Caen v Nice BT Sport ESPN, 2pm
Nice have scored only one goal in five away games so the can ill-afford to be without suspended top scorer Mario Balotelli.

That said, goals at the Stade Michel d’Ornano are scarce this season – just nine in six matches – and Caen can hardly be buzzing after their 5-0 dismantling by Marseille.

Lyon v Montpellier BT Sport 3, 4pm
Montpellier’s five away games have produced just eight goals, with a 1-1 draw at Monaco the pick of their road results.

So free-scoring Lyon, who have scored at least two in eight of their last nine, are going to have to be at their sharpest to find a way past Benjamin Lecomte in the visitors’ net.

Montpellier +1.25 on Asian handicap

Key stat
Montpellier’s 12 matches have produced just 17 goals.

Bordeaux v Marseille BT Sport 2, 8pm
After going unbeaten in their first seven, Les Girondins have taken just one point from their last five and have tumbled into mid-division.

Marseille’s away form domestically is excellent – four wins in six – but this promises to be a tight affair and a fifth successive draw between these teams is on the cards.

1pt 12-5 general

Key stat
Bordeaux have failed to score in their last three matches.
