Nice v Angers (18:00 BST Friday)
Nice stumbled out of the blocks as they lost three of their first four league games, but Lucien Favre’s side appear to have finally found their feet by winning their last three matches in all competitions, a run that includes a 4-0 demolition of champions Monaco a couple of weeks ago. They need to keep this run going though as they chase Paris St Germain and Monaco, and they should do that by taking three points from Friday night’s visit of and Angers side that are winless in their last four matches.
Lille v Monaco (19:45 BST Friday)
For a team that has been raided of so much of its title-winning talent during the summer transfer window, Monaco have made an impressive start to the season with five wins from their first six games. The recent 4-0 defeat at Nice was certainly a sore one, but they rebounded from that with a comfortable 3-0 win over Strasbourg last weekend and that means they are still hot on the heels of early pace-setters Paris St Germain. However, it is not unreal to think that PSG will not drop many points this season so Monaco have to keep racking up the victories, and I expect them to notch another on Friday night. They are visiting a Lille side that have not won a league game since the opening day, picking up just two points from their last five outings.

Montpellier v Paris St Germain (16:00 BST Saturday)
Six games, six wins for Paris St Germain and that is no real surprise having seen the club spend obscene money in the summer transfer window to land Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Couple that with Monaco’s loss of talent and the championship really is PSG’s for the taking – they just have to live up to expectations. They have done that so far by collecting a maximum haul of 18 points, out-scoring their opponents 21-3, and there is absolutely no way that I am going to go against them making it seven wins from seven league games here. Montpellier were winners last weekend, but that was their first win since the opening day and the form they in spells trouble for a meeting with PSG.
Lyon v Dijon (19:00 BST Saturday)
Lyon go into Saturday’s match on the back of their first defeat of the season – a 2-0 loss at PSG – and they have now managed to win only one of their last five competitive fixtures. If they want to challenge for a top-three finish and secure a place in next season’s Champions League they are going to have to improve their form quickly, so it is probably good timing for them that their next outing is against a Dijon team that have lost four of their first six Ligue 1 games. Lyon should get back to winning ways this weekend.

St Etienne v Rennes (14:00 BST Sunday)
St Etienne’s quest for Champions League football has got off to a solid start thanks to four wins from their first six games, with their sole defeat coming away to title favourites Paris St Germain. A rock solid defence is once again playing a key role for Les Verts, who have kept a clean sheet in each of their four victories, and it should play a decisive part in them collecting three more points from this Sunday’s visit of Rennes, who have managed only one win from their first six Ligue 1 outings.
Marseille v Toulouse (20:00 BST Sunday)
Convincing defeats to Monaco and Rennes either side of the international break left Marseille a club in crisis – even at this early stage of the season – but they have steadied the ship over the past couple of weeks with a Europa League win over Konyaspor and a Ligue 1 victory at Amiens, and they will be eager to keep this winning run going on Sunday night. Providing the opposition are a Toulouse side that were beaten by Bordeaux last time out and have now won just one of their last four games, while taking just one point from three away games so far this season. This is a decent fixture for L’OM to have as they try to build up some momentum, and I believe they will make it three wins on the bounce.
