Match: Marin Cilic – Lucas Pouille Picks, Odds, Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Friday, 16 September, 2016
Marin Cilic will play against Lucas Pouille in the second match from the semifinal between France – Croatia in World Group of Davis Cup.
After Boric Coric and Richard Gasquet, this will be the second game from the battle between France and Croatia in Davis Cup. If we give priority to Gasquet in the first game, here Cilic is favorite to win and he may need to catch up after so the victory before him is required.
Cilic showed great game in Cincinnati at the end of August, having won the title, beating in the final match Andy Murray. But then he disappointed the US Open and was eliminated in the third round. On the other hand, Lucas Pouille beat Rafael Nadal and Roberto Bautista Agut in New York but was eliminated in quarter-finals by his compatriot Gael Monfils.
Pouille showed amazing progress this season and managed to enter the top 20 and now is number 18 in the world. Cilic, however, is not entitled to a mistake in this game and to own audience must win the game.
