There is action in the French Ligue 1 today, and here is where to place your bets!
Metz vs Strasbourg
Metz haven’t lost against Strasbourg since back in 2007, picking up seven wins and five draws during that period. The hosts head into Sunday’s match as the clear form favorites with four wins from their last six matches. Strasbourg have lost three of their last six matches and have only secured one win during that period. We’re not expecting a lot of goals between these two sides as four of Metz’s and four of Strasbourg’s last six fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals.
TIP: Metz win at FT
Rennes vs St Etienne
Neither of these two sides can claim to be in good form right now, with Rennes winning one, drawing three, and losing two of their last six matches, and Saint-Etienne losing three, drawing one and winning two of their last six outings. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Rennes’ last four matches and in five of Saint-Etienne’s last six games, which points towards Sunday’s game being low-scoring as well.
Lille vs Brest
Lille are the form favorites with wins in each of their last six matches, the last five of which have all been accompanied by clean sheets. Brest have lost three of their last five outings in Ligue 1, conceding two or more goals in three of those games. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of Lille’s last five outings, adding further weight to a low-scoring 90-minutes this weekend.
TIP: Lille win at FT
Bordeaux vs Marseille
We’re predicting that over 2.5 goals will be scored on Sunday and given the form both teams have been in of late, we’re backing a final scoreline of 2-2. Clean sheets have been at a premium for both clubs of late and neither can claim to be in the best of form right now. With both sides so evenly matched in Ligue 1 this season, a draw seems like the most obvious result.
Tip: Over 2.5 match goals
