Our prediction for this Coupe de la Ligue match:
A place in the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-finals will be at stake when Nimes and Saint-Etienne face each other at Stade des Costieres. Nimes have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season, and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone in the Ligue 1 standings. Les Crocodiles are eager to give fans some cheer, but they are seen as underdogs in Wednesday’s clash against Saint-Etienne.
Les Verts aim to bounce back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the French top flight, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Saint-Etienne have slim chances of winning the domestic title, meaning that they will give 100% to go all the way in the Coupe de la Ligue this term. When the two teams met at Stade des Costieres in September les Verts defeated les Crocodiles 1-0.
