Ligue 1 Predictions FAQs

You’re in safe hands. Before making each Ligue 1 prediction our experts analyse statistics, look at potential angles and compare them with bookmaker odds. It’s hard to be better informed!

Classy, high-quality, and now boasting one of the world’s best teams in PSG, French football is on the rise. Having produced much of the squad that won the 2018 World Cup, Ligue 1 is once again a force in Europe. There’s no better time to ride the wave and enjoy a bet on ‘le football’.

Right, let’s dive in with your questions.

When do you post your predictions?

Our Ligue 1 match previews cover every single game and are posted two to three days before each game kicks off. For midweek matches, predictions will be available from Monday evening. By posting our Ligue 1 tips early, we make sure we get the best value from the bookmakers while also giving you plenty of time to digest our predictions.

What’s the playing style like in France?

French football is in a period of transition, with no clear style of play prevalent at the moment. Traditionally, the league was fairly fast-paced, but physicality and technique have since been added into the mix. Nowadays we’re seeing more of a combative side to Ligue 1, with defensive aggression certainly on the rise.  

Who has won the most Ligue 1 titles?

Since its creation in 1893, Marseille and Saint-Etienne have won the most French league titles with 10 wins each. They are followed by PSG and Nantes on 8 wins.

Recent winners:

  • 2018-19: PSG
  • 2017-18: PSG
  • 2016-17: Monaco
  • 2015-16: PSG
  • 2014-15: PSG
