Betting tips: French pokaloverraskelse lurking

the first weekend in France offers on the matches in the cup and not the League Cup but the big Coupe de France. The round opened on Friday night where Bordeaux takes against Le Mans, which is to say Ligue 1 at home against Ligue 2, but it is a bet on the away team, we're going for. In each case, with a little gardering.

Bordeaux closed the old year in the languid form with four defeats in a row and just one goal scored along the way, while the Le Mans went on holidays with victories in their last two league matches in 2019. They have already toiled through two victories in the huge cup, which, after all, indicate a certain interest in making it as good as possible.

Bordeaux have lost their last three matches in the Coupe de France, meaning therefore, that they smoke out in their first game the past two years. Both times against clubs from the divisions below Ligue 1 and last year at home.

It is of course no guarantee that it will happen again, but they have a long tradition of very close matches in Coupe de France. We must indeed all the way back to 2011 to find their last victory on more than one excess goal. They have played 23 matches in this tournament in the meantime!

Try to compare it with Le Mans history at stamford bridge in the Coupe de France. Since 2010 they have only lost two away matches. The one after extra time against Paris SG, the other with one excess goal. The vast majority of their opponents in those 14 away matches were clubs outside of Ligue 1, but the same was, by far, the majority of the Bordeaux opponents in their aforementioned 23 matches.

I take the chance on an asian handicap +1, which gives odds of 2.25 at away win or draw, while a home win in one excess goal, efforts return again. Dare to walk the plank out on the X2, is that the odds 3.05 at Unibet.

the Coupe de France on Friday 20.55

Bordeaux – Le Mans (asian handicap +1) 2 odds 2.25 bet36
