Sunday's Ligue 1 predictions including Metz vs. Paris Saint-Germain

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Ligue 1 fixtures, including Metz vs. Paris Saint-Germain.

Toulouse vs. Brest (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Brest still have a chance to automatically qualify for the Champions League group stage next season when they conclude the Ligue 1 campaign against Toulouse on Sunday at Stadium de Toulouse.

A 1-1 draw with Reims last Friday has Stade Brestois in fourth, behind Lille on goal difference, while Le Tef are currently 11th thanks to an impressive 3-1 triumph at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

We say: Toulouse 2-3 Brest

Brest have been involved in some wildly entertaining games of late away from home, and given that they still have something to play for, we expect to see them push the intensity and find a way to overcome a Toulouse side that have improved a lot in front of goal.

Lorient vs. Clermont (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Needing a lopsided victory and some help to avoid relegation, Lorient will host Clermont on Sunday at Stade du Moustoir in the final Ligue 1 matchday for both sides this season.

Heading into this encounter, Les Merlus are second from the bottom, three points below Metz in the relegation playoff battle following a 3-1 defeat versus Marseille, while Clermont are already assured of going down to Ligue 2 after narrowly losing 1-0 to Lyon.

We say: Lorient 2-1 Clermont

While Lorient have been poor defensively all season, they are going up against the worst attacking side in the league, which should enable them to be a little more aggressive going forward and find some openings.

Monaco vs. Nantes (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Monaco can match their longest winning run at Stade Louis II in Ligue 1 this season (four) when they welcome Nantes to the Principality in the final domestic encounter of the campaign for both sides.

Les Monegasques locked up second place with a 2-0 triumph over Montpellier HSC, while La Maison Jaune can finish no better than 14th, currently a point above Le Havre for that spot after suffering a 2-1 defeat versus Lille.

We say: Monaco 3-1 Nantes

All season long, Monaco have been finding the back of the net with ease, and even with nothing to play for, we expect them to maintain that consistency and end the season on a high note.

Lille vs. Nice (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Two teams whose fortunes have already been told clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Sunday evening in the final game of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season.

Lille have guaranteed their place in the top four, but will still be battling to secure automatic qualification to the Champions League, while Nice have ensured their place in next year's Europa League.

We say: Lille 2-1 Nice

Lille have been exceptional when playing in front of their home crowd throughout this season and with Nice having nothing left to play for, we believe the hosts will take the victory in this one.

Lyon vs. Strasbourg (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Europa Conference League-hunting Lyon take on bottom-half Strasbourg in the final game of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday evening.

The hosts are seventh in the table and only trail sixth-placed Lens on goal difference, leaving them needing to better Lens' result when they take on the visitors.

We say: Lyon 2-1 Strasbourg

Lyon's phenomenal form since the turn of the year has seen them pick up the most victories of any team in the division, and we expect that to continue with a win against a Strasbourg side who have struggled away from home.

Reims vs. Rennes (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Seeking consecutive victories for the first time in Ligue 1 this year, Reims will conclude their domestic campaign on Sunday when they welcome Rennes to Stade Auguste-Delaune.

A 1-0 victory over Marseille on matchday 33 moved Reims into the top half of the table, in 10th, two points below Stade Rennais, who played to a 1-1 draw with Lens last weekend.

We say: Reims 1-1 Rennes

With nothing to play for but pride there will not be any pressure on either side, so we expect there will be chances, but we anticipate the Reims backline will hold relatively firm like they have since Diawara took charge.

Lens vs. Montpellier (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Sixth-placed Lens are set to take on 12th-placed Montpellier HSC in the final game of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Sunday evening.

While the visitors have little left to play for, only able to move one up or down the table, the hosts will be fighting to secure qualification into European competition for next term.

We say: Lens 1-0 Montpellier HSC

Lens will have the motivation of European football being on the line in this game, while the visitors have nothing left to play for, leading us to believe the hosts will win this one.

One goal has been the difference in five of the last six victories for either side in this fixture, and we believe this one will follow the same pattern with a 1-0 win for Lens.

Le Havre vs. Marseille (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Le Havre are set to take on Marseille at Stade Oceane on Sunday evening in the final matchday of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season.

The hosts need just a point to guarantee their safety, while the visitors could sneak into the top six with a victory depending on results elsewhere.

We say: Le Havre 1-2 Marseille

While the visitors have struggled in their away matches this season, we believe that the added incentive of possible qualification for European football next season will help them get over the line with a victory here.

Metz vs. PSG (Sunday, 8.00pm)

Concluding a triumphant Ligue 1 campaign, Paris Saint-Germain head to the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Sunday to face a Metz side destined to scrap for survival in the relegation playoffs.

While Luis Enrique's men are sitting pretty on their throne, their hosts reside in 16th place in the end-of-season table but could still be automatically demoted if results go against them.

We say: Metz 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain

When Mikautadze is on song, Metz seldom have any problems making the net bulge and can certainly put a permeable PSG backline under the cosh, even if just for a brief moment.

However, even an Mbappe-less Parisiens unit should prove far too potent for their hosts in the final third themselves, as Enrique's men end the season on a high and leave Metz dancing with the demotion devil.
