Nice v Guingamp ESPN, 2pm
It's just one win in seven for Nice, for whom Mario Balotelli looked off the pace in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Bastia.

Draws are becoming a speciality for Lucien Favre's side and they may have to settle for a point against Guingamp. The Bretons, missing classy full-back Jordan Ikoko, struggle for clean sheets but are still going well.

Key stat
Nice have drawn four of their last five league matches

Toulouse v St-Etienne BT Sport 3, 4pm
Without a goal in their last three and with just two wins since the end of October, these are troubled times in Toulouse.

St-Etienne came from behind to beat an awful Angers last time out but lack much of a goal threat – they started the weekend as the lowest scorers in the top half of Ligue 1.

Steve Davies's recommendation
One or both teams not to score

Key stat
Fifteen of St-Etienne's 21 league matches have produced under 2.5 goals

PSG v Monaco BT3, 8pm
Quite simply this is the biggest match around the continent this weekend with Monaco, the highest scorers in Europe's elite leagues, heading to Paris with a three-point advantage at the Ligue 1 summit. 

Whether Monaco's defence is good enough will be the key question and PSG's 20-goal hitman Edinson Cavani could once again be the difference. Cavani has scored in 19 of his 27 appearances for PSG in all competitions this season.
