Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
Saint Priest will be aiming to claim a major scalp in the Coupe de France when they take on Valenciennes at Stade Pierre Rajon. Lionel Bah’s troops are eyeing their sixth consecutive win in all competitions, but they face an uphill task against Valenciennes. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Morgan Pottier, who scored a brace in a 4-1 win over Romorantin.
Les Atheniens, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Concarneau. Valenciennes did well to beat Paris FC in the last 32, but given Saint Priest’s splendid form, we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out. When the two teams met in the National League back in 1999 Saint Priest defeated Valenciennes 2-1, but the share of spoils is on the cards this time out, at least after 90 minutes.
