Sunday's Ligue 1 predictions including Lille vs. Lorient

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Sunday's Ligue 1 fixtures, including Lille vs. Lorient.


Nantes vs. Metz (Sunday, 12.00pm)

Nantes entertain Metz in Ligue 1 on Sunday with the visitors having a slim chance of moving into a Champions League qualification position with a victory.

The hosts, meanwhile, are looking to put more distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

We say: Nantes 1-2 Metz


Given how impressively Metz have coped with the injury to Niane, we think they may have enough to edge past a Nantes side who have not exactly sparkled this season.

A win could take Metz as high as third in the table.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Dijon vs. Lens (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Dijon entertain Lens in Ligue 1 on Sunday with the hosts requiring a win to move off the bottom of the table.

Lens, meanwhile, will be looking to capitalise on their games in hand by returning to the top half of the table, having dropped to 11th prior to the international break.

We say: Dijon 1-3 Lens


Lens play with an expansive style which is always great to watch for the neutral, and we expect it work to good effect against a Dijon side who are lacking offensive quality to punish them on the break.

The attacking trio of Gael Kakuta, Simon Banza and Socota could run riot against Dijon, with Linares requiring a defensive masterclass from his players if they are to shut their opponents out.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Reims vs. Nimes (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Reims will be aiming to stretch their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to four matches when they play host to Nimes on Sunday following the international break.

In contrast, the visitors have lost their last four in the top flight and currently occupy the relegation playoff spot heading into gameweek 11.

We say: Reims 3-1 Nimes


Prolific Reims frontman Dia will certainly fancy his chances against a Nimes side who have already shipped 19 goals this season, and given the respective form of the two clubs heading into this bout, we can only see one clear winner. Nimes will be hoping that the international break has done them some good, but Reims should pick up where they left off and march to a convincing triumph here.

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

Montpellier vs. Strasbourg (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Montpellier HSC will be looking to pick up where they left off before the international break when they welcome an out-of-sorts Strasbourg side to the Stade de la Mosson for Sunday's Ligue 1 showdown.

While the hosts recorded back-to-back victories before international football took centre stage, Strasbourg's lowly form continued as they lost two on the bounce earlier this month.

We say: Montpellier HSC 2-0 Strasbourg


It would be wholly inaccurate to suggest that Strasbourg have simply rolled over and allowed their defence to be breached too easily over the past few weeks. Laurey's men have given it a good go, but their results have still been poor. In contrast, Montpellier are only looking upwards after a bright start to November, so we are backing the hosts to walk away with all three points in this one.

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

Angers vs. Lyon (Sunday, 4.00pm)

Angers and Lyon will both be looking to make it back-to-back wins in Ligue 1 when the two sides lock horns at the Stade Raymond Kopa on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts trounced Nimes 5-1 before the international break, while Lyon picked up a victory of their own as they scraped past Saint-Etienne 2-1 in gameweek 10.

We say: Angers 2-3 Lyon


Angers are more than capable of making this a challenging afternoon for Lyon, and their recent performances suggest that the hosts will do just that. Fans and neutrals alike should strap in for a thrilling game packed with plenty of goals, but even with a few absentees, we still think Lyon will keep their unbeaten run going with a win here, albeit not a straightforward one.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Lille vs. Lorient (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Lille will endeavour to end a three-game winless run in Ligue 1 when they welcome a floundering Lorient side to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday evening.

The hosts suffered a 3-2 defeat to Brest before the international break, while Lorient tasted defeat as well with a 2-0 home loss to Nantes in gameweek 10.

We say: Lille 2-1 Lorient


Both teams have seen their squads cut short following the international break, which should give Lorient in particular some much-needed confidence as they mark their return to top-flight action with an extremely difficult test. This game is likely to be a tighter affair than the Lille faithful would have been hoping for, but we still expect Les Dogues to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 with a narrow victory on their own turf.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
