Matchday 8 Predictions
After suffering a shocking defeat 0-2 at home, PSG look for Mbappe’s return to regain what they had when they stunned Real Madrid for 3-0 in their first match of UEFA Champions League. Just as the other French sides make steady progress in the league, the stories are continued and they all lead to Round 8 of this Ligue 1 weekend. With exhilarating matchups and breathtaking moments in the game, we step into yet another spectacular Round featuring some of the best clashes in this year’s Ligue 1 schedule.
Lyon VS Nantes
After winning their opening 2 Ligue 1 fixtures, Lyon are now winless in their last 5, with no goals scored in 2 of their losses. But during this clash, scoring the opener could be vital to Lyon’s chances of victory as the hosts are unbeaten in 16 of the last 17 home games in the league. Nantes will be travelling to Lyon with lots of positivity from their mid-week game where the defeated Rennes for 1-0 in a home game. Lacking shot accuracy, Nantes can take confidence from the fact that they have scored the opening goal in 5 of their last 6 road trips. But the host’s Moussa Dembélé leads the Ligue 1 scoring charts with 6 goals so far and will be crucial for thr home side’s victory.
Bordeaux VS PSG
PSG’s road campaign has been good so far, after 2 Ligue 1 away wins which were accompanied by a clean sheet. However, a shock 0-2 reverse to Reims in midweek may be worth noting that PSG’s last 7 league defeats have seen them concede in both halves. With Kylian Mbappe’s entry, the visitors might deliver a good blow at Bordeaux. Still unbeaten in Ligue 1 home matches this term, Bordeaux have wasted no time in making an impact here, netting 3 of their last 4 home league goals inside the opening 10 minutes. But that will not be enough to overpower the Parisians comeback at the Matmut Atlantique.
Stade Reims VS Dijon FCO
After their shocking 2-0 victory away to PSG in the midweek, Reims registered their 5th clean sheet in this Ligue 1 campaign. With just 2 goals conceded so far, they also boast the joint-best defense in the league but the fact that having failed to score in 3 of their last 5 home fixtures will be of particular concern to them. Here, they will be facing a winless Dijon side, who have hit the rock-bottom of the table with 5 losses. It will be a victory to cherish for the hosts, after they make the visitors submit just before the final whistle.
Metz VS Toulouse
With just 2 wins in the league so far, Metz and Toulouse will face off against each other in Matchday 8 at the Stade Municipal Saint-Symphorien. After losing 4 straight matches, Metz finally won their second game 0-1 against St-Etienne in the midweek matchup. But things have not been great for the visitors as they have recorded a winless run in their last 3 matches, they might have a chance of managing a draw in their next fixture. Or it will be the hosts’ day to bounce back into the league with 3 valuable points.
Monaco VS Brest
The hosts sealed their first league win of the season at the 7th time of asking in midweek, and now go in search of back-to-back league victories for the first time since February. The 8-time Ligue 1 champions had been winless in 7 home league fixtures prior to defeating Nice, yet they still have only 3 home league wins from their last 19 here. Monaco’s new recruit – Wissam Ben Yedder has netted 4 goals since joining Monaco, all coming in home games, and 3 before half-time. And the hosts will find the nets once again and will lead the game right from the start.
Angers VS Amiens SC
On a great run of 4 straight home wins in Ligue 1, Angers are equally matched with the table toppers with 15 points. As such, they have good reason to believe that they can win their opening 5 home fixtures in a top-flight campaign, for the first time in the club’s history. However, Amiens’ 2-1 away victory to Metz in their last away outing saw them put an end to the thirst which arose from a winless run of 12 straight away games. Anyways, they won’t be finding any pleasure playing a team like Angers, especially at their home and could possibly look forward for a draw at the most.
OGC Nice VS LOSC
Looking for their 5th win in the season, both sides mean business as they take on each other on Round 8 at the Allianz Riviera. An early opener would be exactly what the teams will try to execute and make sure that they dominate both halves of this match. Though Nice suffered a 3-1 crushing defeat at Monaco, they have made some remarkable performances in the league so far. It could be a thrilling match for both the teams and their fans, as a draw can be the least expected outcome of this fixture.
Strasbourg VS Montpellier
The visitors in this fixture have had the most balanced start to the season, by winning their last match 1-0 against Nimes in yet another low-scoring affair. They will be travelling to Strasbourg for their next clash knowing that they are still winless on road in this campaign. With the hosts winning their last match 2-1 against Nantes they will be setting hopes to get on with their business. Although it will be a good contest with Strasbourg’s midfielder Dimitri Liénard going against the visitor’s strong walls, the hosts are likely to win it.
Nimes VS St-Etienne
Without a win in 7 matches in all competitions, AS Saint-Étienne’s only victory this season came in Matchday 1 against Dijon. As for the Crocodiles, they have won the last 2 fixtures at home and will pose a much greater threat to the visitors compared to the opponents of their previous games. But the Greens can still win this game if they can do what they did earlier this year in a home game 2-1 against Nimes. And the hosts will put all their efforts into this game as they try to rise again from their previous defeat and put another nail in the coffin before they bury the visitors.
Marseille VS Rennes
On Monday, Marseille will host Rennes at Stade Velodrome for their Round 8 clash in the league. The hosts have recently settled for draws in their last 2 games, in spite of winning 3 consecutive clashes in their campaign. After losing their first fixture, the hosts have made steady progress leading them to be the expected winners of this clash. The visiting side is quite the opposite, who got off to a flying start with 3 wins, defeating PSG in their streak they haven’t had much of a season after that. Hence this match could either be a reality check for them unless they pull out something, as they did earlier in the season.
