Angers v Montpellier predictions & betting tips

This is a dear rubber between two sides that have secured top-flight football for another season, but I expect Angers to be the side that signs off with the win. Montpellier have been woeful on their travels this season and even though this match does not really matter, their record suggests a home win is likely here.

Guingamp v Metz predictions & betting tips

Here is another Ligue 1 match that has very little importance with both sides simply playing out their schedule. Guingamp have been solid at home this season and Metz have not been particularly impressive, so I am going for a home win here.

Lille v Nantes predictions & betting tips

These two clubs are merely playing out their schedules after Nantes’ top-six push came to an end recently. Their away form has been decent with six wins and seven draws and I believe they will pick up another point against a Lille side that have toiled at home, losing nine times while winning just six.

Lorient v Bordeaux predictions & betting tips

This is a big match for both clubs, with Bordeaux chasing a spot in next season’s Champions League while Lorient are aiming to ensure survival or at least earn a second shot at staying up via the play-off. I am backing Bordeaux to take it. Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side are unbeaten in their last six games in Ligue 1 and they can get the better of the home side for the third time this season, having already beaten them in the league and in the cup.

Lyon v Nice predictions & betting tips

Lyon and Nice have already secured third place and fourth place respectively heading into the final game, and neither side can improved their position with three points on Saturday. Nice have enjoyed a fantastic season if their title challenge did come up short, but I am siding with a Lyon outfit that have been racking up home wins in Ligue 1 and the Europa League in recent months. They should record one more before they sign off for the summer.

Marseille v Bastia predictions & betting tips

A point could see Bastia snatch a place in the relegation play-off while a win could see them climb to safety on the final day, but I do not see them getting either. Hosts Marseille are clinging onto a top-six spot that would secure a place in next season’s Europa League and they should ensure they are playing European football next season by beating Bastia here. They should also keep a clean sheet against the second-lowest scoring side in the top tier.

Nancy v St Etienne predictions & betting tips

Nancy go into the final weekend of the season bottom of the table and they simply have to win to have any chance of landing a second chance at survival through the play-offs. Their form over the past few months has been nothing short of miserable, but this match matters to them and it is merely a dead rubber for St Etienne who are out of the European running after back-to-back losses. I have a feeling that desperate and need could be the spark they need to spring an upset.

Paris St Germain v Caen predictions & betting tips

Paris St Germain’s title challenge came to an end when Monaco in midweek, so now it is all about next weekend’s cup final for the outgoing champions. They will want to warm up for it in the best possible fashion and they should do that by beating Caen. PSG should also keep a clean sheet too – after all, this is a team that have conceded only six league goals at home this season.

Rennes v Monaco predictions & betting tips

Monaco wrapped up the French title with a 2-0 victory over St Etienne in midweek, so there is very little riding on Saturday’s trip to face a Rennes side that are out of the race for European football. The hosts have been solid at home this season, losing just twice, but I expect defeat number three to come against the newly-crowned champions, who have already beaten Rennes in convincing fashion this season.

Toulouse v Dijon predictions & betting tips

Three points will guarantee top-flight survival for Dijon, while a draw or defeat would need them needing favours elsewhere. They are going to need favours. Dijon’s away record makes for pathetic reading with just one win in their 18 games so far and that does not bode well for them against a Toulouse outfit that have not lost many home games over the past few months.
