Nice vs Versailles France Cup Semifinals Predictions
Tuesday, 1st March 2022 is the day when Nice lock horns with Versailles in the France Cup semifinals. This will be the first encounter between these teams. Our tipsters at Football Whispers have settled the following two predictions for this game.
Nice to win first-half @ 63/100 (1.63)
Nice will play this France Cup Semifinals on home ground and that should hand them some confidence in this important game. With the visitors should equally have thousands fans cheering them in this trip, Nice has done pretty well on home soil this season. The visitors have played defensively but facing an ambitious Ligue 1 side in Nice should trouble the National 2 team (Versailles) in this Cup fixture.
Under 1.5 first-half @ 13/25 (1.52)
Versailles can only hope to force this game into extra time given their strong defensive record. However, it will be difficult to match the offensive power of Nice in the France Cup semifinals. And while we are tipping a confident win for the home team, they will have to contend with a team that comes to defend. Versailles has not lost a match in 2022 and boasts a 21-match unbeaten streak. An early goal for Nice in the first-half is very likely but we don’t expect more than one goal in the first half.

Nice vs Versailles France Cup Semifinals Preview

These teams meet for the first time in a fixture that will be watched by thousands of soccer fans in France and beyond. The winner in this game will face either Monaco or Nantes in the finals.
And so, the question is which side has what it takes to sail through to 2022 France Cup finals? First off, Francois Letexier will be the referee in charge. It will be his eighth time overseeing a Coupe de France game. The 32-year-old France referee averages 3.4 yellow cards in the competition. He has previously issued two red cards in the competition. But what stands out most in that in seven France Cup fixtures that Letexier has referred, he has issued a total of 5 penalties.
Moreover, while most punters expect Nice to easily win this game, it could take extra work to edge out a National 2 team that hasn’t lost in 21 games on the bounce. We see only a few goals getting scored in this France Cup semifinal.
