Our tipster is backing Thomas Tuchel's men to continue their domestic dominance with victory in this Coupe de France semi-final clash on Wednesday

Paris Saint-Germain face Nantes in the Coupe de France semi-final on Wednesday night. Thomas Tuchel's team saw their hopes of Champions League glory extinguished by Manchester United last month.

On the domestic front, though, the Parisians remain as the dominant force of French football. PSG are seeking a fifth successive triumph in this competition.

Nantes are aiming to stop them, but the assignment facing Vahid Halilhodzic's side is a tough one. PSG have won each of the last 17 matches between the teams. Indeed, almost 15 years have passed since Nantes last got the better of the Parisians.

Latest odds

Given that remarkable record, it is unsurprising that PSG are SportPesa's 2/25 (1.08) favourites to win this one.

Nantes are huge outsiders at 23/1 (24.0) to claim a famous victory in Paris. SportPesa go 8/1 (9.0) that this tie remains deadlocked at the end of normal time with extra time and penalties to be played if required.

Team news

Edinson Cavani and Neymar are still sidelined for the hosts. Kylian Mbappe, who has scored 12 goals in as many matches for club and country, will lead the line. Angel Di Maria, with six goals in his last five games against French opposition, is expected to partner Mbappe in attack.

Rene Krhin will be assessed for the visitors. Andrei Girotto was suspended at the weekend, but is available for this one.

Strong head-to-head trends

PSG have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last nine victories against Nantes. SportPesa offer 10/19 (1.53) that Tuchel's team win to nil on this occasion.

The same firm go 1/2 (1.50) that the visitors draw a blank when they face the French champions at the Parc des Princes.

Low scoring recent meetings

Somewhat surprisingly, there have been fewer than three goals scored in four of the last five fixtures between these teams. SportPesa offer 2/1 (3.0) that the trend continues in this clash.

Tips and Predictions

PSG, though, have scored 30 goals in their last eight home matches against domestic opposition and this cup clash could well result in yet another comfortable win for Tuchel's men.

The 5/6 (1.83) quote from SportPesa for PSG (-2) to beat the handicap mark, then, could represent real value for punters.
