Marseille could be distracted for visit of hot Montpellier

Lyon victory at rock-bottom Metz may not be clearcut

Marseille may be more focused on their close Europa League tie with Leipzig
1 of 1

BT Sport, from 4pm Sunday

Metz v Lyon BT Sport ESPN, 4pm
Lyon are a short price at Metz but the hosts are cut adrift at the bottom of Ligue 1 and it's hard to see anything other than a win for the visitors.

A 3-2 victory over Marseille last month kept Lyon in the hunt for a top-three spot, so they have still got plenty to play for, but their away form is mixed and they might only edge to victory.

Joe Champion's recommendation
Lyon to win by one goal
1pt 11-4 BoyleSports

Key stat
Nine of Lyon's last ten away wins in all competitions have been by a one-goal margin.

Marseille v Montpellier BT Sport 3, 8pm
Marseille’s 1-0 Europa League defeat at Leipzig means the tie is finely poised for the return leg and they may not be fully focused for a league tussle with in-form Montpellier.

The visitors are Ligue 1’s draw specialists having shared the spoils 15 times this season. Montpellier have picked up points at Monaco and Lyon and could stall a Marseille side with their attention elsewhere.

Aaron Ashley's recommendation
Draw
1pt 16-5 Hills

Key stat
Montpellier are unbeaten in eight league games.
