PSG take on Auxerre in the Coupe De France looking to complete the domestic treble for the first time. PSG have such an array of superstars that it shouldnt be surprising to see them in this position. The huge investment by their foreign owners has left PSG with a strangehold over Ligue 1 and french football in general. With Laurent Blanc's side winning the the Coupe De la Ligue in April and winning hte league two weeks ago they now have a chance to make history and win the first ever treble in PSG's esteemed history. With Ibrahimoivch still a doubt as he is carrying a calf injury this one could come down to Cavani, Lavezzi and Lucas Moura.
Auxerre finished mid table in Ligue 2 and now must travel to Parc des Princes to take on PSG. It's ironic that Auxerre are drawn as the home team but will be playing in PSG's home ground. Auxerre have had a great cup run though and making the final is an impressive performance by the Ligue 2 side. For those who are unfamiliar with Auxerre their key men will be the link men up front Diarra will play as the center forward and Gragnic will play the creative role behind him. Gragnic is the top scorer in theis team with eight goals and if Auxerre are to get any sort of result tomorrow it will be based around the top two finishing their chances and Auxerre's solid defence holding out PSG.
This one to me looks too lob sided to be a good game. I'm going to take PSG -2 as I think the capital city side put in a perfromance here and make history. With Lavezzi likely to leave in the summer he may sign off with a big performance here as the Argentine is a player for the big occasion. Either way though I think this one is too much of a mis match to be a tight game.
