France won the World Cup for the second time in 2018 and many of that successful squad play their football in Ligue 1. The French top tier was first put in place in 1930 while a rebrand came along to give the division a new name in 2002.
The Team to Beat
20 teams assemble at the start of the season with the title race and European places up for grabs while those at the bottom of the table are involved in the desperate battle to avoid relegation. Unibet has a series of outright betting markets available for Ligue 1 and, with the support of live streaming from Unibet TV, you can catch the best of the action as it unfolds.
Recent Ligue 1 campaigns have been dominated by the mighty Paris St-Germain. With world class players such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in their ranks, PSG claimed their ninth top flight title at the end of the 2019/20 campaign and they are closing in on St Etienne’s record of ten trophies.
That victory in 2019/20 made it seven titles in eight seasons for PSG but, those who feel there is little interest in the championship markets, have alternatives to consider. The top three sides in Ligue 1 will be playing Champions League football in the upcoming season and there are Europa League slots available for those who finish in fourth and fifth.
At the opposite end of that table, the bottom two sides will head straight down to Ligue 2. Title deciders, relegation battles and games with high significance in terms of European places can all be enjoyed via Unibet TV’s live stream.
Paris St-Germain’s recent dominance has been aided by their superstar squad which carries some of the biggest names in the game. Along with Neymar and Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Thiago Silva and Mauro Icardi helped PSG to their ninth top flight title in 2019/20.
PSG don’t have the monopoly on top class talent and in previous seasons, some of the world’s best have been employed in Ligue 1. Dimitar Berbatov, Jurgen Klinsmann and Chris Waddle are among foreign players to have lined up with or against the likes of Hugo Lloris, Thierry Henry, Zinedine Zidane and Michel Platini.
As reigning world champions, French football has great strength in depth throughout the league and that’s what makes this division one of the most entertaining in Europe. Viewers of Unibet TV know just how thrilling Ligue 1 can be and it remains one of the most popular areas of our live streaming service.
