The French Ligue 1 enters her 10th game with Paris Saint Germain and Olympique Marseille still at loggerheads with each other as only 2 points separate both teams. Match Day 10 comes with a different kind of expectancy as teams look to further keep their season’s objectives in check.
- OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS VS TOULOUSE FC
Lyon have had a rather abysmal run of form in the French Ligue 1 thus far despite having a brilliant start to the league that saw them win 4 of their opening 5 games, they head into this match on the back of 4 straight league losses in what has been a worrisome time for them. Toulouse enter this match currently placed 14th on the log as they look to further compound the woes of their hosts in this game. They however have to get history on their side as they are yet to win a competitive match against Toulouse in a run that stretches back to 2015 (12 games).
PREDICTION – OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS 2 v 1 TOULOUSE FC
- OLYMPIQUE MARSEILLE VS AC AJACCIO
Olympique Marseille enter this game with all levels of confidence on them with the team still yet to lose a single Ligue 1 game this season and with their UCL hopes finally on track with Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Sporting CP, they head into this game versus 20th and bottom placed AC Ajaccio filled with vigour as their opponents gave found life back in the Top Flight quite tasking.
PREDICTION – OLYMPIQUE MARSEILLE 3 v 0 AC AJACCIO
- STADE DE REIMS VS PARIS SAINT GERMAIN FC
Paris Saint Germain start to the 2022/2023 season has been beyond question as to their intentions of successfully defending their crown, they are on the back of 5 consecutive league victories and would look to make it 6 when they visit the ‘Stade Auguste Delaune’ to take up the Stade Reims challenge. The home side have managed just 1 win all season in the league and would be looking to make the consecutive wins of Paris Saint Germain come to an end.
PREDICTION – STADE REIMS 1 v 3 PARIS SAINT GERMAIN
- HSC MONTPELLIER VS AS MONACO FC
Stade De La Mosson comes alive in this Ligue 1 tie that has always produced much goals over the last few meetings with these two teams. AS Monaco have found their foot in the league after a shaky start and have since picked up 4 consecutive wins in the league and head into this game in fine form. Montpellier on the other hand have failed to find a steady path to the league’s engagements with the team losing 3 of their last 5 games to leave them in the 10th position.
PREDICTION – MONTPELLIER 1 v 2 AS MONACO
- OGC NICE VS TROYES FC
Nice haven’t had the kind of start they would have hoped for with the team heading into this encounter gaining just 8 points thus far with their League and European engagements in total shambles. They play a Troyes side who have had a bit of form on their side with the team losing once in her last 5 league games and would look to improve on that record as they seek to distance themselves from the relegation zone which most people had condemned them to before the start of the season. The ‘Allianz Riviera Stadium’ should be the perfect place for OGC Nice to kick start their season with the team needing a win by all cost from the home game.
PREDICTION – OGC NICE 2 v 1 TROYES
- STADE BRESTOIS 29 VS FC LORIENT
Lorient have been the team to watch in this league thus far with the team in total control of proceedings thus far boasting of a 3rd place berth on the table and having racked up 5 Ligue 1 wins on the stretch to put them in a very good position. Brest on the other hand find themselves in the relegation battle already and know a win here at the ‘Stade Francis-Le Ble’ could be a perfect way to rejuvenate their deteriorating season.
PREDICTION – BREST 0 v 1 LORIENT
- ANGERS FC VS RC STRASBOURG
Angers head into this home game looking to make it 3 wins out of 4 in the Ligue 1 as the team strives to put touching distance between themselves and the relegation zone. They face a Strasbourg team who have struggled to find their fit in the league and who are winless in any of their last 6 league games. The Raymond Kopa Stadium comes alive in this clash that pits Les Bleu et Blanc (The Blue-and-Whites) and Les Scoïstes Les Noirs et Blancs (The Black and Whites) in what promises to be an exciting clash in Angers, France.
PREDICTION – ANGERS 1 v 1 STRASBOURG
- CLERMONT FOOT 64 VS AJ AUXERRE
Clermont Foot’s match day 9 emphatic 3-1 win over AC Ajaccio was enough to push the team into the 9th position as they ensured they have picked up 7 points from a possible 12 in their last 4 games and would be hoping to take that form into this game when they face an Auxerre team who are winless in their last 5 League games (D1, L4) and would be hoping for a win to boost them away from their current 14th place position in the league.
PREDICTION – CLERMONT FOOT 1 v 0 AJ AUXERRE
- STADE RENNAIS FC VS FC NANTES
Rennes are currently unbeaten in 8 games in all competitions with the side picking up 5 wins and 3 draws during this period to ensure they are top of their Europa League table and currently placed 6th on the Ligue 1 log in what promises to be a good season for them. Nantes have been totally bad in all competitions with the team losing 4 of their last 5 games to subject themselves to a current 16th place spot on the League as they find a win that could most likely refine their season.
PREDICTION – RENNES 3 v 1 NANTES
- LOSC LILLE METROPOLE VS RC LENS
The curtain closer of the Ligue 1 match day 10 sees in form Lens travel to the ‘Stade Pierre Mauroy’ to take on a Lille side who have struggled for consistent results in the League with the team losing 3 of their last 6 games (W3, D0) and would be looking for a more consistent run of form as they aim to return to Europe. Lens are unbeaten in each of their last 3 meetings with Lille and would be hoping they are fourth time lucky when they travel for this tie as they hope to still remain one of the last three teams to avoid defeat this season after Paris Saint Germain and Olympique Marseille.
PREDICTION – LILLE 1 v 1 LENS
It promises to be yet another thrilling encounter for all teams with the league entering the mid season stage.
