Ligue 1 Predictions, Round 9

GFFN editor-in-chief  Luke Entwistle and GFFN’s  Raphaël Jucobin face off in our Ligue 1 predictions competition. It’s three points for a correct score, two points for a correct score difference, and one point for a correct result. Who will come out on top at the end of the season?


Raphaël: 33

Luke: 35

Game of the week: OGC Nice v Olympique de Marseille, Saturday 20:00 (UK)

Ligue 1 returns after the international break, and all eyes will be on the Côte d’Azur. Table-toppers AS Monaco and OGC Nice both play at home this weekend, with the latter facing Olympique de Marseille in an all-Italian affair, as Francesco Farioli’s side come up against the Phocéens of Gennaro Gattuso. The latter got his first win since joining the club just before the international break, and he will now be hoping for his side to kick on, and get back towards those European places. Nice, meanwhile, could provisionally go top of Ligue 1, with Monaco playing on Sunday. 

Elsewhere, PSG have the chance to pile more misery on Strasbourg. Patrick Vieira’s side have lost their last two, and in the wake of their last defeat, at home to Nantes, there were the first signs of fan discontent. The Parc des Princes is certainly a difficult place to go if you’re trying to get your season back on track. The round concludes with Lyon hosting Clermont Foot, the bottom and second-from-bottom teams in Ligue 1. Both sides are without a win. Will that change on Sunday night?
