The Coupe de la Ligue is currently being played for the 26th time and it is already clear that it will be the last edition of the competition that has been neglected and which was mostly just a playground for the reservists of the participating first division teams.
Reims vs PSG Free Betting Tips
In order to purify the game plan in the future, the French association decided in September 2019 not to hold the second most important French cup competition in the future, so that for the first time in history, an overall winner will now be determined. The last final place is to be awarded between Stade Reims and Paris Saint-Germain.
The bookmakers, who are almost across the board at Reims against PSG odds in double digits for a win by the home side, are now sure that Thomas Tuchel’s team will secure the ticket for the final.
After all, “Les Rouge et bleu” won five of the last six events in this competition and are therefore record winners in the Coupe de la Ligue with eight trophies won. Maybe because the second garrison of the Parisiens could still compete for the championship.
Nevertheless, at Reims against PSG it cannot be excluded for the forecast that the supposed underdog from Champagne won both encounters with the Parisiens in 2019 – each with two goals difference. So actually a perfect starting point for a highly lucrative outsider bet.
However, because the Tuchel team’s momentum is particularly high these days and everyone involved should go into this game all the more wake up due to the aforementioned defeats, we still recommend playing PSG Tip 2 at Reims. For a better odds we use the half-time final bet.
Reims – Statistics & current form
While teams like Paris Saint-Germain are used to English weeks, relatively high clubs like Stade Reims clearly show the high frequency of games in the results.
With the weekly games in the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France, January is always a very intense month for the first division clubs, something that “Les rouges et blancs” are feeling right now.
Although they lost 2-1 away to Monaco in the Coupe de France on 4 January and thus had no play at the weekend for the first time, none of the last five competitive games was won. At least in the regular season. The move to the semi-final of the Coupe de la Ligue against Strasbourg was made perfect after a goalless 120 minutes only on penalties.
This is exactly what makes the tip for the house-high outsider’s final entry against Reims against PSG a bit unplayable despite the sheer astronomical odds. After all, there is no real momentum in Champagne.
David Guion’s team is now only eighth in the current Ligue 1 table after three games without a win and was overtaken by Nantes, Lille, Montpellier and Lyon on these three match days. With Monaco, Angers and Nice, three other pursuers are waiting for the next slip.
It is imperative to avoid this at home against Metz next Saturday if against table 17. three points are absolutely mandatory. “Les rouges et blancs” should therefore focus all the more on this match and not on the Coupe de la Ligue, which they won in 1991.
So it would certainly be a nice bonus to be the last Coupe de la Ligue overall winner of all time in the history books. The trophy is already in the club home of the six-time French champion, whose focus may therefore be different with a clear conscience.
Except for the long-term injured Arber Zeneli (cruciate ligament rupture), coach David Guion is potentially available to all other 25 players in his 26-member squad. However, we do not consider it impossible that some top performers could get a break given the unusually full schedule regarding the important home game against Metz.
After all, Stade Reims does not have the best home record. In Ligue 1, only three of the ten home games won so far.

PSG – Statistics & current form
Paris Saint-Germain has won the Coupe de la Ligue five times in the past six years – and always when “Les Rouge et Bleu” has reached the final. Only last season was already in the quarterfinals when PSG lost at home to Guingamp 1: 2.
One of many results that Thomas Tuchel would have been doomed in the first year of office. In the end, only the eighth French championship was booked under the German coach. As a reminder: predecessor Unai Emery always won both cup competitions on the Seine in both years.
The German coach of the Parisiens is therefore facing a groundbreaking six months to summer, in which additional titles in addition to the again almost certain next French championship must come. In addition to the ambitions in the Champions League, this also includes the Coupe de la Ligue.
At Reims against PSG, the bookmakers’ odds swing so strongly towards the top favorite, because even the second garrison of the star ensemble would have enough potential to keep up in the national championship and premier class.
In addition, Thomas Tuchel does not have to deal with the immense bad luck of injuries of the previous season this season, so that a regular rotation is currently possible. Although Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Thomas Meunier and Juan Bernat alone injured or struck four players in defense alone, the squad has also increased in width to compensate for this.
The Parisians obviously learned from the previous season and, despite 29 players in the senior team, also a good mood in the squad. So it is reported more and more these days that the superstar Neymar, who is actually willing to change, even extends his contract on the Seine.
The latest results also speak for the good mood. 15 competitive games in a row, PSG remained undefeated across all competitions and won 13 of these games in two draws. Only the away game in the premier class at Real Madrid and the recent league home game against Monaco ended in a draw.
However, “Les Rouge et Bleu” returned the favor on the Monegasques by immediately winning the game 4-1 away three days later.
Now it is time to pay the outstanding bills with Stade Reims, against whom there were two competitive losses in 2019. In our eyes, a shapely Paris with anger in the belly should bring everything with it, to have already made everything clear at the break for the tenth entry into the final of the Coupe de la Ligue.
Best goal scorers in the league:
🏆 Kylian Mbappé (13 goals)
🏆 Neymar (11 goals)
Probable lineup of PSG:
➦ Rico – Kurzawa – Kimpembe – Kehrer – Dagba – Verratti – Gueye – Neymar – Di María – Mbappé – Icardi
