Ligue 1 Weekly Predictions
At the end of Round 16, the French contenders have achieved some incredible feats as they proceed to the weekend. After a rough hustle through the midweek clashes, PSG stand tall as they defeated Nantes 2-0 and reign from the top. Meanwhile St Etienne are talking business as they constantly climb the table by winning their last game 4-1 against Nice. As for Bordeaux and Brest, they went ruthless in their clashes as they flattened the pitch by scoring back to back goals in their respective games. With Round 17 continuing the drama this weekend, the French atmosphere is all set for the excitement called football.
Lille VS Brest
Back to back victories has lifted Lille to the 4th position in the table and they have had an outstanding run of 12 straight unbeaten Ligue 1 games at home. On Matchday 17, they will host their next game against Brest at the Pierre-Mauroy Stadium. With a solid backing, Lille have recorded 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games at home. As for Brest, they come into this game winning just one away fixture so far despite possessing one of the best offensive strategies in the campaign. Similar to their previous meetings, this clash favors the hosts and their tight defense on Friday.
Nimes VS Lyon
Staying winless in the last 9 games has put Nimes in the risk of being relegated as they crumble down to the 19th position. To worsen their nightmare even more, they will be taking on Lyon in their next fixture on Matchday 17. In their last 2 meetings in the previous season, Nimes lost both games and they would be fearing the same result this time. Although playing this fixture at home might add on to their confidence, but the visitors remain favorites and they are about to repeat their usual game.
Montpellier VS PSG
After recording a 7 match undefeated streak at home, Montpellier come into this game on Matchday 17 against PSG. Although the hosts have had their stronghold at home, this clash against the French Champions will be a great challenge to them. Since they managed to win just once in their last 5 meetings, their preparation for this clash would be intense. But the visitors are one of the best teams in the league who have lost just once in their last 8 league fixtures. Therefore this could be a tight clash with the hosts dominating right from the start, but the odds seem to favor the visitors.
Strasbourg VS Toulouse
With their loss 1-2 against Monaco in their last game, Toulouse registered their 6th consecutive defeat of the campaign and rest at the bottom of the table. They will be traveling to Strasbourg to take on the hosts of their next clash on Matchday 17. Although Strasbourg play at an advantage here, their loss 5-0 against Brest in their last game has left the side’s capacity to win this clash questionable. As the division’s worst away team so far, Toulouse hit the road to break their bad luck but the hosts remain favorites.
Rennes VS Angers
With the hope to complete a 4 match win streak at home, Rennes host their next fixture against Angers at the Roazhan Park on Matchday 17. Surprisingly, Angers have never won in a single game against Rennes in all their previous meetings. Although both teams have recorder similar stats in the league and neighbor in the table, back to back losses has done some serious damage to the visiting side. Undoubtedly a tight clash of the week, with the hosts still remaining favorites to win this clash once again.
Monaco VS Amiens
After registering a win streak over the last 4 home games, Monaco wish to continue their form as they take on Amiens on Matchday 17. And their wish seems quite possible, since Amiens have remained winless in their last 3 games and have been out of luck in almost all their outings. In accordance to their past meetings, Monaco are predicted to dominate in this clash too on Sunday. Therefore this fixture to be held at Monaco is a hands down prediction favoring the hosts.
OGC Nice VS Metz
Metz’s poor form continues in the league with their loss against Rennes 0-1 in their last game, leaving them winless in the past 6 clashes. Although they will be traveling once again, to face off against OGC Nice at the Allianz Riviera on Matchday 17. Possessing one of the best weaponry in the league, Nice have had issues with their defense, accounting to just a single clean sheet so far. But the visitors will have to do more on the pitch, in order to draw this clash or the hosts might grab 3 full points.
Stade Reims VS St Etienne
Bagging draws in their last 3 home fixtures, Reims will host their next clash against St Etienne on Matchday 17. As a matter of fact, the visitors have dominated Reims in almost all their previous Ligue 1 meetings. But this time, they will be facing a revamped Reims’ side who have posed a rock-solid defense in all their clashes, despite their below par attacking. Although St Etienne have registered a promising comeback in the league, this clash will favor the hosts on Sunday.
Nantes VS Dijon FCO
After their loss 2-0 against PSG in their last game, Nantes move on to host their next clash against Dijon on Matchday 17. Although Dijon have been winless in their last 4 outings, they need to win this clash in order to make it further up the table. With a leaky defense, they have managed so far in the league and have evaded the relegation zone. But they will need a good defense, if they plan to win or at least settle for a draw in this clash whereas Nantes have brighter chances.
Marseille VS Bordeaux
Marseille have picked up their pace and have won 5 consecutive games as they trail PSG for the top spot in the Ligue 1 table. On Matchday 17, they will be hosting their next clash against Bordeaux at the Velodrome Stadium in Marseille. One of the best clashes of the week and a close on too, since both teams are competing out of the top spots in the table. Since both teams have a good backup in their defense, the contest will focus on their attack and the visitors have a slight advantage here. But the hosts won’t be letting it slide away from them so easily on Monday.
