Nice vs. Lyon (Sunday, 12.00pm)
The hosts suffered a disappointing loss in the last game, whilst their visitors come into the match on the back of two wins in the space of a week.
We say: Nice 2-1 Lyon
This should be a tight game and the result could come down to how Nice respond to their recent defeat. Both sides have goals in them but we are backing a more-rested home side to edge the game and secure a narrow victory.
Lens vs. Metz (Sunday, 2.00pm)
The hosts are flying high in second place, whilst their upcoming opponents currently find themselves down in the relegation playoff spot with just six points.
We say: Lens 2-0 Metz
They may have lost last time out but Lens are the better side, with home advantage and a fitter squad. This should be a comfortable home victory.
Lorient vs. Bordeaux (Sunday, 2.00pm)
The visitors have struggled so far this season, winning just one game, and they find themselves sitting two points above the relegation zone.
We say: Lorient 2-2 Bordeaux
Lorient are further up the league table and therefore head into this game as the favourites; however, this will not be a simple fixture as Bordeaux have been picking up consistent results as of late.
Because of that, this game could result in a draw between the teams as each club looks to get another point on the board in a fixture that is bound to produce goals.
Reims vs. Troyes (Sunday, 2.00pm)
Both find themselves just above the relegation zone at the moment and are in a real need to get points on the board to push away from that.
We say: Reims 1-1 Troyes
Both teams have been inconsistent so far this season, meaning it is hard to predict exactly which version of each squad is going to turn up on the day.
However, this is an important fixture for each of them, and that could provide some intensity and caution, which might result in a draw taking place.
Rennes vs. Strasbourg (Sunday, 2.00pm)
The hosts are now on an impressive winning streak, whilst their upcoming opponents have had a more mixed time of late but did produce an impressive win in their most recent outing.
We say: Rennes 1-1 Strasbourg
This should be a tight affair between two sides in good form. Both managers favour an attacking style of football but neither are too sloppy in defence and they may cancel each other out to some extent, so we are backing an entertaining 1-1 draw on this occasion.
Monaco vs. Montpellier (Sunday, 4.00pm)
The hosts have produced a disappointing start to the season and sit 10th in the table, whilst their visitors are 13th after a surprise victory last time out.
We say: Monaco 1-1 Montpellier HSC
Despite rotating on Thursday, Kovac's absences mean Monaco will come into this match far less rested than their opponents, who will also be high on confidence after their win over Lens. The hosts have struggled to keep clean sheets this campaign, but Montpellier have not been great on the road and are without a win on their travels so far this season. All things considered, we are backing a draw.
Marseille vs. PSG (Sunday, 7.45pm)
The Orange Velodrome plays host to Le Classique on Sunday evening, as Jorge Sampaoli's free-scoring Marseille lock horns with league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Les Olympiens eased to a 4-1 win over Lorient during their most recent domestic battle, while PSG had to rely on late drama to march to victory against Angers.
We say: Marseille 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain
Marseille have hardly demonstrated a clinical edge in Europe this term, but Sampaoli's side are never guilty of a lack of ruthlessness in Ligue 1, especially in front of their impassioned fanbase.
However, the hosts have had two days fewer to recover for Le Classique, and PSG's record against Les Olympiens certainly speaks for itself, so we expect Pochettino's side to pull through and shade a close contest in the pick of the fixtures this weekend.
