Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including Strasbourg vs. Paris Saint-Germain

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures - Strasbourg vs. Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier vs. Marseille.

Having been knocked off their perch by new leaders Lille last time out, Paris Saint-Germain will aspire to keep the pressure on their title rivals when they travel to Strasbourg for Saturday's Ligue 1 battle.

The hosts beat Bordeaux in a thriller by three goals to two last time out, while PSG's defeat to Lille preceded a memorable Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

We say: Strasbourg 0-1 Paris Saint-Germain

Strasbourg could potentially spring a surprise given PSG's mounting injury problems and Champions League ventures, but the champions could slip further down the table in Ligue 1 should they fail to come up trumps here. Pochettino's side are certainly not expected to replicate their Allianz Arena performance this weekend, but their away record is nothing short of astonishing, so PSG should do enough to scrape a narrow but crucial win.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Montpellier vs. Marseille (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Montpellier HSC will aspire to extend their unbeaten run across all competitions to 13 matches when they welcome Marseille to the Stade de la Mosson for Saturday's Ligue 1 showdown.

La Paillade's most recent fixture saw them scrape past fourth-tier side Chateaubriant in the Coupe de France, while Marseille eased to a 2-0 win over basement side Dijon.

We say: Montpellier HSC 1-1 Marseille

Marseille just cannot seem to hack it on rival turf no matter who is in control of the reins, while Montpellier's home fortunes have dramatically improved in recent weeks. On the whole, the two clubs can feel positive about their end-of-season aspirations given their respective results, and the result of this game could have a major impact on the race for fifth spot, but Montpellier have demonstrated their affinity for draws and we can envisage another stalemate this weekend.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
