2020-2021 Ligue 1 Live Stream, Odds, and Predictions
Despite the last season of Ligue 1 coming to a halt earlier this year, the fresh season has kicked off well by the end of August. Disappointed by the COVID-19 spread in France, fans and players had to let go of the previous season where French Champions – PSG were still on top of the table. As it looks so, the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season is upon us and it can’t get any bigger than this.
The teams have benefited well from the summer transfer window and there’s a lot to expect this season. The French have risen amidst the pandemic threat still continuing to haunt lives and it will be one of the best seasons ever in the league’s history.
2020-21 Ligue 1
The 2020–21 Ligue 1 season also goes by the name – Ligue 1 Uber Eats for sponsorship reason. The French association football tournament within Ligue 1 inaugurates its 83rd season since establishment. Since the previous season was brought to a halt, the Ligue 1 had the advantage of starting off earlier than any other European leagues. The regular season started on 21st August 2020 and as per scheduled it goes on to end on 23rd May 2021.
This year Ligue 1 welcomes two newcomers to the French top flight football – Lorient and Lens were promoted from the 2019-20 Ligue 2. Despite the French court initially ruling that the season would proceed with 22 teams, the relegation of Amiens and Toulouse to the 2020-21 Ligue 2 was confirmed on 23rd June 2020, following a vote by the LFP.

The weekend is around the corner, so is the time to chill around and watch round 12 games of Ligue 1. Ageing like wine the soccer fest is enthralling through its thrillers, backing it up with meaty strategies for breakdowns and young players to enjoy the watch. Facing a minor slip, the capital club PSG are still the favourites for the crown and the cup. As newly emerging firepower in few of the clubs twists the results, expect a shuffle in the top tier as half of them contest with the minnows.
Strasbourg VS Rennes
Running goalless in their last three affairs, the Reds and Blacks will be eager to make up for it when they visit Strasbourg at Stade de la Meinau. Rennes’ form is questionable albeit lying in the top five at the France football fest. Bordeaux divvied their share of rocking the boat at Roazhon Park in the last outing 1-0, which followed the Parisians’ destruction 3-0 at Parc des Princes. La Meinau is in desperate need of a saviour, as the Racers are not only off the track but are about to be thrown out of the venue altogether. On the verge of relegation, Strasbourg has conceded almost double the times of goals scored and their clash against Lyon being their best fight in the competition. Spoiling Rennes’ party needs a ravenous audacity which the Racers are not cut out for.
Marseille VS Nantes
Marseille meets Nantes this Saturday at Stade Velodrome, after the postponement of the match against Nice, last Sunday, thanks to the pandemic. Staggering momentarily after their blazing start to the season, the Olympians are back in track with a three-match winning streak. Sharing the spoils with Lens 1-1 in their last game, Nantes are nearly beaten up by all the teams above them in the table. Christian Gourcuff has to rethink his strategy to bull the Canaries into the game. Marseille has fried far bigger fishes than Nantes before perhaps they will be dining exuberantly at Stade Velodrome this Saturday.
Paris SG VS Bordeaux
On round 12 of the Ligue 1, Paris SG hosts Bordeaux at Parc des Princes, regrouping from the slip at Stade Louis II. Mbappe’s brace in the first half was outperformed by Kevin’s goal making and Fabregas’s assist, leading to a 3-2 loss for PSG in their Monaco fixture, thanks to Diallo’s 84th-minute desperation. The trio’s return being a good thing for the Parisians, the midfield is still vastly hit by injuries. Avoiding red cards must be a serious consideration for Thomas Tuchel’s men, as all their three losses feature the reddies. The Girondins are seesawing with four losses, alongside the four wins distributed sparsely in their Ligue 1 table. They managed to defend their sole goal against Rennes last Friday, following their foregone fruitless attempts. Bordeaux will be just a blip on the radar for the skyrocketing Parisians who are on their route to greatness.
Lyon VS Reims
Reims go for the battle at Parc Olympique Lyonnais against Lyon this Sunday. The stakes are high for Reims and they are tiring out, a loss of 0-1 to Neims in the previous clash, battling relegation. Despite Boulaye Dia being a positive for the side, scoring consistently, Reims have a problem in defending them. Lyon, on the other hand, is a master in defence, sharing the spoils in some matches and restricting the opponents in some. The strikers are well versed in their roles assisting and finding leeway for goals all at the same time, for instance, bashing up Lorient 4-0. Rudi Garcia’s men will shoo the visitors away and it will be a high-scoring affair in all likelihood.
Monaco VS Nimes
Pulling off a stunner in their last game at home, Monaco will face Nimes again at Stade Louis II, this Sunday. Fabregas’ penalty put an end to the contest against the world-class PSG. Playing for the Bundesliga till the last season, Kevin Volland stays true to his game and covered Ben Yedder’s absence neatly so far. Just four points behind the defending champions, Monaco’s Niko Kovac understands that the season is still very long. Contrarily, Nimes is sleeping deadbeat at the bottom of the table. Winning happens once in a blue moon for Nimes, their last victory against Reims 0-1 being a consolation. Though a dull affair for a Sunday, this win will help Monaco stay in the top of the table. As for the Nimes, sharing the spoils is possible if they sustain.
St. Etienne VS Lille
St. Etienne plays host to Lille on Sunday at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in the round 12 of Ligue 1. Bamba and Yilmaz are seeing the back of the net for Lille, and Lille’s defence is solid compared to their peers. Christophe Galtier would be little or not worried at all for this affair against St. Etienne. The latter is sinking deep in the table and is fighting relegation. Losing seven matches in a row including their last visit to Brest, the Saints won’t be willing to take any more beating. It is fair to reckon that Claude Puel would have tested his players at Stade Francis-Le Ble, in preparation for this top table clash. Anyhow the Saints will not be able to move in any direction towards success, as the visitors will snatch it away.
