A win for any of the two will mean a semi-final meeting with Stade Rennais

Paris Saint-Germain will welcome OGC Nice to battle in the Coupe de France. This is the quarter-final stage and the last one to be played out. PSG are dominating the domestic league race. In Ligue 1 they have 56 points to keep them top of the table after 25 matches. That’s 10 more than second-placed Stade Brestois.

OGC Nice are just a mark off European qualification spots. In 25 league fixtures, they have managed 40 points, which is 2 less than fifth-placed RC Lens. In the cup, a 4-1 win over Montpellier Hérault gave them the ticket to quarters. A win further will book them a semi-final clash with Stade Rennais.

Kylian Mbappé (⁠PSG)

Jérémie Boga (Nice)

The Ivory Coast international has managed to score 4 goals and provide 2 assists. It took Jérémie Boga 19 Ligue 1 games this ongoing season to achieve that. Boga had scored the solo goal for his side in the 2-1 defeat to Montpellier last game.

Match Prediction for ⁠PSG vs Nice

OGC Nice may have made it to the quarter-finals with a commanding 4-1 win, but their recent form isn’t in their favour. In the last five games, they have failed to find even one victory. PSG on the other hand are on cruise mode in the league and would want to target this cup title as well. A win for the hosts is the likely outcome.

Prediction: ⁠PSG 2-0 Nice
