Marseille vs. Nimes (Saturday, 4.00pm)
The visitors, meanwhile, are facing an uphill battle to end a three-game losing streak as they lie five points adrift of safety at the midway stage of the season.
We say: Marseille 2-0 Nimes
Nimes can feel proud of their efforts against a high-flying Lille side, but falling to yet another defeat is sure to have dampened the spirits of the Crocodiles faithful even more. Marseille have not covered themselves in glory recently, but they will view this match as the perfect opportunity to get their title charge back on track, so we expect Villas-Boas's men to prevail comfortably on their own turf.

Angers vs. PSG (Saturday, 8.00pm)
Mauricio Pochettino will be eyeing further success after winning his first piece of silverware as a manager when Paris Saint-Germain travel to Angers for Saturday's Ligue 1 battle.
The visitors defeated Marseille 2-1 in the Trophee des Champions on Wednesday evening, whereas Angers have had a full week to recover from their crushing defeat at Monaco.
We say: Angers 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain
PSG's defence is certainly not impenetrable, and Angers can afford to feel cautiously optimistic heading into what would be a true test of their European credentials. However, the champions are almost back at full strength and will be buoyed by claiming their maiden piece of silverware for the campaign.
Furthermore, with the prospect of Di Maria, Mbappe and Neymar all lining up from the first whistle, this should be a resounding win for Pochettino's side.
