Ligue 1 stats and tips
Angers v St Etienne, 18:00
Bad form can be tough to shift, but that's what's required of St Etienne boss Pascal Dupraz on Wednesday. His side face Angers having been beaten in each of their last 7 Ligue 1 games.
Marseille v Angers, 20:00
Marseille have played out some low-scoring matches in Ligue 1 recently. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Jorge Sampaoli's side's last 5 outings and, with Gerald Baticle and his Angers ahead on Friday night, their attackers may well need to put in some additional graft in training this week
Monaco v Lyon, 20:00
Lyon have been involved in some low-scoring matches in Ligue 1 in recent weeks. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Peter Bosz's side's last 5 outings and, with Philippe Clement and his Monaco ahead on Saturday night, their strikers may well need to put in some additional work on the training ground
Lorient v Lens, 12:00
It has been a dismal set of results for Lorient and their supporters, with their last Ligue 1 win now coming 15 matches ago. Boss Christophe Pelissier has to find a solution, and sooner rather than later. Will Lens at Stade du Moustoir on Sunday come too soon, or be a turning point?
Strasbourg v Nantes, 14:00
0-0s have been a highly uncommon occurrence in Strasbourg's Ligue 1 outings recently. Their last 34 have had over 0.5 goals, and Sunday afternoon's clash with Antoine Kombouare's Nantes really should deliver more of the same.
Troyes v Metz, 14:00
Bore-draws have been a highly uncommon occurrence in Troyes's league outings recently. Their last 41 have had over 0.5 goals, and Sunday afternoon's clash with Frederic Antonetti's Metz really should be a similar story.
Nice v Clermont, 14:00
Few will have missed the impressive form of Nice in recent weeks. They've won 5 consecutive Ligue 1 outings, and Christophe Galtier will be desperate to keep that run going as they come up against Clermont Foot at Allianz Riviera on Sunday afternoon.
Reims v Bordeaux, 14:00
Bore-draws have been an incredibly rare occurrence in Bordeaux's Ligue 1 outings recently. Their last 35 have had over 0.5 goals, and Sunday afternoon's meeting with Oscar Garcia's Reims really should deliver more of the same.
Rennes v Brest, 16:00
Nil-nils have been an almost unheard of occurrence in Rennes's Ligue 1 outings recently. Their last 37 have had over 0.5 goals, and Sunday afternoon's meeting with Michel Der Zakarian's Stade Brestois 29 really should be a similar story.
Lille v PSG, 19:45
Mauricio Pochettino and his Paris Saint-Germain side have developed a convenient knack of getting something from just about every Ligue 1 fixture they play. They're unbeaten in 13 in Ligue 1 now, so Jocelyn Gourvennec and his Lille side will have to be at their best if they're going to get anything at Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday.
