An enticing top-of-the-table showdown in Ligue 1 takes place on Saturday afternoon as early leaders Saint-Etienne play host to second-placed Rennes.

Both sides have taken 10 points from a possible 12 thus far, with Saint-Etienne playing out a 2-2 draw with Nantes and Rennes overcoming Monaco last time out.

We say: Saint-Etienne 1-2 Rennes

Saturday's showdown promises to be a fascinating encounter between two sides enjoying excellent starts to the new campaign. However, Saint-Etienne have a few injury concerns to deal with and the Rennes faithful will be anticipating another strong performance following their side's thrilling victory over fellow high-flyers Monaco, so we are backing the visitors to scrape a narrow win in this top-of-the-table clash.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Marseille will endeavour to get back to winning ways when they welcome Metz to the Orange Velodrome for Saturday's Ligue 1 clash.

The hosts shared the spoils with Lille in a 1-1 draw last time out, while Metz picked up their first win of the season against Reims in gameweek four.

We say: Marseille 2-0 Metz

Marseille have been handed the perfect chance to get back to winning ways against a Metz side who have lost three from four at the start of the new season. While the visitors will be encouraged by their victory over Reims, they will prove no match for a near full-strength Marseille side, so we can only see a comfortable home win in this encounter.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
