Match Previews & Tips/

Ligue 1 is the top tier of professional football in France and out of all of the European leagues it continues to be one of the most competitive. While the likes of Lyon and Paris St Germain have enjoyed spells of dominance over the years, no team has truly been a force throughout its history because the most successful team in the history of Ligue 1 since it turned professional in 1932 is St Etienne with 10 title successes.

While the likes of Paris St Germain, Monaco and Lyon have been setting the standard in recent years, there always tends to be a team that that causes a few surprises with Nice being that outfit in 2016/17. If their momentum had not stalled late in the season, they could have perhaps pulled off a sensational title success by beating Monaco and PSG to the silverware.

So who will be challenging for the title this time around? You can see for yourself because Ligue 1 remains one of the jewels in bet365’s live streaming crown.

LIGUE 1 HISTORY

Ligue 1 first turned professional in 1932 and since that time no less than 16 teams have been crowned champions of European football – making it one of the most competitive competitions in all of football.

While Lyon and Paris St Germain have enjoyed spells of dominance since 2000, winning seven straight titles and four straight titles respectively, no team has truly dominated the French game for a long period of time because only one club has managed to reach double figures when it comes to French titles won. That side is St Etienne with 10, but they have not been crowned kings of French football since the 1980/81 season.

Marseille are next up with nine but they would share the record if they had not been stripped of the 1992/93 title after being found guilty of bribery. That means they are second all-time with nine and their title drought now stands at seven years, while they have not finished inside the top three since finishing second in 2012/13.

If Monaco are successful this season they will go second all-time with nine Ligue 1 titles, but the defending champions have never managed to win back-to-back Ligue 1 titles in their history and they will face a stern test from a Paris St Germain outfit who will be looking to reclaim the trophy after their four-season streak was halted by the side from the principality last season.

PSG are six-time winners of Ligue 1, but it took the arrival of mega-rich owners to kick-start the club because they had only won two titles prior to the arrival of Oryx Qatar Sports Investments in 2011.
