One of the top leagues in Europe, the Ligue 1 is a fantastic league to watch when it comes to the next stars of world football. France has produced some of the best talents recently which has led to their dominance in international football. With PSG in the mix and all the investment they benefit from, it’s still not guaranteed that they would win the league so easily with Lille usurping them and others prior too.

Tip: What is happening at St Etienne? They have conceded 11 goals in the last 5 matches and this takes their total tally to 43 goals conceded in the last 21 matches. It is sad to see a team destined for relegation but they going away to Angers, who will be licking their lips at the opportunity to put some goals through Ligue 1’s whipping boys, will be a tough ask.
Date: 22/1 Match: PSG vs Reims
Win Bet: PSG and Over 1.5 Goals
Tip: PSG have, arguably, the three best strikers in the world and, when they are on form, they are simply a nightmare to contain.They have scored at least 2 goals in 12 of their last 13 games and been winning at halftime in 6 of their last 8 games, such is their tendency to flood forward. Reims hold mid table a few points away from the drop zone and have conceded, on average, a little over 1 goal a game since the start of the season – they face off against a side that has scored 42 goals in 21 games in the league.
Date: 22/1 Match: Metz vs Nice
Win Bet: Both Teams to Score
Tip: Nice find themselves sitting second in the league and have taken 12 points from the last available 15 in the league. Despite their form being good they have not beaten Metz in their last 3 meetings which raises an eyebrow. For the spread bettors, this fixture has produced both teams scoring in 80% of their last 5 meetings and should be, today, another good fixture for the BTTS.
Date: 21/1 Match: Lyon vs St Etienne
Win Bet: Over 1.5 Goals By Half Time
Tip: Lyon should be considered favourites for this game. St Etienne have been having a horrid time of late in Ligue 1 having taken zero points in their last 5 matches and at the foot of the table with only 12 points from 20 games. Lyon, despite their promise for the league have been a mid table side much of the new season and will have sights on a Europe position for next year. To obtain a position it is games like this they need to put to bed early. With the goals conceded between them reaching 69 in a combined 40 games I would expect the game to open up early.
Date: 19/1 Match: Clermont vs Strasbourg
Win Bet: Strasbourg Win
Tip: League new boys Clermont Foot had a tough weekend away losing 4-0 to Monaco. Strasbourg have already picked up their highest points tally after 20 games in Ligue 1 since 1997. They are top of the form table with 12 points in their last available 15 and are in cruise control currently. Strasbourg have won 7 of their last 10 games played on a Wednesday and Clermont Foot should be ready to defend with their lives if they are going to keep Strasbourg from recording an 8th win mid week.
