Saturday's Ligue 1 predictions including Montpellier vs. Paris Saint-Germain

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures - Rennes vs. Lens and Montpellier vs. Paris Saint-Germain.

Rennes will be aiming to win their first game since October when they welcome Lens to Roazhon Park for Saturday's Ligue 1 showdown.

The two sides are only separated by one point in the table, with Les Rouge et Noir in seventh, while Lens - who have a game in hand - sit ninth ahead of the weekend.

We say: Rennes 2-1 Lens

Lens have been much stronger at home than on their travels this season, but there is reason for optimism among the Sang et Or camp given Rennes's abysmal spell of form. Stephan's side must end their winless run soon lest they risk slipping out of contention for a European berth, and we are backing Rennes to finally register a vital three points with a slender victory on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

Montpellier vs. PSG (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Paris Saint-Germain will endeavour to build on their dramatic Champions League victory over Manchester United when they travel to Montpellier HSC for Saturday's Ligue 1 fixture.

However, the champions are hoping to avoid a third game without a win in the top flight and are facing a Montpellier side who have triumphed four times on the bounce in Ligue 1.

We say: Montpellier HSC 2-2 Paris Saint-Germain

Montpellier would normally be fearful of welcoming the champions to the Stade de la Mosson, but PSG have bigger fish to fry at the moment and could rest some big-name stars with the Champions League in mind. Given the hosts' strong spell of form over the past few weeks, we can see Der Zakarian's men coming away from their clash with the champions with a vital point this weekend.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
