Ligue 1 betting tips: 5 best bets for the weekend of November 9-11

Leigh Copson 6 Nov 2018

Ligue 1 predictions for the weekend of November 9-11. Can Paris St Germain continune their record-setting run of form to pile more pressure on new Monaco boss Thierry Henry, and will Lille keep their 100% home record intact when they entertain Strasbourg on Friday night? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Lille v Strasbourg (Friday 19:45 GMT)


Lille go into Friday night’s match looking to end a two-game losing sequence and exact a measure of revenge on Strasbourg for dumping them out of the cup just over a week ago. Christophe Galtier’s side saw a four-match winning run in all competitions come to an end in that 2-0 reverse, but you have to like their chances of getting their revenge here. Strasbourg are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions and they have lost only two of their six away games so far, but it is almost impossible to look past a Lille team that have been flawless at home. The hosts have won all six of their league games at home this season, out-scoring the opposition 15-3, and I expect them to make it seven wins from seven here.


Guingamp v Lyon (Saturday 16:00 GMT)


Lyon’s bid for a top-three finish has suffered something of setback in recent weeks with just two wins coming from their last five games, but they have lost only once in that time, against Paris St Germain, so nobody will be panicking about this dip in form. They will be eager to get back to winning ways on Saturday though and they have the ideal fixture in a trip to face rock-bottom Guingamp. The home side have enjoyed some improved form over the past several weeks, but that is not saying a great deal for a team that opened with six straight defeats. Guingamp will almost certainly be heading down this season and Lyon should help them on their way here, but do not be surprised if the hosts score – they have netted in all five of their home matches so far and Lyon have been struggling for clean sheets on their travels.


St Etienne v Reims (Saturday 19:00 GMT)


St Etienne struck twice in the final 17 minutes to snatch a 4-3 home win over Angers last time out and that victory has them knocking on the door to the top four. They will now have their sights set on making it back-to-back wins when they entertain a Reims side who have won their last two league games as part of a five-match unbeaten run. Reims have been decent on their travels too, collecting points in four of their six away games, but I cannot go against a St Etienne that are rarely beaten on their home turf and are yet to be beaten at home this season. The hosts should collect all three points here and I expect to see a couple of goals too – all five of their five league wins so far have produced Over 1.5 Total Goals and there have been at least two goals netted in each of their last eight outings.

Toulouse v Amiens (Saturday 19:00 GMT)


Toulouse were able to end a three-match losing sequence in all competitions with the draw at Strasbourg last weekend, but they are now without a victory in their last four competitive fixtures and they will be eager to stop the rot before they are sucked into the relegation zone. Could Saturday’s meeting with third-from-bottom Amiens prove to be perfect timing for them? The visitors have the worst away record in the French top flight having collected just one point and scored only one goal in six fixtures, so if there is a team out there that Toulouse can beat at the Stadium de Toulouse it is Amiens. So despite their poor form, I am backing the home side to win this weekend.


Monaco v Paris St Germain (Sunday 20:00 GMT)


Thierry Henry’s miserable start as Monaco manager continued last weekend as they were beaten 1-0 at Reims, so the last thing the Arsenal legend needed this Sunday was a home game against runaway league leaders Paris St Germain. PSG have made a record-setting start to their defence of the French title, winning all 12 of their games so far to storm 11 points clear at the summit, and former Monaco star Kylian Mbappe has played a starring role by netting eight goals in 11 Ligue 1 appearances. That has not stopped manager Thomas Tuchel and team-mate Neymar from questioning his maturity, but the simple fact is when he steps out onto the field he scores goals and it would surprise nobody to see him add to his growing tally by netting against his former club here. Therefore Mbappe to score & PSG to win looks like being a ‘banker’ bet for Sunday night.
