Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including Marseille vs. Lorient

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures - Angers vs. Rennes and Marseille vs. Lorient.

An Angers side with virtually nothing but pride to play for welcome a Rennes outfit still fighting for the fifth and final European spot in Ligue 1 on Saturday morning.

Les Scoistes were put to the sword 3-0 by Lyon in their most recent fixture, while Rennes boosted their bid for a top-five finish with a narrow 1-0 triumph over Nantes.

We say: Angers 0-2 Rennes

Angers have enjoyed some unforeseen success against Rennes both in the league and cup this season, but Genesio is firmly steering Les Rouge et Noir in the right direction, and his side have plenty more to play for than their hosts do. Moulin will not want to see his side finish the season with a whimper despite their mid-table standing, but we still expect Rennes to prevail as they push for fifth spot.

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

Marseille vs. Lorient (Saturday, 4.00pm)

Two Ligue 1 teams in desperate need of three points for entirely different reasons prepare for battle at the Orange Velodrome on Saturday as European hopefuls Marseille take on relegation-threatened Lorient.

Jorge Sampaoli's side played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Montpellier HSC last time out, while Lorient's momentum took a significant hit as they were thrashed 4-1 by fellow newly-promoted side Lens.

We say: Marseille 3-1 Lorient

Searching for just their second away win of the campaign, Lorient are fighting an uphill battle to boost their survival hopes at the newly-fortified Orange Velodrome. A reshuffled Marseille defence is certainly cause for optimism for Moffi and co, but we cannot see Sampaoli's men letting up as they aim to keep their European dream alive - this should be a convincing win for Les Olympiens.

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