Ligue 1 is the first division in France, with some of the most exciting sports teams in the world. You can place sports bets on teams such as Bordeaux, Troyes, Nice, Montpellier, Reims and of course, PSG! Every year, twenty of the leading teams in the country fight it out for the Ligue 1 title. Meanwhile, the three teams that come bottom of the table are relegated to Ligue 2 - the second-tier French league.
Here at 888 Sport, we also offer competitive Ligue 2 betting odds as well as other major French football events and competitions. You can find markets on the Coupe de France, which is the French equivalent to the English Football League's FA Cup. On 19 May 2021, Paris St Germain took no prisoners and surprised no one when they beat Monaco 2-0 in the cup final match, claiming their 14th cup title. It was a convincing win and just proved their overall dominance in French football.
Since its inception, there have been over 20 different clubs that have managed to lift the league trophy, with the most successful team in history being Saint-Etienne having won the title ten times. However, their success came to a staggering halt at the start of the 1980s. Since this time, it has been Marseille, PSG and Lyon that has dominated the league - with 9 wins apiece for the former two, and 7 for the latter. However, PSG is the dominant force now and will likely overtake in the next few years. They have only lost the title twice since 2012 - in 2016-17 to Monaco and last year's title which was won by Lille.
But the big question is - can PSG get another win to overtake Marseille and equal Saint Etienne? Well, Paris Saint-Germain is way ahead in terms of betting odds favourites - at 1/5. Following them is Lyon with odds of 8/1 and Lille comes in third at 14/1. So, if our latest betting odds are correct, Paris Saint Germain will be making history this year.
As mentioned above, despite Paris Saint Germain having been the dominant force in Ligue 1, they suffered a stumble last season after coming second to Lille. Although PSG managed to get more wins on the table than Lille - 26 compared to 24, it was the draws and losses that made the difference, with PSG suffering 8 losses compared to Lille's 3 losses. It couldn't have been any closer though, with just one point difference, 83 to 82 - and PSG way ahead on goal difference. In third place was Monaco who managed a respectable 78 points. All these three will be competing in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Lyon fell short of the mark by just two points and secured fourth place, which is good enough to see them compete in the Europa League.
At the other end of the table, Nimes and Dijon hit the end of the road in Ligue 1 for now and have both been relegated to Ligue 2. Troyes will be taking their place back in France's first-tier after a three-year absence and Clermont will be taking the second spot for the first time in their history.

When you're putting a bet on the outright winner, it's hard to ignore PSG, but it's also impossible to find any value there either, with odds of 1/5. There's not much to be made with that bet. Lille, however, is quite a decent proposition at 14/1. They defied the odds last season and came second the year before. It's definitely worth looking at this team, especially if you take them on in the 'without PSG' betting market.
When looking at the Ligue 1 lead goalscorer, most people will be putting their money on a Kylian Mbappe bet. He may have had a disastrous Euro campaign, but his ability to score at club level is difficult to dispute. He won last year with 27 goals, beating Memphis Depay and Wissam Ben Yedder by 7 goals. It wouldn't be surprising if this was yet another successful year for the young French player.
PSG has been named Ligue 1 winner nine times to date and are joint second in the all-time winner table with Marseille - one behind St Etienne. They are favourites to win this season to make them joint all-time winners.
For each Ligue 1 match, there will be a range of odds - pre-match and in-play. You can bet on match winner, BTTS, goalscorer, specials like red cards and yellow cards, corners, next goal, Asian handicaps and more. We have a whole range of competitive odds and markets for every Ligue 1 match.
