We are now approaching the business end of the Ligue 1 season and there is plenty of value on offer for punters looking at this weekend's games.

The hosts have lost four and drawn two of their last six games, making them the worst team in the league at present. They have been poor at home all season, with six defeats in 13 games, and that abysmal form has left them marooned in the relegation zone. PSG will have one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Man Utd, so they may rest a couple of players, but they have a deep squad and whoever plays should be far too good for Caen. They lead Man Utd 2-0 on aggregate and they have a four day rest period between games, so they will be keen to beat Caen and maintain the winning streak in anticipation of the Red Devils’ visit.</p><p><strong>Tip: </strong>PSG half-time / full-time at 19/20 (1.95) with <a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07" target="_blank">Ladbrokes</a> and <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank">Coral</a></p><h2>Angers v Monaco</h2><p>The Monaco hierarchy must be delighted with their decision to ditch Thierry Henry and bring back experienced manager Leonardo Jardim. He has taken 10 points from a possible 12 since returning to the club, dragging the team out of the relegation zone and up to the giddy heights of 16<sup>th</sup> in the table. Monaco were hugely impressive in their 2-0 win over Lyon last time out, and that should give them huge confidence as they approach this match against Angers. Stéphane Moulin’s men are 12<sup>th</sup> in the table, with a decent home record of late, but they have lost four of their last six games.</p><p><strong>Tip: </strong>Monaco to win at 13/10 (2.30) with <a href=";a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3" target="_blank">Boyle Sports</a> and <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a" target="_blank">Unibet</a>, or Monaco draw no bet at 16/25 (1.64) with Marathon</p><h2>Lille v Dijon</h2><p>It is risky business betting on Lille at the moment, after they drew their last two games. They had been in magnificent form, and a trip to Strasbourg and a home clash with Montpellier could easily have yielded six points, but they underwhelmed in attack and had to make do with two. Yet they now have an excellent opportunity to return to winning ways against Dijon, who have been anything but mustard of late. They are on a four-game losing streak and they have failed to score in their last three games, so a home win looks entirely probable here. Lille have won eight of 13 at home this season, while Dijon have lost eight of 13 away from home, which is why they are second from bottom in the table and in grave danger of relegation.</p><p><strong>Tip:</strong> Lille and under 4.5 goals at 5/6 with Ladbrokes and Coral</p><h2>Marseille v St Etienne</h2><p>There has been a significant amount of investment in this Marseille team in recent transfer windows, and the owners will be displeased to see the club below St Etienne in the Ligue 1 table. Yet they can leapfrog Jean-Louis Gasset’s team into fourth place if they pick up a home win this weekend and they should be able to achieve that. St Etienne have been exceptional at home this season, second only to PSG, but they are only 13<sup>th</sup> in away form, having lost five of 13 on their travels. Marseille’s defence has been solid at home, conceding a mere nine goals in 12 games, and that should be enough to propel them to a narrow victory in this match.</p><p><strong>Tip:</strong> Marseille to win at 10/11 (1.91) with <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank">Bet365</a> and 19/20 (1.95) with Marathon</p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
