PSG vs. Nice (Saturday, 4.00pm)
The hosts scraped a 1-0 victory over Caen in their midweek cup game, while Nice eased past fellow top-flight outfit Nimes for a second victory in succession.
We say: Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Nice
PSG's infirmary is starting to fill up again at the worst possible time, but the champions should have no problem overcoming a Nice outfit who have flattered to deceive for most of the campaign. The visitors are showing signs of life at long last, but Pochettino's men are expected to have too much firepower for Ursea's side and will look to keep pace with Lille and Lyon with a routine win this weekend.
Reims vs. Lens (Saturday, 6.00pm)
In contrast, the European-chasing visitors head into this game on the back of a 4-2 success against fellow Ligue 1 outfit Nantes in their midweek cup game.
We say: Reims 1-2 Lens
Both of these teams know where the back of the net is, and while this game is unlikely to be as enthralling as November's eight-goal draw, it should be a fascinating spectacle nonetheless. However, Lens have consistently proven themselves as a force to be reckoned with on their travels, and we expect Haise's men to keep their European aspirations alive with a slender win this weekend.
Lyon vs. Montpellier (Saturday, 8.00pm)
Both teams secured their passages into the next round of the Coupe de France in midweek, as Lyon thrashed Ajaccio while Montpellier overcame fellow top-flight outfit Strasbourg.
We say: Lyon 3-1 Montpellier HSC
Lyon have not been able to get the better of Montpellier very often in seasons gone by, and Der Zakarian's men now look capable of stringing a set of respectable results together following two wins on the bounce. However, the merciless hosts are expected to prove too strong for a fatigued Paillade, and we cannot envisage any other result than a dominant home victory.
