Ligue 1 is the top division of French football in which the 20 best teams in the country compete to be crowned national champions.
According to UEFA rankings, Ligue 1 is the fifth best league in Europe. That is reflected in the fact that, unlike the Premier League for example, only the top two teams in Ligue 1 are awarded a guaranteed place in the Champions League. The team that finishes in third place will have to make it through the playoff stage of qualifying while the fourth-placed team are entered into the third round of Europa League qualification. There is a great variety of Ligue 1 betting markets available with most bookmakers for your perusal. For a start, you can place outright bets on which teams are going to be relegated. There is always a good fight to avoid being in the bottom three places and dropping down to Ligue 2 after the 38 game season ends. The best bookies all offer Ligue 1 odds for each individual match, many of which are managed in-play. If you are looking for the best Ligue 1 odds at all times, we recommend you bookmark this page.
