Sunday's Ligue 1 predictions including Lyon vs. Monaco

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Sunday's Ligue 1 action, including Lyon vs. Monaco.

Brest vs. Strasbourg (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Brest host Strasbourg in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign on Sunday, with the visitors languishing in the relegation zone after only taking three points from their opening seven matches.

The hosts, meanwhile, should be the more confident of the two sides having won two of their three matches at Stade Francis-Le Ble this season, helping them to sit in a respectable 13th position.

We say: Brest 2-1 Strasbourg

With two of the leakiest defences in the league on display, we can see goals in this match, with Brest's strong home form and increased confidence perhaps giving them the edge between two sides who will arguably be satisfied with avoiding relegation this season.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Bordeaux vs. Nimes (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Bordeaux and Nimes will both be looking to recover from dampening defeats when the two Ligue 1 sides lock horns at the Matmut Atlantique on Sunday afternoon.

Les Girondins suffered their heaviest defeat of the season so far against Marseille last time out, whereas Nimes were no match for champions Paris Saint-Germain in gameweek seven.

We say: Bordeaux 2-0 Nimes

Bordeaux have not been renowned for high-scoring affairs this season but ought to feel confident of returning to winning ways against a Nimes side forced into a defensive reshuffle. The visitors are certainly not expected to ship as many goals as they did at the Matmut Atlantique last season, but Bordeaux should pick up all three points with minimal trouble either way.

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

Metz vs. St Etienne (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Metz host Saint-Etienne in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season with the incentive of a win taking them above their opponents and potentially into the top half of the table.

The hosts will fancy their chances having remained unbeaten in their last four matches, especially with St Etienne heading into this match having lost three consecutive games.

We say: Metz 1-1 Saint-Etienne

With Metz missing the striker who has scored six of their seven league games this season and St Etienne on a mounting losing streak, we can see both sides being content with a draw here, especially with Metz drawing two of their last three matches 1-1.

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

Montpellier vs. Reims (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Montpellier HSC will be looking to avoid a fourth-straight game without a win in Ligue 1 when they welcome a lowly Reims to the Stade de la Mosson on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts recorded a 1-1 draw with Monaco in gameweek seven, whereas Reims' dismal spell of form continued with a 3-1 loss to fellow strugglers Lorient last weekend.

We say: Montpellier HSC 2-0 Reims

Reims have a plethora of absentees to contend with for their trip to a Montpellier side who are determined to put an end to their winless run. The visitors must get their season up and running as quickly as possible, but we cannot see that happening here and are backing Montpellier to march to a comfortable victory.

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

Nice vs. Lille (Sunday, 4.00pm)

Nice will be hoping to bounce back from a 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League when they host Lille in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Lille were also in action on the continent on Thursday night, faring much better as they beat Sparta Prague 4-1.

We say: Nice 1-2 Lille

The result of this game could depend on how quickly Nice can put Thursday night behind them. They shouldn't be beaten heavily again but may still struggle against a Lille side in fantastic form at both ends of the pitch.

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

Lyon vs. Monaco (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Two giants of the French game will collide on Sunday evening as Lyon welcome Monaco to the Groupama Stadium for gameweek eight of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign.

The hosts managed to return to winning ways with a narrow 3-2 victory against Strasbourg last time out, whereas Monaco were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with Montpellier.

We say: Lyon 3-2 Monaco

Lyon supporters will be hoping that their side's narrow victory over Strasbourg is the one that turns the corner heading into the winter months, but Monaco have mistakes of their own to rectify this weekend. This mouthwatering showdown could easily go either way depending on which attacking contingent is stronger on the day, but with the hosts able to welcome back a couple more first-team regulars, we are backing Les Gones to come out on top.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
