Before the round - trends on French Ligue 1 (19-20/09/2020)

4th round of the French Ligue 1 will kick in this weekend and the temporary league leaders are Stade Rennais, who on Saturday will face the second AS Monaco in an interesting clash for the top.

 

Stade Rennais - AS Monaco

 

As we mentioned, Stade Rennais will face AS Monaco in a tense fight for important three points, as both teams are striving to remain undefeated in the league.

These two sides hardly decide a winner in their most recent meetings, so a draw seems mostly predictable.

  • Stade Rennais are on a run of 6 consecutive undefeated matches in their domestic league.
  • In their 11 most recent home games of Ligue 1, Stade Rennais have won 9 of them.
  • Both teams scored in 9 of Stade Rennais's last 10 league games against AS Monaco.
  • In 7 of AS Monaco's last 9 away Ligue 1 matches both teams scored.
  • Prediction: Draw @ 3.40

 

RC Lens - Girondins Bordeaux

 

One team who has been rather surprising is RC Lens, having recorded wins over PSG and FC Lorient in their 2 most recent matches.

On Saturday they will face Girondins Bordeaux - another team, whose form has been rather prominent.

  • RC Lens have won 2 of their 3 most recent matches in Ligue 1.
  • For Girondins Bordeaux there have been 4 draws in 5 matches in Ligue 1.
  • Girondins Bordeaux have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 matches in Ligue 1.
  • There are no losses for Girondins Bordeaux in 10 of their most recent 11 games (Ligue 1).
  • Prediction: Draw @ 3.20

 

FC Metz - Stade Reims

 

Next, we have a match between two teams, who have been playing in a rather disappointing way.

That being said, FC Metz and Stade Reims will probably share the points in an low - scoring match.

  • FC Metz have failed to score a goal in 4 of their last 6 Ligue 1 games.
  • In 5 of FC Metz's last 6 Ligue 1 games have been scored under 2.5 goals.
  • Stade Reims's performance has been disappointing of late, as they have won just 1 of their 8 most recent away Ligue 1 clashes.
  • In their 6 most recent matches of Ligue 1, Stade Reims have achieved 3 draws.
  • Prediction: Draw @ 2.95

 

Montpellier HSC - Angers SCO

 

Last season we saw a quite significant improvement in Angers SCO's form, who showed great resistance to the big names in the French Ligue 1.

They started this season with two wins and a loss, which gives us expectations that the three points against Montpellier HSC might end in the away side's hands.

  • Montpellier HSC are on a run of 11 wins in their last 14 home league games.
  • A period of 14 straight home games without a loss at half time marks the Ligue 1 campaign of Montpellier HSC.
  • Angers are undefeated in 6 of their last 7 encounters with Montpellier HSC in Ligue 1.
  • Angers SCO have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 Ligue 1 games.
  • Prediction: Angers SCO @ 3.60
