10 reasons to follow Ligue 1 this season

While the French Ligue 1 Championship has resumed its rights for several days, many football fans are wondering whether or not this season will be interesting to follow. On our side, we are convinced that it is. We explain why in ten reasons! No need to put on crampons, sitting in front of your television should be enough.

Messi is in France

He is one of the highest paid athletes the planet and inherently the best football player in history according to many observers. We are far from wanting to enter into the debate on this subject, but one thing remains indisputable: Lionel Messi is an attraction on his own. 

His arrival at Paris Saint-Germain is as unlikely as it is exciting for the entire French Championship and the Argentine genius alone presents one of the reasons to follow L1 this season.

Paris Saint-Germain are not invincible

With Messi in its ranks, PSG once again look great. However, the coronation of Lille last season, under the nose and beard of the Parisians, proved that the hegemony of the capital club over the national championship was not insurmountable.. At the heart of an XXL and historic season, LOSC won in front of Paris and paved the way for other clubs whose ambition is legitimate.

The supporters are back

After several difficult months, the stadiums in France are finding their most loyal supporters. A godsend for home teams and a return to normal which offers an additional spectacle to the various meetings played on each day of the championship.

There is a new diffuser

If it is for the moment too early to forget the fiasco around Mediapro and the Sino-Spanish investment fund, the arrival of Amazon Prime seems to be good news for the championship. Coupled with Canal +, a historical broadcaster, the American group is already very appreciated by its followers and subscribers without commitment. A force that should allow you to try the experience and subscribe to the trial offer, completely free!

Young stars appear

Often mocked abroad, Ligue 1 is a haunt of great talent. The latter do not hesitate to export themselves abroad as was the case recently with the nugget of Rennes, Eduardo Camavinga.

Ligue 1 is made exciting, also for its large number of talented young players whose development is interesting to follow.

The renewal of OM

The French championship can only be exciting with the strong presence of a club like Olympique de Marseille. Thanks to the dynamism introduced by the new president Longoria and the ambitions of coach Sampaoli, Marseille could once again play the leading roles in L1.

The renewal of Lyon

The arguments are the same on the side of OL, legendary club and most likely with Monaco in recent years, to overshadow the great PSG. The arrival on the Lyon bench of Peter Bosz should open a new era after the setbacks experienced by Rudi Garcia, especially in his relationship with the fans. 

A stronghold of French football, Lyon intends to shine this season. An idea appreciated by sports lover.

The matches are interesting

This will not surprise you, but it is not only the top clubs that drive the championship day after day. Several clubs like Reims, Brest or Clermont-Ferrand, the promoted, contribute to the spectacle of Ligue 1.

Teams go up

The idea is the same about it! Ligue 1 is a great reason to discover new faces and new teams. With the increase in power announced by Nice or Montpellier, the championship promises to be more and more homogeneous., to the delight of the followers.

The mythical clubs are there

Strasbourg or Lens? Clubs historically linked to the history of the first division are once again establishing themselves in the French Championship and such news is undoubtedly one of the reasons that should push you to watch Ligue 1 this season.
