Payet a difference-maker for Marseille

French international Dimitri Payet is a key player for Marseille
1 of 1

BT Sport, from 2pm Sunday

Rennes v Nice BT Sport ESPN, 2pm
Rennes are on a rough run and, while they are definitely better than their recent results suggest, it is difficult to trust a team with one win in 11 matches.

That success came against lower-league Jeanne d'Arc in the French Cup and you need to go back to early December for their last success in Ligue 1. Nice, boosted by Wednesday's win over
St-Etienne, look a value bet to gain a positive result.

Recommendation
Nice draw no bet
1pt 19-20 BoyleSports, Coral, Hills

Key stat
Rennes have not won in eight Ligue 1 games


St-Etienne v Lorient BT Sport 2, 4pm
This is unlikely to be a classic and a game featuring few goals looks to be the best bet as St-Etienne get ready for their massive Europa League tie against Manchester United on Thursday.

Rock-bottom Lorient finally won away in their last trip at Lille but have scored only 12 goals in as many Ligue 1 road encounters, while St-Etienne's 12 home games have produced a total of 20 goals.

Recommendation
One or both teams not to score

Key stat
Only one of St-Etienne's last 12 home games has featured over 2.5 goals


Nantes v Marseille BT Sport 3, 8pm
Marseille are on the rise with six wins in their last nine Ligue 1 fixtures and January signing Dimitri Payet opened his account with a trademark free kick in Wednesday's 2-0 success over Guingamp.

Payet should do serious damage on his return to France and Nantes, who started the weekend only two points above the drop, are likely to be outclassed by OM.   

Recommendation
Marseille
1pt 7-5 Betway
