Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including PSG vs. Lille

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures, including Paris Saint-Germain vs. Lille.


Monaco vs. Metz (Saturday, 12.00pm)

Monaco will hope to keep pace with the title-chasing pack in Ligue 1 when they welcome Metz to the Stade Louis II on Saturday lunchtime.

Niko Kovac's side thrashed Saint-Etienne 4-0 in their final game before the international break, while Metz were no match for Rennes as they lost 3-0 on March 20.

We say: Monaco 3-1 Metz


Monaco's stellar home form coupled with Metz's away day specialities should, on paper, lead to a fascinating battle, but we can only see one winner here. The hosts have not given up on their title aspirations and can frighten any team with their attacking prowess, so we are backing a comprehensive victory for Kovac's side on their own turf.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

PSG vs. Lille (Saturday, 4.00pm)

Ligue 1 returns with a bang on Saturday afternoon as leaders Paris Saint-Germain welcome second-placed Lille to the Parc des Princes for a mouthwatering top-of-the-table clash.

Both sides have accumulated 63 points from 30 matches so far, but something has to give as Lille attempt to end PSG's perennial reign of dominance in the French top flight.

We say: Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 Lille


With Lyon and Monaco still very much in with a chance of Ligue 1 glory, the result of this tie will not determine the destination of the crown, but the victor - if there is one - will open up a crucial gap at the top with three points at the Parc des Princes. There could hardly be a better way to welcome Ligue 1 back to our TV screens than with this top-of-the-table battle, and even though Lille's away form has been sensational, Mbappe's PSG were simply too strong for Lyon and we cannot see any other result than another win for the reigning champions.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Lens vs. Lyon (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Ligue 1 surprise package Lens will aim to further their charge for a European spot when they welcome title-chasing Lyon to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis for Saturday's battle.

The hosts enjoyed a 2-1 triumph over Strasbourg before the international break, whereas Lyon suffered a crushing 4-2 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain as their hopes of Ligue 1 glory took yet another blow.

We say: Lens 1-2 Lyon


Lyon may as well kiss the title goodbye if they fail to take maximum points from their next few fixtures, but their impressive record on their travels should help get them over the line this weekend. Lens are no pushovers and have an unbeaten run of their own to maintain, but Haise's men are not exactly a force to be reckoned with at home, so we are backing Garcia's side to scrape a narrow victory and keep their hopes of silverware alive.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
