    Before the round - trends on French Ligue 1 (29/11/2020)

    French Ligue 1 returns this weekend with more exclusive fixtures, ready to kick in. After 11 rounds played there are no surprises in the top 3, but for how long?


    Lyon - Stade Reims


    Lyon started their new campaign in a rather outstanding way, losing just once and are now just 4 points away from the top.

    On Sunday they face Stade Reims, which considering the away side's form might be easy three points.

    • Lyon have not been beaten in their last 9 straight home clashes in Ligue 1.
    • Lyon are unbeaten in 10 of their 11 most recent matches (Ligue 1).
    • Stade Reims have managed just 2 wins in their last 11 league games.
    • There have been over 2.5 goals in 5 of Stade Reims's last 6 Ligue 1 games.
    • Prediction: Lyon @ 1.44


    RC Lens - Angers SCO


    Next match is expected to be a close one between RC Lens and Angers SCO, having in mind both team's mixed results lately.

    The home side have lost just once in their 6 most recent matches, that is why they are being linked as the favourites for this encounter.

    • RC Lens haven't lost in 7 of their last 8 matches in Ligue 1.
    • The team of RC Lens managed a run of 3 home Ligue 1 games in which they have scored at least 2 goals.
    • In 6 of Angers's 8 most recent games (Ligue 1) both teams scored.
    • In Angers SCO's current campaign, they have allowed 1 or more goals in their most recent 8 matches in Ligue 1.
    • Prediction: RC Lens @ 2.15


    FC Metz - Stade Brestois


    In another Sunday fixture FC Metz will be aiming for another good result, taking at least the point against Stade Brestois.

    One thing we should point out is that the away side have successfully achieved two consecutive wins in their most recent encounters, so they will probably be eager to add more to their tally.

    • FC Metz have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 games in Ligue 1.
    • In all of their 8 most recent matches of Ligue 1, there have been no losses for FC Metz.
    • Stade Brestois have suffered 3 straight defeats in their most recent away clashes in Ligue 1.
    • Stade Brestois's performance has been disappointing of late, as they have won just 1 of their 9 most recent away Ligue 1 clashes.
    • Prediction: FC Metz @ 2.25


    OGC Nice - Dijon FCO


    One team, who didn't start the new season in an expected way is OGC Nice, who have lost 3 of their 6 most recent matches.

    On Sunday they host Dijon FCO, which might get them back on their feet, having in mind the away side's dreadful form.

    • OGC Nice are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 Ligue 1 games.
    • In 9 of OGC Nice's 10 most recent home games (Ligue 1) both teams scored.
    • Dijon FCO have failed to score a single goal in 10 of their last 15 away Ligue 1 games.
    • In their last 25 games in Ligue 1, Dijon FCO have recorded only 3 wins.
    • Prediction: OGC Nice @ 1.88
