Sunday's Ligue 1 predictions including Monaco vs. Montpellier

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


Strasbourg vs. Lyon (Sunday, 12.00pm)

Strasbourg and Lyon will both endeavour to win just their second game of the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season when the two sides lock horns at the Stade de la Meinau on Sunday lunchtime.

The hosts fell to a 3-0 defeat to Lille before the international break, whereas Lyon's Olympique derby with Marseille ended in a 1-1 stalemate in gameweek six.

We say: Strasbourg 0-2 Lyon


Lyon's recent form has been extremely underwhelming and Garcia will be forced to name a heavily-changed lineup owing to injuries, suspensions and coronavirus. Strasbourg will probably feel that they will not get a better opportunity to take points off Lyon for a while, but with the quality that Les Gones have in their ranks, we expect Lyon to end their winless run against an out-of-sorts Strasbourg side on Sunday.

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

Nantes vs. Brest (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Nantes will be looking to end a four-game winless streak in Ligue 1 when they welcome Brest to the Stade de la Beaujoire for Sunday's showdown.

In contrast, the visitors are searching for their second win on the bounce following a hard-fought 1-0 triumph over Monaco before the international break.

We say: Nantes 1-2 Brest


With 10 goals to their name already this season, only the top five teams have scored more goals than Brest at this early stage, and Dall'Oglio's attackers ought to feel confident of picking up where they left off against a struggling Nantes side. The hosts will put up a fight but Brest should do enough to get the job done.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Monaco vs. Montpellier (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Fifth meets sixth in Sunday's Ligue 1 encounter as Monaco welcome Montpellier HSC to the Stade Louis II for gameweek seven.

Both sides went in to the international break following defeats in gameweek six, with Monaco losing to Brest 1-0 while Montpellier fell to defeat to Nimes by the same scoreline.

We say: Monaco 2-1 Montpellier HSC


Had Montpellier been forced to field a makeshift lineup for Sunday's clash, the game would have been a foregone conclusion before the first whistle blew. The visitors will not have Der Zakarian barking instructions from the touchline on Sunday, and Montpellier are sure to be affected in some capacity by all of the midweek commotion, so we are still tipping Monaco to nick a win here.

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

Angers vs. Metz (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Metz will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run in the French top flight to four games when they travel to Angers for Sunday's Ligue 1 clash.

The hosts, meanwhile, are looking to return to winning ways following their humbling 6-1 defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain before the international break.

We say: Angers 2-1 Metz


Metz can feel positive about welcoming Antonetti back to the club, but on the other hand, the absence of Niane is sure to affect Les Grenats going forward. The 21-year-old bagged all three of Metz's goals in their recent win over Lorient and the visitors have a number of other absentees to contend with for the trip to Angers, so we expect Moulin's men to come out on top in this one.

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

St Etienne vs. Nice (Sunday, 4.00pm)

Nice travel to Saint-Etienne on Sunday with both sides level on 10 points after six games in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 table.

Despite both sides currently sitting in a top-half position, neither side have been in good form at all of late, with Nice's 2-1 win against Nantes prior to the international break the only win between the two sides in the last three matchdays.

We say: Saint-Etienne 1-1 Nice


Given the recent losses and amount of absentees St-Etienne must overcome, we cannot see a repeat of last season's 4-1 drubbing of Nice for Puel's side on Sunday.

In fact, with both sides struggling to create many chances in recent matches, it would not particularly surprise us if a bore draw ensues with both sides prioritising avoiding defeat above going all out for the win.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Lille vs. Lens (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Second hosts third in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign as Lille take on Lens on Sunday in the Derby du Nord of France.

The two fierce Northern rivals have not met since Lille defeated Lens 3-1 in May 2015, by which time Sang et Or had already been condemned to relegation into the second-tier, where they had remained until gaining promotion last season.

We say: Lille 2-1 Lens


Derby du Nord tends to be a feisty affair and with such a long gap between the last meeting between two sides both flying high in the table, we do not expect it to be any different on Sunday.

Lille do have home advantage and more quality throughout their side, though, so while the absence of Fonte in defence is a concern given the form of Kakuta and Ganago, we think they may just about get the job done.

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