PSG to seal final spot

Our coupe runneth over last night, as Lyon's 2-1 Coupe de la Ligue victory over Lille gave us an odds-against winner. We'll focus on the other semi-final tonight, as Reims take on PSG.

There's an argument to say Reims were the PSG of the 1950s. They twice reached the final of the European Cup, only to lose on both occasions. Between 1949 and 1962, they were crowned as champions of France six times.

While Reims are no longer regulars in the winners' circle, they are currently overachieving. Coach David Guion has done a terrific job winning the Ligue 2 title, and leading the club to a top-eight finish in Ligue 1 last season. Reims have also won their last two games against PSG, one victory on home soil and another at the Parc des Princes.

That recent history might put you off backing the French champions tonight, especially as they have had some big mishaps in cup competitions under coach Thomas Tuchel. However, PSG are on stunning form at the moment. They have won 13 of their last 15 matches in all competitions, and haven't lost since a defeat at Dijon since the first week of November.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were both rested for the weekend's 1-0 Coupe de France victory at Lorient, and both will be raring to go. Tuchel is expected to field his strongest available side, despite a tricky trip to Lille coming up on Sunday.

PSG have won their last six away games in all competitions, and five of those wins were by two goals or more. Reims haven't won a game inside 90 minutes since mid-December, and I think their cup adventure will come to an end here.
