Four bets to place in the French Ligue 1 today

Four bets to place in the French Ligue 1 today

There is action in the French Ligue 1 today, and here is where to place your bets!

Bordeaux vs PSG

PSG may not have been at their consistent best in Ligue 1 this season, but they have won four matches on the spin away from home, scoring 11 goals in the process.

Eight of those strikes have come in back-to-back away games against Barcelona in the Champions League and Dijon in Ligue 1.

Indeed, PSG have netted three or more goals in five of their 13 away matches in Ligue 1 this season – a sequence that has contributed to them being the leading scorers in the division once again.

TIP: Over 2.5 match goals

St Etienne vs Lens

St Etienne have proven hard to beat on home soil of late, losing just one of their last eight Ligue 1 matches at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, but they have also only won once during that time, drawing the other six.

Indeed, only Nantes have drawn more Ligue 1 games on their own patch this season than Claude Puel’s side.

Le Verts have also lost just one of their last six matches in Ligue 1, home or away, but the amount of those games that have ended all-square mean they are still looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone.

TIP: A draw at FT

Lyon vs Rennes

Lyon have lost ground in the Ligue 1 title race over recent weeks, winning just one of their last three games, including a 2-1 loss to Montpellier in their most recent home fixture.

Home defeats are an all too familiar story for Rudi Garcia’s side when they face Rennes, as they have lost each of their last four meetings with Wednesday’s visitors at the Groupama Stadium.

Indeed, there appears to be something of a home hoodoo when these two sides meet, as the home team has not won any of the last eight meetings and only one of the previous 12.

We will go for goals in this one.

TIP: Over 2.5 match goals

Lille vs Marseille

Ligue 1 pacesetters Lille have lost just one of their 14 top-flight home matches this season, but their form at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy has been patchy of late.

A home clash with an improving Marseille on Wednesday may not be ideal for the league leaders, as OM are unbeaten in five games across all competitions.

However, three of those matches have ended all-square and Marseille have now actually drawn four of their last six in the league, including against Lyon last time out in what was new manager Jorge Sampaoli’s first game in charge.

With both sides being involved in their fair share of draws of late, we are predicting more of the same on Wednesday, particularly as they also drew in September’s reverse meeting at the Stade Velodrome.

TIP: A draw at FT
