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

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Ligue 1 fixtures - Marseille vs. Nantes and Paris Saint-Germain vs. Bordeaux.

Marseille will be looking to bounce back from yet another dismal night in the Champions League when they play host to Nantes at the Orange Velodrome in Saturday's Ligue 1 showdown.

Les Olympiens lost 2-0 on their own turf to Porto in midweek, while Nantes also took to the pitch on Wednesday, playing out a 1-1 draw with Lens in the league.

We say: Marseille 2-1 Nantes

Marseille cannot rely on Florian Thauvin as their main goal threat despite the Frenchman's evident talent, and Nantes will take confidence from the fact that Les Olympiens are sure to be disheartened from their abysmal performance in Europe. Nevertheless, Villas-Boas's men have produced the goods in the league and Nantes have had little time to rest as well, so we expect Marseille to take the spoils, but it will not be a comfortable victory by any means.

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

PSG vs. Bordeaux (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Paris Saint-Germain will look to keep the momentum going from their midweek victory over RB Leipzig when they welcome Bordeaux to the Parc des Princes for Saturday's Ligue 1 encounter.

Similarly, the visitors are also aiming to build on an impressive win as they overcame Rennes 1-0 in their most recent domestic outing.

We say: Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 Bordeaux

With both of these French giants boasting remarkable defensive records ahead of Saturday's clash, fans can typically expect to see the goals flying in at the Parc des Princes. PSG's medical room is slowly emptying at a crucial time for Tuchel, and while the German is expected to shuffle the pack ahead of next week's trip to Old Trafford, the champions should have the firepower needed to get the job done on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 3.5 goals.
