Betting on Ligue 1 football

Ligue 1 is quite a competitive division and one in which most teams believe they can beat each other. This means that you can usually find good odds on teams to win a match, with only Paris Saint-Germain usually having really low odds such as 1/10 to win matches. That is great news for when you are building an accumulator bet, with the competitive individual match odds leading to a better overall price. However, it also means that the games are a little closer, and upsets can occur which sees the favourites to win a match lose to a team ranked lower in the league table.

You will rarely see teams sitting back and ‘parking the bus’ in the French league, instead they will attack and try to win the game. This makes betting on the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score markets quite appealing in Ligue 1, and in the 2018/19 season the average percentage of games that finished with BTTS was 50% showing that statistically it happens one in every two matches.

In terms of which teams specifically were good to bet on in the BTTS market last season, statistically Strasbourg were the club who had the most games finishing with both teams scoring with it happening in 65.79% of their games. Rennes were also a good team to back in the both teams to score market with it happening in 63.16% of their games, as were Toulouse and Lyon with 22 of their 38 games last season seeing that outcome occur.

If it's your first time betting on the Ligue 1 then it could be worth using a free bet to get started. Alternatively, to find out more about the bookmaker sign up offers we have then read our bookmaker offers pages for a run down on all you need to know about them.

History of Ligue 1

Ligue 1 is the top division in French football, which was first founded in 1932. It was initially known as the ‘National’ before being renamed Division 1 after just one year. It remained known as Division 1 until 2002 when it was then completely rebranded and became known as Ligue 1.

The competition features 20 professional clubs each season, with one winning the league title, three gaining qualification to the UEFA Champions League and one qualifying for the Europa League. On top of that, two clubs are relegated automatically to Ligue 2 each season whilst the team finishing third from bottom must play a relegation play-off against the team who wins the promotion play-off semi-final in Ligue 2. Most of the clubs are based in France, although the presence of AS Monaco does mean that it is a cross-boarder competition.

The most successful club in Ligue 1 history is AS Saint-Étienne who have won the title on 10 occasions, although their last triumph came way back in the 1980/81 campaign. Marseille are just behind with nine titles, whilst Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Nantes all have eight. Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) hold the record for most successive titles, having won it seven times in a row between 2002 and 2008.

Ligue 1 is considered as one of the top domestic divisions in European football and is currently ranked fifth in UEFA’s coefficients behind Spain’s La Liga, England’s Premier League, Italy’s Serie A and the German Bundesliga.
