The knockout round of the Coupe de la Ligue de France has the duel that will be played in the mythical stadium of the park of the princes between the Paris SG and Lille as one of the most outstanding qualifying. Both teams debut in the competition once in Ligue 1 they are not meeting the expectations, since they are something far from its initial objectives, to dominate France a year more in the case of the Parisians and to arrive at the European positions in the one of the Lille.
For its part, the local team, Paris SG, is experiencing its most complicated season in recent years, as it is encountering difficulties and tough opponents (such as AS Monaco) and unexpected (Nice). For the moment the team that coaches the triple champion of the Europa League with Sevilla FC, Unay Emery has played twenty-four official games of the season, obtaining a balance of fifteen victories, six draws and has suffered three defeats. So far he has scored forty-nine goals and has scored twenty-one. In the current series sum up three consecutive games without winning, after losing in his visit to Montpellier and draw against Ludogorets (in Champions) and Nice. Émery’s team has not yet lost at home, having achieved eight victories in thirteen matches, but has already drawn five times, the goal balance is twenty-nine goals in favor and seven against. Valuing the statistics, we see how he has managed to leave his door to zero in eight of the thirteen games he has played, once he has scored twelve times.
During the week is talking about that the team can change trainer, once Riberto Mancini sounds like possible substitute of Unay Émery, that is not setting a good start of season.
Once Probable: Kevin Trapp, Thomas Meunier, Presnel Kimpembe, David Luiz, Layvin Kurzawa, Thiago Motta, Javier Pastore, Marco Verrati, Lucas Moura, Ángel Di María and Edinson Cavani.
For their part, the visiting team, Lille, is occupying the eleventh position of Ligue 1, once it was eliminated in the play off of the Europa League last summer. Although it is in the middle of the table, the current situation is key, as the next parties are going to decant their future in the league, as it is seven points away from the Europa League posts, but five down. At the moment the team that coaches France Frédéric Antonetti has played nineteen official matches in the season, obtaining a balance of six victories, three draws and has suffered ten defeats. So far he has scored eighteen goals and has scored twenty-four. However, in the current series sum four consecutive games without losing, winning even their last three games played. Away from home, Lille have only won once in the whole season just in the last game that has played as a visitor, against Girondins. In nine games he adds a victory, two draws and six defeats, with five goals in favor and eleven against.
Valuing the statistics, we see that home has scored only five goals, remaining unmarked in five of the nine games played and scored in only four.
Once Probable: Mike Maignan, Sébastien Corchia, Franck Beria, Renato Civelli, Adama Soumaoro, Ibrahim Amadou, Rony Lopes, Mounir Obbadi. Naïm Sliti. Yassine Benzia and Nicolas de Préville.
When making a forecast we should give favorites to the locals, which faces an opponent who as a visitor has many difficulties. Taking into account the information offered in the previous one may be a good idea to bet that there will be a victory of PSG and will not score the two teams.
