French Cup Preview

PSG will be back in action on Friday evening, as they look to regain the French Cup. The Parisians last won this competition in the 2020-21 season, as they landed their 14th honour. However, they will certainly have questions to answer this weekend, as they were beaten for the first time domestically in their previous fixture. PSG was beaten 3-1 away from home against Lens on New Year’s Day, which saw their unbeaten record in France come to an end. Their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings remains a healthy one, but a second straight defeat could lead to questions surrounding the manager. But, the Parisians have been dominant throughout recent history at this stage of the competition. This will be a big moment in the history of Chateauroux, as they welcome PSG to town for the French Cup tie. They currently sit 14th in National, after winning just four of their 16 games this term. Their form over their previous five games has been sketchy to say the least, as they haven’t won over that period. However, they came through the previous round in excellent fashion, as they beat Lege-Cap-Ferret 4-1 away from home. Florian Bianchini, Ferris N’Goma, and Celal Bozkurt were among the scorers in that win. Their best-ever showing in the competition came in 2003-04, as they were beaten in the final by PSG.

Chateauroux vs PSG Head to Head

The only previous competitive meeting between the sides came in the 2004 French Cup final. On that occasion, PSG claimed victory following Pedro Pauleta’s strike with just 25 minutes remaining.

Chateauroux vs PSG Prediction

This should be a testing fixture on the road for PSG, but it remains extremely difficult to see past the reigning French champions. PSG look to be the best bet to win this game, and they could claim a 3-0 win on the road. Make sure to bet on Chateauroux vs PSG with 22Bet!"

After bouncing back to winning ways in the 3-0 win away at Union Berlin, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to maintain pressure on league leaders Bayern Munich when they face Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Sunday at 17:30GMT. 

Match Preview

Can Dortmund Find the Elusive Consistency to Challenge Bayern for the Title?

After the 5-2 defeat to Leverkusen halted their three-match winning run, Dortmund bounced back with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Union Berlin last Friday. They will be looking to keep this form going in the clash with Mönchengladbach.

After league leaders Bayern faltered in recent weeks, with two defeats in the last six rounds of fixtures, there is life in the Bundesliga race this season.

This dynamic is placing considerable significance on Dortmund’s results, and a win will be the only acceptable result in the clash with Mönchengladbach on Sunday to maintain pressure on the Bavarians at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Will Mönchengladbach Extend Their Unbeaten Run to Three Matches in the Bundesliga?

Mönchengladbach’s form has been a stop-start in recent weeks. Over the last six rounds of Bundesliga outings, Mönchengladbach have collected just 8 points from the available 18.

In this run, they have won just two matches, while drawing two and losing two. 

Away from home, Mönchengladbach have only won once in the last six outings, with the rest of the results comprising three draws and two draws. In this run, Mönchengladbach collected just six points and dropped 12. 

Form Guide

Borussia Dortmund

Marco Rose’s side have kept their form with the best of Bundesliga in the last six rounds of fixtures. In this run, they have collected 12 points out of the available 18.

Dortmund have won four and lost two during the period, which means that this return is only bettered by Leverkusen’s 13-point haul in the last six Bundesliga outings. 

The two defeats in the last six outings mean that the gap to the league leaders Bayern Munich stands at six points. Rose’s men will need to be more ruthless and consistent to stand a chance of overhauling Bayern for the title. 


Mönchengladbach are unbeaten in the last two matches; they have won one and drawn one. However, analysis of their last six outings shows a stop-start record in their Bundesliga campaign.

In this run, they have won two, drawn two, and lost two, collecting 8 points and dropping 10. Away from home, Mönchengladbach have won just one match over the last six outings; the rest of the results comprise three draws and two losses. 

Team News

Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund will be without left-back Marcel Schmelzer (knee surgery), right-back Mateu Morey Bauza (injury to the cruciate ligament) and defensive midfielder Abdoulaye Kamara (ankle injury).

Star striker Erling Haaland has also been having muscular problems since January 23rd, which means he is a major doubt for the Mönchengladbach match.

Right-back Thomas Meunier (knock) and attacking midfielder Giovanni Reyna (illness) are also doubts for the match.


Ahead of the clash with Borussia Dortmund, attacking midfielder Lars Stindle and centre-back Mamadou Doucoure, will be missing from the squad on Sunday. 

The 33-year-old Stindle is nursing a medial collateral ligament injury. The 23-year-old Doucoure is facing muscular problems keeping him from fitness. 

Possible Starting Lineups

Borussia Dortmund

Kobel; R. Guerreiro, D. Zagadou, M. Hummels, M. Akanji; J. Bellingham, A. Witsel, M. Dahoud; M. Reus, D. Malen, J. Brandt


Sommer, M. Ginter, M. Friedrich, N. Elvedi; S. Lainer, K. Kone, F. Neuhaus, R. Bensebaini; J. Hofman, A. Plea; B. Embolo

Players to Watch

M. Reus

The German forward has been crucial in filling the hole left behind by Erling Haaland when he is not fit to play. 

Reus’ goals and attacking play are central in driving Dortmund’s energy and verve going forward. 

B. Embolo

The striker will be crucial for Mönchengladbach against Dortmund because he will offer an outlet and physical presence upfront. 

Embolo’s pace and mobility are essential in creating dangerous situations. He will be instrumental for Mönchengladbach on Sunday against Dortmund. 


Expect Dortmund to dictate the tempo of the game through possession play and pressing across the pitch. Mönchengladbach will look to be disciplined and pragmatic, and pose a danger in transition.

Borussia Dortmund will keep up the pressure on Bayern by winning the match and taking all three points.
