Our football match prediction:
Stade Saint-Michel will host Tuesday’s football game between Canet Roussillon and Caen. The National 3 side are seen as big underdogs in the tie against the Ligue 1 team, but they should not be written off just yet. Canet Roussillon have been producing fine performances in the league this season and that is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Caen. Patrice Garande’s men, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the French top flight this season and, as a result, they sit in the middle of the Ligue 1 standings at the moment. Caen proved their worth in their French Cup opener against Hazerbrouck (2-0) and we predict that they are going to record yet another win in the Coupe de France on Tuesday evening. A man to watch in the away team will be Ivan Santini, who has netted seven goals in the French elite division so far this term.

In 2016 Stef Peeters joined Sint-Truiden and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 39 appearances for the Belgian club. The midfielder then (2017) moved to France to sign a four-year deal with Caen and he is going to wear No. 8 on his shirt in the 2017/2018 season. The Belgian player was born on February 9, 1992 in Meeuwen-Gruitrode, but he has yet to earn a cap for the Belgium national football team. Peeters’ main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. The left-footed footballer has a contract with Caen which expires on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Caen):
Caen are a French football club that compete in Ligue 1. Caen were founded in 1913 under the name of The Stade Malherbe Caennais and back then Stade de Venoix was the club’s home ground. Nowadays SMC play their home games at Stade Michel d’Ornano and the capacity of the venue is 20.453. Caen finished the 1991/1992 Ligue 1 campaign in fifth position in the standings, 14 points behind champions Marseille and that is considered the club’s best result in the French top flight. In 2005 Caen made it to the Coupe de la Ligue final, but Strasbourg proved to be a big catch for Patrick Remy’s troops. The Stade Michel d’Ornano outfit play their home games in red shirts with blue stripes (vertical), while gray and black are their away colours. Nicolas Seube is the club’s most capped player and it has to be noted that he made no less than 477 appearances for SMC during his spell with the club.
