Ligue 1 Predictions, Round 8

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: 30

Luke: 33

Game of the week: Stade Rennais v Paris Saint-Germain, Sunday 19:45 (UK)

Reims could take top spot in Ligue 1 when they face current leaders Monaco on Saturday night. Les Monégasques didn’t exactly struggle in the absence of Takumi Minamino and Aleksandr Golovin with Monaco beating Marseille 3-2. However, the duo, as well as Eliesse Ben Seghir, who is yet to feature this season, return against Reims. 

Elsewhere, Lens face Lille in the Derby du Nord. Neither side has been on top form in the league so far this season. However, Lens will be buoyed by their victory over Arsenal. Lille only returned with a point from their trip to the Faroe Islands, however, with Paulo Fonseca heavily rotating his side for the Europa Conference League match, he will at least be able to count on the freshness of players such as Jonathan David in what will be a difficult fixture regardless. 

Finally, PSG face Rennes at the Roazhon Park. Neither side comes into the match brimming with confidence after their respective European losses in midweek. Les Parisiens’ league form hasn’t been spectacular either. Luis Enrique’s side sit fifth, two points behind Monaco, and so they’ll be looking to close that gap.
