OSG Nice – 2.10 at Bet99

Nice have endured a resurgence during the current campaign after finishing last season well out of contention in ninth place on the Ligue 1 table. The club also turned in another disappointing performance in the Coupe de France, bowing out in the Round of 32. However, thanks to their league-leading defensive performance, the Eaglets have managed to stay mathematically in the hunt for the Ligue 1 title while climbing into second place on the table.

The club has also helped their own cause by producing the most stunning upset of the tournament by knocking off defending champions Paris Saint-Germain with a stunning victory on penalties in the Round of the 16. The question now is whether they can maintain that momentum. Nice have maintained their stingy ways while surrendering just four total goals over their past six contests across all competitions. However, they have mustered just one total goal while going 1-1-1 in their past three outings, and can ill afford an offensive letdown in their upcoming clash with Versailles, whose players are set to play the match of their lives.

AS Monaco – 2.60 at Sports Interaction

With plenty of experience on the big stage, there is no doubt that AS Monaco deserve the short odds to win the Coupe de France that they currently enjoy. Runners up in last year’s edition of this tournament, the Monegasques also closed out last season in third place on the Ligue 1 table, earning them a berth in this season’s UEFA Champions League. Things have not gone quite as planned on the big stage, with Monaco quickly getting bounced from both the UCL and Europa League. The club also currently sits below the line on the league table.

However, Monaco have been a force in this year’s Coupe de France, outscoring opponents by a wide 11-3 margin four straight wins. The club also gets set to battle Nantes in the semi-final riding a five-match win streak across all competitions, and have not fallen to defeat on home turf in 14 outings since September.

FC Nantes – 6.00

If FC Nantes are to maintain their hopes of claiming their first Coupe de France championship win since 2000, they must do something they have not done in almost five years – defeat AS Monaco when they meet in next week’s semi-final. Nantes have scored only five total goals while going winless in eight meetings with Monaco since their last victory in 2017.

However, La Maison Jaune close out February playing some of their best soccer of the season, keeping clean sheets on three occasions while winning five of their past six, capped by last week’s stunning 3-1 win over PSG in league action. Now deadlocked with Monaco at 38 points on the Ligue 1 table, Nantes offer intriguing value as a 6.00 bet.

FC Versailles 78 – 25.00

Just one win away from becoming the first Division 4 club to reach the Coupe de France final, Versailles have emerged as an incredible Cinderella story at this year’s tournament. The club has surrendered just one total goal in five Coupe de France contests since opening their tournament schedule with a 3-2 comeback victory over Olympique Lumbrois.

While Versailles face a mammoth challenge to get past Nice in their first-ever meeting with the Eaglets, naysayers count them out at their own peril. Nice have been plagued by injuries of late, most notably to defender Youcef Atal and Jean-Clair Todibo. And with a fast start, Versailles are well-positioned to emerge as kingmakers, if not history-making champions.

Best Bet: FC Nantes (6.00)
