Ligue 1 Predictions | Round 27

GFFN editor-in-chief Raphaël Jucobin and GFFN senior editor Luke Entwistle 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: 148

Luke: 154

Game of the week: Lille OSC v Olympique Lyonnais, Friday 20:00 (UK)

Luke: Paris Saint-Germain are in need of a win to lift the mood at the club following their Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich. They couldn’t ask for a much easier tie to bounce back, and they should make east work against a struggling Stade Brestois. Elsewhere, Lille will be hoping to keep pace with the European challengers when they face Lyon, who could still qualify for Europe next season but are more likely to do so by winning the Coupe de France. 

Monaco are the latest side to have a crack at beating Reims, who remain unbeaten since the arrival of Will Still in September. Les Monégasques are in need of a win to retain their podium spot after failing to win any of their last three games in all competitions. Nice, who only get back from Moldova on Friday, have a tight turnaround as they face Nantes, who beat them in the Coupe de France final last season. Marseille are now very much outsiders for the Ligue 1 title, but they should keep up the chase when they welcome relegation-struggling Strasbourg.
