Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including Monaco vs. Marseille

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures - Lens vs. Nice and Monaco vs. Marseille.

Having just beaten Marseille in Wednesday's rearranged fixture, Lens will be aiming to march to back-to-back victories in Ligue 1 when they welcome Nice to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors, meanwhile, are on a downward slope but have had a week to recover from last weekend's crushing defeat to Bordeaux.

We say: Lens 2-1 Nice


Lens' inconsistency has prevented them from breaking into the European places so far, but this game represents a prime opportunity for Haise's men to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since September. The visitors may have to do without a key player in Thuram, and even though their away form is relatively strong, we are backing Lens to take the spoils.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Monaco vs. Marseille (Saturday, 8.00pm)

High-flying Monaco will be out to win their fourth Ligue 1 game on the bounce when they welcome Marseille to the Stade Louis II for a fascinating encounter on Saturday night.

In contrast, the visitors are in a rut and will be desperate to avoid a fourth straight defeat across all competitions this weekend.

We say: Monaco 3-1 Marseille


Volland and Ben Yedder are simply unstoppable for Monaco at the moment, and a reshuffled Marseille defence will be in for a taxing night at the Stade Louis II. The hosts' defence is not impenetrable, though, and the visitors should manage to get on the scoresheet, but Kovac's men simply boast too much attacking quality and are expected to march to a convincing win over their fellow European hopefuls.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.
