French League 1 has always been in the shadow of the more successful Big Five championships. This is reflected not only in the popularity of the championship, but also in the successes of the French teams in the international arena. Representatives of France won the Champions League (Marcel in 2003) and 4 more teams reached the final of the tournament (the last time Monaco in 2004). Despite the fact that PSG in recent years is one of the main contenders for victory in the league, now and a gain the team stumbles in the early stages of the playoffs.
The level of teams in Ligue 1 is so low that in the table of UEFA coefficients the championship was able to outstrip even the Portuguese championship. For Ligue 1 to reach the level of the Premier League or the Bundesliga, it is necessary that the teams do not let their leaders go to more prestigious championships, but so far the championship of France is considered only as a donor for the representatives of the clubs of La Liga and the Premier League.
The bets on the games of Ligue 1 are good in that there are many sources of information on the Internet that will help you analyse the matches. Almost every team in League 1 has an uncomfortable opponent, even the wealthy from Paris. Therefore, it is always worth doing pre-match analysis and paying special attention to the last personal meetings. In general, it is worth noting that often the grandees lose points with the underdogs.
Another point in the odds for the French Championships is that the Champions League members play poorly in the championship before and after the Champions League. This is typical for all European grandees, playing in the Champions League, but in Ligue 1 this trend is most pronounced.
Also, League 1 is attractive in terms of odds and bet limits. Each major bookmaker gives a wide list to the matches of the championship. If you bet with several bookmakers, then the margin for the games of League 1 will be minimal. This season promises to be incredibly interesting.
