Flying Lyon can stop their Rhone-Alpes derby rot

BT Sport, from 2pm Sunday

Nice v Dijon BT Sport ESPN, 2pm
Nice have lost six in a row, though two of those fixtures were against Serie A flyers Lazio and another was at PSG.

That said, Nice clearly are struggling and have been leapfrogged in the table by Dijon, whose last away game saw them pick up three points at Metz. Dijon followed that by beating Nantes and can add at least a point to their total.

Marseille v Caen BT Sport 3, 4pm
Caen are massively improved and worth chancing to avoid defeat at a Marseille team who are in crisis after Patrice Evra kicked a supporter before their Europa League game on Thursday.

Marseille, facing a backlash over events on and off the pitch in Guimaraes, have been strong in Ligue 1 but Caen are fresh off a pair of 1-0 wins and the Normandy side are solid enough defensively.

Caen or draw double chance

Key stat
Caen's last eight competitive away games have produced just 11 goals.

St-Etienne v Lyon BT Sport 2, 8pm
The Derby Rhone-Alpes is always keenly contested and one that, according to recent history, is dominated by the home side.

St-Etienne have beaten Lyon on their last three visits, all wins to nil, though their bitter rivals arrive at the Geoffroy-Guichard in much better form. St-Etienne have won only two of their last nine games – against lowly Dijon and Metz – while Lyon are flying.

1pt 20-21 BoyleSports

Key stat
Lyon have won five in a row, scoring 15 goals.
