easy on Wednesday against the league rivals. However, Thomas Tuchel will now send his supposed regular line-up onto the lawn again.
“Usually we should be able to use all players who didn’t play on Sunday.” – Thomas Tuchel
After winning the Coupe de France, the German coach already indicated that he intended a larger rotation.
As it looks, all players are available. Julian Draxler, who had recently struggled with a viral disease, was already back on the pitch against Linas-Montlhery, but will probably only be on the bench against ASSE. The only thing that should be clear, however, is that Sergio Rico should again be given preference over Keylor Navas in goal.
Estimated lineup of PSG:
↪ Sergio Rico – Bernat, Diallo, Thiago Silva, Meunier – Verratti, Marquinhos – Neymar, di Maria, Mbappe – Icardi
↪ Trainer: Tuchel
Last games from PSG:
⚽️ 01/05/2020 – Linas-Montlhery vs. PSG 0: 6 (Coupe de France)
⚽️ 12/21/2019 – PSG vs. Amiens 4: 1 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 18.12.2019 – Le Mans vs. PSG 1: 4 (Coupe de la Ligue)
⚽️ 15.12.2019 – AS St. Étienne vs. PSG 0: 4 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 12/11/2019 – PSG vs. Galatasaray 5-0 (Champions League)
St. Etienne – Statistics & Current Form
Like Paris Saint-Germain, Saint-Etienne is still represented in both cup competitions. But Ligue 1 is not doing very well for that. However, even as fourth in the table, up to fourth place, just six points are missing. A return to international football will still be difficult to achieve this season. In addition, ASSE said goodbye without a victory in the Europa League group stage.
After all, when it comes to relegation with an eight point lead there is currently no great need. The shape in the Christmas season and around the turn of the year is expandable. In six games ASSE suffered four losses and victories St. Etienne could only celebrate in the league with the relegation candidate Nimes and in the cup with the lower class club Bastia-Borgo.
It is therefore not difficult to maintain the prediction of a home win in the duel between PSG and St. Etienne. The third division side in Corsica ASSE was not exactly covered with glory on Sunday. After all, it was enough for a clear 3-0 win in the end. That is all that matters in the cup and therefore Saint-Etienne stays in the Coupe de France.
Arnaud Nordin was responsible for the 1-0. Wesley Fofana and Arnaud Nordin both increased to 2: 0 and 3: 0 in stoppage times of both halves.
“We have to reduce our workforce. More than 30 professionals are too much for a club like St. Etienne. ” – Claude Puel
Saint-Etienne will build on these two players in the future, but there is currently unrest due to the fact that a strike list is apparently circulating and some players are to be handed over in winter.
This could be a motivation for one person, but it would make another person fall into a hole. Claude Puel will have to see how he moderates the situation as best as possible. There are no major worries when it comes to injuries. On Wednesday, ASSE will only have to do without Kevin Monnet-Paquet.
Probable lineup of St. Etienne:
↪ Ruffier – Fofana, Debuchy, M’Vila – Trauco, Camara, Youssouf, Palencia – Benkhedim, Boudebouz – Nordin
↪ Trainer: Puel
Last games from St. Etienne:
⚽️ 01/05/2020 – Bastia-Borgo vs. AS St. Étienne 0-3 (Coupe de France)
⚽️ 12/21/2019 – Racing Strasbourg vs. AS St. Étienne 2-1 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 18.12.2019 – Olympique Nîmes vs. AS St. Étienne 1: 2 (Coupe de la Ligue)
⚽️ 15.12.2019 – AS St. Étienne vs. PSG 0: 4 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 12.12.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. AS St. Étienne 1-0 (Europa League)

PSG vs St. Etienne Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters
Paris Saint-Germain is in great shape. In the past eleven games, Thomas Tuchel’s team has celebrated ten wins. Only in the Champions League at Real Madrid did you have to be satisfied with a draw. In addition, Paris has been extremely hungry for goals in the last few games and has always scored at least four goals in the last five matches.
That could mean that in the match between PSG and St. Etienne, a tip on many goals from the home side is justified. Betting on the victory of the guests should make little sense. After all, ASSE has not won against Paris in 19 games. The current constitution gives little hope that this series will be broken on Wednesday.
