With how tight the league is, both know they could move up a few places with a win and Saint Etienne could even be in sixth come the final whistle – so the incentive is certainly there.
Then, league-leaders Paris Saint Germain will be looking to move clear at the top of the table with a comfortable victory at home to struggling Ajaccio. PSG have won their last four, scoring twelve goals and not conceding any, so they are certainly in good form in the league.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side lok to be firing on all cylinders after a early season wobble, and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring in almost every game the 1/5 on the home win looks the banker of the weekend.
Ajaccio are just three points above the bottom three and are leaking goals right now, so could be dreading this trip to the capital.
Moving onto Saturday, the early kick-off sees Lyon, who are currently level on points with PSG, on their travels to a Troyes side that are six points away from safety. The away team are the big favourites, but know they have to perform to take the spoils.
Rémi Garde’s side should have too much at the Stade de l’Aube and at a shade under evens should see plenty of support from punters.
An interesting looking game on Saturday evening sees champions Montpellier host Lorient, who currently sit in fifth position.
Montpellier are in mid-table at the moment, so need to string a few wins together, whereas Lorient could go fourth with a victory.
Evian and Brest are separated by just two points in the bottom half of the table, so we have a real six-pointer taking place on Saturday evening.
Lille have now gone five games unbeaten and sit comfortably in the top half of the table, so will be expecting a victory when they head to bottom of the table Nancy. The hosts have accumulated just eleven points this campaign and have to show a massive change in form to beat the drop.
Rennes and Bordeaux also lock horns and the home team will be looking to make it three wins out of three and ensure they end the weekend in the top four. Bordeaux have drawn their last five and are desperate for a victory, but must be at their best to do that this weekend.
On Sunday, Reims and Bastia meet and with both clubs currently in the bottom half of the table, this could be a fairly nervy 90 minutes. Bastia might be the favourites though as Reims have not won in eleven matches.
Then, Nice will be looking to make it into the top six with a home victory against Valenciennes. These two are both on 29 points at the moment and looking good in the league, so this should be a cracking encounter.
Finally, Marseille can keep the pace or even move ahead of top spot when they head to Sochaux. The visitors have won their last three and their opponents have not taken anything from three matches, so Marseille are sure to be confident of a victory.
It should be a thrilling weekend in Ligue 1.
