Matchday 10 of Ligue 1 begian in earnest on Friday night as Lyon ended a run of four straight league losses - their worst run since 1991 - but could only draw 1-1 with Toulouse after taking a second-minute lead as the spotlight remains on home manager Peter Bosz's position.

Reigning champions and current table-toppers Paris Saint-Germain travel to Reims on Saturday evening, and a hotly anticipated derby between Lille and Lens rounds things off on Sunday. 

Let's get into the main talking points of another weekend sure to produce its fair share of thrills and spills, and read on for all the details on how to watch BT Sport's five televised games. 

Can Balogun step up against PSG?

Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun is enjoying a season to remember with Reims, bagging his sixth goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw against Troyes last weekend. 

While Oscar Garcia's men are languishing in the bottom four, the 21-year-old is starting to deliver on the huge potential seen in him by the Gunners' academy, following a frustrating spell at Middlesbrough earlier this year. 

Another strike this Saturday against PSG would certainly make more people sit up and take notice, with Christophe Galtier's men possessing the only two players to have outscored Balogun during his time in France: Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. 

A current England U21 international, Balogun could still declare for the USA in time for this year's World Cup in Qatar. Watch this space.

Lorient on cusp of record-breaking run

Unfashionable Lorient, more accustomed to fighting relegation than challenging for Europe, are the form team in Ligue 1 and incredibly sit third going into the weekend, just three points behind PSG. 

The Brittany-based side have won their last five matches, the latest of which saw them defeat Lille late on while down to 10 men. 

One more victory - away at 18th-placed Brest on Sunday - would see Regis Le Bris' men break the club record for most consecutive top-flight wins, set in 2013.

Much of that success has been built on an enterprising attack that has only been outscored by - you guessed it - PSG, with Nigeria striker Terem Moffi on six goals from nine games and young winger Dango Ouattara proving one of the most influential players in the league this term.

Derby du Nord won't leave you bored

There has been a power shift in northern France. 

Last season was the first time that Lens had done the double over Lille in 40 years as they finished above their rivals for the first time since 2007.

Franck Haise's men have continued that supremacy this season, currently sitting fourth as one of three unbeaten teams in the division while possessing the third-best defence in Ligue 1 behind PSG and second-placed Marseille.

Lille meanwhile have been very hit and miss so far under new boss Paulo Fonseca, but they are a neutral's dream. Every single game of theirs in 2022/23 has seen both teams score.
