Putting into consideration the home side’s impressive form on their patch this term, with just four losses so far, Bet365 tips them at odds of (1.44) as clear favourites.

Les Dogues are on a three-game winning streak which puts them four points clear of danger. A result would ensure they don't go dowm to Ligue 2. They are henced chalked up at (7.50) for a big victory.

Two of both outfits’ last seven outings has ended all square. A similar result in this match is priced at a whopping (4.20).

Jean-Louis Gasset’s men have shipped in goals in six of their last seven clashes on their turf in the top-flight and the fact that the visitors have netted six times in their last seven away fixtures should make this encounter thrilling.

Therefore, owing to the weak defense line of the home side, they can be backed not to keep a clean sheet here at odds of (1.66).
