Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including Marseille vs. Bordeaux

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 matches - Reims vs. Lorient and Marseille vs. Bordeaux.

Reims and Lorient will both be looking to end torrid runs of form when the two struggling Ligue 1 sides meet at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II on Saturday.

Only two points separate the two clubs in the table heading into gameweek seven, with Reims sitting in 19th and Lorient occupying 17th spot as things stand.

We say: Reims 2-1 Lorient


Both of these teams have started the season poorly but will see this game as a prime opportunity to register a vital three points. With Reims and Lorient both seeing some of their crop turn out for their national sides, changes may be expected on both ends owing to a congested schedule, but we are backing the hosts to just edge this one.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Marseille vs. Bordeaux (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Two sides neck-and-neck in the Ligue 1 table will lock horns at the Orange Velodrome on Saturday evening as Marseille play host to Bordeaux.

Both teams have taken nine points from six games this season, with Marseille sitting 10th while Bordeaux lie one place above in ninth heading into the weekend.

We say: Marseille 1-1 Bordeaux


It remains to be seen whether or not Bordeaux can keep up their remarkable defensive record as the season hots up, but Gasset's men are now prepared to come up against a Marseille side without one of their key attackers this weekend. This promises to be an extremely tight affair, and while both managers will be hoping to mark their return from the international break with a hard-fought win, we are expecting this encounter to end all square.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
