Orleans vs PSG Prediction & Match Preview

Orleans vs PSG Prediction & Match Preview

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 when they take on third-tier outfit Orleans in the last 32 round of the Coupe de France on Saturday evening.

PSG in Commanding Form

PSG are eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after a 2-0 win at Lens last weekend.

They took advantage of Nice’s defeat at Rennes to increase the gap at the top of the standings to eight points.

Les Parisiens have won their last four matches in all competitions.

Orleans Struggling in National 1

Orleans occupy the 12th position in the National 1 standings, sitting just one point above the relegation zone.

They have two wins and losses each in their previous four league rounds.

Orleans play attacking-minded football but can be defensively vulnerable.

Orleans vs PSG Prediction:

PSG are heavy favorites to win this match, and for good reason. They are the best team in France by a considerable margin, and they are in strong form right now. Orleans are a decent team at their level, but they are simply outmatched by PSG.

We expect PSG to dominate the game from start to finish and win by a comfortable margin. The best value bet is to back PSG to win the first half in -1.5 Asian Handicap at the 2.62 odds. We also like the Over 3.5 goals FT pick at the 1.83 odds, as we can hardly see Orleans preventing PSG from scoring four or five goals in this one.

Recent Meetings:

This will only be the third head-to-head meeting between Orleans and PSG. Les Parisiens came on top on both previous occasions.

The first encounter happened in December 2018 when PSG claimed a 2-1 road win in the last 16 round of Coupe de la Ligue.
The second meeting was a pre-season friendly in July 2021 when PSG won 1-0.
