PSG v Nantes (1st v 5th) Sat, 16:00 GMT Live on Betfair Live Video
Even if some of PSG's players are tired after international duty the Ligue 1 leaders should still be strong enough to run out comfortable winners over game but limited Nantes.
PSG have such tremendous strength in depth manager Unai Emery can afford to rotate some of his supposedly key men and still expect his side to win by two or three goals. The French capital outfit lined-up without Neymar at Angers a fortnight ago and it barely made a flicker of difference as PSG clinched a 5-0 victory.
Nantes are riding higher in the table than anybody expected and have lost just one of their last 10 Ligue 1 matches. Yet they've also had a gentle fixture list so this game's a considerable step-up in quality on anything they've faced before.
With PSG as short as 1.12 to get the 3pts the question is how to make the hosts pay at better odds. Backing Paris to win both halves is a good way to be on them near evens: with our selection, you need to treat the first- and second-halves as two separate 45-minute football matches, and for PSG win both of them.

Caen v Nice (7th v 15th) Sun, 14:00 GMT Live on BT Sport ESPN and Betfair Live Video
Nice are a risky bet in the sense they're languishing near the foot of the table but Lucien Favre's side have far greater quality than they've shown to date and ought to improve at some point.
The Riviera outfit have struggled to build on last season's unexpectedly high final position of 3rd, and the fact the club kept Favre against his will when Borussia Dortmund came calling for him in early summer has backfired. But the squad has top-six potential and the players should have a bit more confidence following their 1-0 win over Dijon in their last outing a fortnight ago.
Caen are 5pts and eight places above Nice in the standings but a deeply average side all over the pitch. Looking at the hosts line by line across the pitch, it's a surprise they've done so well, and without doubt they were lucky to win one or two of the games where they managed to pick up all 3pts.
Nice are 2.88 underdogs, meaning they're available odds-against on the Draw No Bet market. With this selection you'll get your stakes back if the game ends all-square and make a profit if Nice record their second away win of the campaign.

Bordeaux v Marseille (9th v 4th) Sun, 20:00 GMT Live on BT Sport 2 and Betfair Live Video
This is a game between two sides heading in opposite directions and a good opportunity to back an improving Marseille at a big price.
Bordeaux were widely tipped to challenge for a top-four place but their telegraphed build-up play plus a pure and simple shortage of scoring ability across their first-choice Starting XI has seen them drop down the table in recent weeks.
Jocelyn Gourvennec's side have drawn one and lost four of their last five fixtures so it's surprising they're clear 2.36 favourites to win this weekend.
Marseille go into the game in far better form as they're unbeaten across their last seven Ligue 1 outings (W5-D2-L0). They also have far greater depth and variety in attack, with Florian Thauvin, Konstantinos Mitroglu, Clinton N'Jie, Dimitri Payet, Lucas Ocampos and Valere Germain all vying for a place in the side.
With the hosts floundering and the visitors flying Marseille are the smart pick. Either back Rudi Garcia's side to win at 3.20 or Draw No Bet at 2.30.
