Villerupt Thil vs Annecy: Our top betting tips

Annecy to win to nil

The obvious place to kick off our betting tips for this game is by backing Annecy to win. That's not going to bank us much in the way of potential returns though. In order to spice that up, we're betting on the visitors to win to nil. Backing them to win is fairly self-explanatory when you consider the levels these two clubs operate at, which puts the focus on goals. Annecy have kept three clean sheets in their last five away games conceding just three goals in that period. Villerupt Thil meanwhile have found the net in the Coupe de France games but notably haven't played anyone close to the standard of Annecy.

Expecting a few goals

Our next prediction for this game again has a focus on goals but rather than worrying about who scores the goals, we're just focussed on how many goals hit the net. Our view is that we'll see at least three with that bet being placed in the total goals market as an over 2.5 wager. xxxxxxxxx

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Villerupt Thil odds: Odds TBC (Odds TBC) – xx%

Draw odds: Odds TBC (Odds TBC) – xx%

Annecy odds: Odds TBC (Odds TBC) – xx%

When the odds land for this game, you'll see Annecy priced up as massive favourites. A straight ‘to win' bet isn't going to be something that captures the imagination of too many punters. The flip side of that is the odds for a draw and/or Villerupt Thil win will be big and that could attract a fair bit of attention. The other area that might be worth delving into are the total goals market; bookies are predicting a fair few goals but not necessarily anticipating both sides scoring them!

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Villerupt Thil vs Annecy

Villerupt Thil

Villerupt Thil have done well to reach the last 32 of the Coupe de France but this tie against Annecy is a real step up for them. With a defeat widely predicted for the hosts, they will be looking to enjoy the occasion of welcoming a Ligue 2 club. Expect a full strength lineup and a performance full of grit and determination.

Predicted lineup – Dargenton (GK), Lepage, Weber, Quentin, Ali, Rodrigues, Georg, Isamene, Glossoa, Ubaldini, Clausse

Annecy

Annecy aren't pulling up trees in Ligue 2 and whilst they'll expect to win this game without too many scares it's unlikely they'll ring the changes. Instead, we foresee a youthful subs bench with the experienced players starting. The intention will be to get a goal or two ahead and then look to switch things up to give minutes too some fringe players.

Predicted lineup – Callens (GK), Jean, Mendy, Mouanga, Lajugie, Shamal, Domoncy, Kashi, Pajot, Balde, Dion

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

This game is likely to play out in a fashion where the hosts sit in deep and task Annecy to break them down. That's not an easy feat at any level of football when 11 men are banked in. For Annecy, that makes Moise Sahi Dion a vital figure in this game. The 21-year-old Malian forward is their leading scorer this season and arrives into this match having netted two goals in his last two matches. Will he be able to gobble up any of the chances – or half chances – that fall his way in this game?
