Sunday's Ligue 1 predictions including Nice vs. Reims

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Ligue 1 fixtures, including Nice vs. Reims.

Nice will look to recover from suffering their first defeat of the season last weekend, when they welcome Reims to the Allianz Riviera on Sunday.

The visitors are also in fine form, but speculation surrounding manager Will Still could be a possible distraction here, as Reims look to maintain a European push.

We say: Nice 0-0 Reims

With two pragmatic sides who have enjoyed success at keeping things tight and frustrating opposition attackers, there is a high chance that they could cancel each other out here.

Remarkably, five of the last six head-to-heads between these two sides have ended 0-0, with just 19 goals in their last 16 meetings, and a repeat is very possible.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Strasbourg vs. Le Havre (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Aiming to bring an end to the division's longest current winless run, Strasbourg will welcome top-flight newcomers Le Havre to Stade de la Meinau on Sunday afternoon in Ligue 1.

Les Alsaciens are sliding towards the bottom of the league standings following an initially-positive start to the term, while Havre are proving that they are not just in the first tier to make up the numbers.

We say: Strasbourg 1-1 Le Havre

Strasbourg are enduring the longest winless run in the division but will have taken a bit of confidence from their late equaliser at Brest on Thursday.

Le Havre have been a tough nut to crack on their travels since returning to the top table of French football, and we expect the visitors to earn a point at Stade de la Meinau this weekend.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Clermont vs. Lille (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Lille can stretch their unbeaten run to 13 matches in all competitions when they travel to Stade Gabriel Montpied on Sunday for a date with Clermont.

CF63 began this month with a 3-0 defeat at Brest and are currently three points below the relegation line, while Les Dogues are fourth in the Ligue 1 table, following a 2-0 triumph over Metz.

We say: Clermont 0-3 Lille

Given the contrasting forms of each side, not to mention the significantly superior quality of the visitors, we project Clermont will suffer another blow that will take them further into the relegation zone.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Metz vs. Brest (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Looking to avoid back-to-back defeats, top-flight newcomers Metz will welcome Brest to Stade Saint-Symphorien for a Ligue 1 encounter on Sunday afternoon.

Les Grenats saw their decent run of form come to an end at top-three chasing Lille last time out, while Brest were forced to share the points with Strasbourg on Thursday night.

We say: Metz 2-1 Brest

Metz will be desperate to get back to winning ways after a frustrating match at Lille, and we believe that Les Grenats will have enough equality to cause their visitors issues.

Brest face a quick turnaround following Thursday's meeting with Strasbourg, and we feel that the proximity of Sunday's clash to their last could lead to a sluggish performance.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Lyon vs. Toulouse (Sunday, 4.05pm)

After their remarkable crisis continued in midweek, Lyon welcome Toulouse to the Groupama Stadium on Sunday looking to pick themselves up off the canvas.

A thrashing away to bitter rivals Marseille was possibly the lowest point of the campaign so far for Ligue 1's bottom club, who are on the verge of hiring a third permanent manager of the season already.

We say: Lyon 1-1 Toulouse

Toulouse are winless in seven league games, having lost three and recorded four 1-1 draws, so despite Lyon's woes, they may not be able to take advantage.

A draw does not do the home side much good, but with no permanent manager and confidence shattered, getting anything on the board at this stage may be acceptable for now.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Lorient vs. Marseille (Sunday, 7.45pm)

Marseille travel to Lorient in Ligue 1 on Sunday fresh off the back of a memorable Derby des Olympiques thrashing in midweek.

Gennaro Gattuso recorded his finest result in the Marseille dugout, beating Lyon 3-0 on Wednesday to move them closer to the European places.

We say: Lorient 1-2 Marseille

Lorient have not beaten Marseille at any venue since a barnstorming 5-3 victory back in 2015, and not at home since early 2012, while recent form also suggests the odds are stacked against them.

While Marseille have been extremely poor on the road in Ligue 1, a first win of the season away from home cannot be too far away given their upturn in fortunes under Gattuso, and this could be the place to get it.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
