BT Sport 3, from 2pm Sunday

Strasbourg v St-Etienne 2pm
Strasbourg started their league campaign with an impressive 2-0 win at Bordeaux and they can frustrate another of Ligue 1's big teams on home soil.

Two of the last three meetings between St-Etienne and Strasbourg have ended as draws and the hosts beat top-six sides Paris St-Germain, Lyon and Rennes at the Stade de la Meinau last term.

Strasbourg or draw double chance

Toulouse v Bordeaux 4pm
Toulouse went into this season with defensive concerns following the loss of Issa Diop and goalkeeper Alban Lafont this summer and their fears were realised in a 4-0 capitulation away to Marseille last week.

Bordeaux have won three of their last four meetings with Toulouse and can bounce back from their opening-day defeat despite chaos behind the scenes with manager Gus Poyet sacked this week.

2pts 23-10 bet365, Betfair

Key stat
Bordeaux finished seventh in Ligue 1's away table in 2017-18.

Nimes v Marseille 8pm
Marseille bolstered their defence with the addition of Duje Caleta-Car this summer and they kept a clean sheet in their 4-0 hammering of Toulouse on the opening day.

The visitors lost just three away games in Ligue 1 last term and can consign newly-promoted Nimes to a first defeat of the season.

Marseille to win to nil
1pt 12-5 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Marseille lost just one of their final nine away games in the league last season.
