Ligue 1 Predictions & Betting Tips

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.

How to bet on Ligue 1 today

Your first port of call should be our free bets page, where you can compare the best offers from all the top bookmakers.

It also pays to be informed before placing a bet – particularly on a high-profile league like this where so much information is available. This means it’s important you look at our Ligue 1 betting tips for all the best insight. If you’d also like previews for other competitions, make sure to check out our match predictions page.

All our French Ligue 1 betting predictions are fully researched and completely free but we can’t guarantee winners. Please gamble responsibly and visit our gambling guidelines for more information (18+).

When is the Ligue 1 season?

The French football season runs from August to May. You can find the live Ligue 1 table here, while it’s also worth taking a look at this season’s top scorers.

Which teams are in Ligue 1?

So, who’s in France’s top-flight? The following Ligue 1 teams are competing in the 2020-21 season:

Ajaccio, Angers, Bordeaux, Brest, Dijon FCO, Lens, Lille, Lorient, Lyon, Marseille, Metz, Monaco, Montpellier, Nantes, OGC Nice, PSG, Rennes, St-Etienne, Stade Reims, Strasbourg

Where to watch Ligue 1

UK viewers can watch French league and cup action on BT Sport. You can also catch matches on bet365’s live streaming service – a great way to follow the action and bet at the same time. For all this week’s matches, check out our Live Football on TV page.

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 on 9 titles and Nantes on 8.

Recent winners:

  • 2019-20: PSG
  • 2018-19: PSG
  • 2017-18: PSG
  • 2016-17: Monaco
  • 2015-16: PSG
