The relegation battle is heating up in Ligue 1 and there are some huge six-pointers to look forward to this coming weekend.
<div><h2>Lille v Angers</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Lille v Angers"><strong>Date: Saturday, May 18, at 8pm</strong></a></p><p><strong>Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy</strong></p><p>Lille can wrap up second place in Ligue 1 with a result against Angers on Saturday evening and they are more they capable of pulling it off. Christophe Galtier’s men are on a fine run of from and they beat Bordeaux 1-0 last time out to maintain a six-point lead over third place Lyon. We are now in the penultimate round of fixtures and they are almost assured of an automatic place in next season’s Champions League. They have won 12 of 18 games at Stade Pierre-Mauroy thus far. They did, however, lose 1-0 away at Angers earlier this season, and they will be keen for revenge in this match against a side languishing in 13<sup>th</sup> place in the table.</p><p><a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Betway"><em><strong>Tip: Lille to win and under 4.5 goals at 7/8 (1.88) with Betway</strong></em></a></p><h2>Montpellier v Nantes</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Montpellier v Nantes"><strong>Date: Saturday, May 18, at 8pm</strong></a></p><p><strong>Venue: La Mosson</strong></p><p>Montpellier pulled off a magnificent victory away at Saint Etienne at the weekend and that should give them plenty of confidence ahead of this game. Saint Etienne were the form team in Ligue 1, having won four on the bounce, but Montpellier battled to an impressive win courtesy of Gaetan Labord’s second-half strike. That result leaves them four points behind Jean-Louis Gasset’s men with two games to play, and they could yet sneak into next season’s Europa League. They are unbeaten in five games now, but Nantes are also in fine form, having not lost in six matches. However, Montpellier have home advantage and they were excellent against Saint-Etienne last time out, so the home win looks attractive here.</p><p><a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Betfair"><em><strong>Tip: Montpellier to win at 17/20 (1.85) with Betfair</strong></em></a></p><h2>Monaco v Amiens</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Monaco v Amiens"><strong>Date: Saturday, May 18, at 8pm</strong></a></p><p><strong>Venue: Stade Louis II</strong></p><p>Monaco have taken just two points from their last five games and that dreadful form has plunged them right back into relegation danger. They are now 17<sup>th</sup> and only above 18<sup>th</sup> placed Caen by virtue of goal difference. Caen have taken 10 points from their last five games, but now they must face high-flying Lyon, so this gives Monaco a great opportunity to take a giant stride towards safety. If they win this game, they will leapfrog 16<sup>th</sup> placed Amiens in the table and they would be highly likely to beat the drop. Amiens have a dreadful away record, with 10 defeats from 18 games on the road, but Monaco have the league’s worst home record. Amiens have also proven remarkably stubborn of late, drawing with Strasbourg, Montpellier and Toulouse in their last three games. Yet Monaco have vastly superior individual players, and the likes of Aleksandr Golovin, Andre Silva, Gelson Martins and Radamel Falcao have far too much quality to be in this situation.</p><p><a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power"><em><strong>Tip: Monaco and under 4.5 goals at even money (2.0) with Paddy Power</strong></em></a></p><h2>PSG v Dijon</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="PSG v Dijon"><strong>Date: Saturday, May 18, at 8pm</strong></a></p><p><strong>Venue: Parc des Princes</strong></p><p>PSG wrapped up the title weeks ago and they have nothing left to play for in the league. They have taken a foot off the pedal since then, and their form in general has been poor of late. They have won just two of their last eight matches and they suffered a surprise defeat to Rennes in the cup final. The players are already thinking about their summer holidays and they have not kept a clean sheet in seven games. That could be good news for 19<sup>th</sup> placed Dijon, who desperately need a win to reignite their survival bid. They are two points behind Monaco after losing consecutive matches against Caen and Nantes, and they are staring relegation in the face. However, Dijon have lost two-thirds of their away games so far this season and PSG would only require minimal effort to win this game.</p><p>Tip: PSG to win and both teams to score at 29/20 (2.45) with Coral</p></div>
