FC Sochaux v AS Monaco. The biggest surprise in Ligue 1 this season has undoubtedly been Nice topping the standings, but following close must be the remarkable goal scoring form of AS Monaco. The club from the principality have been rampant in front of goal, scoring 56 times. That is more than any club from England, Italy, Spain or Germany and Leonardo Jardim’s men are just two points off the summit; so second tier FC Sochaux should not provide too much of an obstacle for their route to the semi-finals.
The Ligue 2 team are currently fifth, so have done well to reach the last eight. Albert Cartier is building a competitive squad, and their 15thplace finish last season now seems a distant memory. The hosts have, of course, been involved in the tournament since August – the first round – beating Gazélec Ajaccio, Brest, Dijon and Marseille on their way to their meeting with AS.
The two sides have not played league fixtures since December. The winter break was preceded by victory for both teams; Sochaux have not been beaten since November, while Monaco have not tasted defeat since October. Interestingly, FCSM have the second division’s best defensive record, with 14 conceded. With Radamel Falcao in fabulous form, however, having scored 16 goals in all competitions, it would be a massive shock to see them keep a clean sheet; in fact, just keeping the score respectable would be understandable at this stage of the competition.
Sochaux’s odds are 6.50 for a famous victory, or 4.15 for a draw which would take the match into extra-time. AS are available at 1.50, so it would be a huge surprise if they weren’t to advance. They can also be backed with a 2-0 handicap with odds of 4.40.
The only other real big side left in the competition is Paris Saint-Germain. The league and cup holders are 1.65 to win the Coupe de la Ligue once more. In 2015/16 they beat Lille 2-1 to win the trophy for the sixth time. Though, Monaco (2.80) still have reasonable odds at Tipbet, and they beat the Parisians 3-1 when they last met in August.
