Clermont Foot will continue their unlikely strong start to the season when they travel to face fellow mid-table side Nantes on Saturday afternoon.

It will be the first league meeting between the two since 2012-13, when Nantes ended the Ligue 2 season as one of the promoted sides, despite losing to Clermont three games before the end of the campaign.

We say: Nantes 1-1 Clermont

These are the sort of games at the end of the season that could be looked back on as defining moments in a campaign, and Clermont will be hoping a win can aide their hopes of extending their Ligue 1 stay.

It will not be easy at all, with Nantes also on the lookout for points, and a draw will probably suit both sides.

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

A maiden back-to-back Ligue 1 championship seems unlikely for Lille, yet they will be keen to keep their European football hopes alive when they welcome Brest to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday evening.

It has not been the defence of their title Lille would have been hoping for in the early part of this season, with the reigning champions currently floating around mid-table.

We say: Lille 2-0 Brest

Improving on a title-winning season was always going to prove difficult for Lille, yet it is still a shock to see them struggling as much as they have.

Reaching the Champions League will now be their only target and, with PSG on the horizon, three points against Brest is near enough a must for an out-of-sorts Lille side.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
