Metz – Paris Saint.Germain (22:00)

In the shadow of Messi’s spare storm and the MRI scan that showed he was injured in the knee, the French league leader will try to maintain the perfect balance in an edge meeting on the pitch of the table lock that has not yet won this season. PSG have beaten Metz in all of their last 11 meetings in all competitions, with the last loss being 1.0 in May 2006. Mauro Icardi may start after deciding the game against Lyon in extra time, Ashraf Hakimi will return to 11 and Nono Mendes may also open.

Angers – Marseille (22:00)

Jorge Sampaoli’s team started the season excellently, is in second place and hopes to remain undefeated even after visiting Stade Raymond Coupe, where they lost last season for the first time in its history. Angers also experienced an impressive season opener, until they were defeated 4.1 by Nantes at home on Sunday. Arkadyush Milik, who has been absent for more than four months, is expected to return to the squad for the next game against Lance and in the meantime will continue to fill his place for the surprising Bamba Dying, who has scored three goals in the last two rounds.

Lorraine – Nice (22:00)

The team with the second highest budget in League 1 absorbed first goals in the derby against Monaco (2: 2) but is still unbeaten and in its previous two away games has won at zero (0: 4 at night and 0: 2 in Nantes). Lorraine, on the other hand, shows a perfect home balance (impressive wins over Monaco and Lille) and if you add up last season then it is in a streak of six home wins in the league, but it has not beaten Nice as a host in this frame since November 2013. Caspar Dolberg was injured on Sunday and will be absent. His place will be filled by Andy Delor.

Lil – Reims (20:00)

The French champions, who last season displayed the best defense in the top five leagues (only 23 mandatory goals) have already taken 12 balls off the net in six rounds and recorded three losses. Talks about the replacement of coach Joslan Gurbank have already begun, and to reassure them he must win against Oscar Garcia’s team. Reims, who has scored seven points so far, has lost to Lille twice last season and has not beaten her away since January 2014. The Portuguese sack will be missing for the champion due to yellow cards, compatriot Renato Sanchez is injured and so is Jonathan Bamba.
