Ligue 1 Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2020-21
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.

Weather in Ligue 1 is turning hot despite the hiver prevailing in France. The Monacans bested the Parisians, Lyon don’t have much to worry about this week. Lille are out of the Europa League. French action will quench the football hunger of the fans on Matchday 27, Bon Appetit!
Dijon vs Paris SG
Dijon and Paris SG lock horns at Stade Gaston Gerard on Matchday 27 of Ligue 1. The Parisians couldn’t celebrate their victory over Barcelona last week, Monaco stunned them at Parc des Princes 0-2. Kylian Mbappe slotted a hat-trick at Camp Nou, Monaco managed a clean-sheet victory by man- marking Mbappe. Mauricio Pochettino is building the squad well though he will take some time to adjust for the French league. Injuries to Neymar and Angel di Maria hold back the Parisians to some limit. The French clubs have severely thrashed Dijon, the minnows are lying deadbeat at the bottom with just two wins to their name. On a seven-game losing streak, the light is beyond their scope. Moussa Konate and Mama Balde have 10 goals between them. David Linares’ men will try to maintain their dignity but the Parisians won’t allow.
Lille vs Strasbourg
Ajax escorted Lille through the way out in Europa League, triumphing in both the legs. Eyeing to restore the lost honour, Lille lock horns with Strasbourg at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in the French campaign. In a reverse fixture, Lille claimed a clean-sheet victory over Strasbourg 0-3. Burak Yilmaz is side-lined owing to a calf injury, Jonathan Bamba hasn’t seen the net lately. Yusuf Yazici and Jonathan David are the other goal-scorers for the french leaders. On a bumpy ride, Strasbourg have lost two and won just one of their past five games. Ludovic Ajorque and the midfielder Habib Diallo are the leading scorers for Strasbourg. With goals allowed record of 40, relegation still appears a threat for Strasbourg. The visitors are not worthy contenders for the hosts, they will fail this weekend.
Marseille vs Lyon
Marseille and Lyon clash against each other at Stade Velodrome on Matchday 27 of the French campaign. Two of Marseille’s key forwards, Florian Thauvin and Dario Benedetto won’t see the field for different reasons. Thauvin is injured while Benedetto is on suspension. Marseille’s points are on- level with Metz, a win will take them forward. But the Olympians have just won a single game out of their past five games, sharing the spoils in three fixtures. In contrast, Lyon are breaking all the obstacles and are a point better off PSG. Lyon forwards, Karl Toko Ekambi, Memphis Depay and Tino Kadewere have 34 goals among them. Rudi Garcia's men will dismantle the hosts.
Monaco vs Brest
Silencing the Parisians 0-2 in their last game, Monaco welcome Brest to Stade Louis II on Sunday. The Southern France club have a double-headed attack at the front, Kevin Volland and Wissam Ben Yedder have pocketed a total of 25 goals between them. Niko Kovac’s strategy has evolved to vertical, high-energy football from a defence based, passive football. Six points separate them and the league leaders, Monaco have the second joint-best goal tally in the French league. Misfiring Brest are sailing in the middle of the ocean away from the sharks in the deep and not so close to the shore to hit the deck. A narrow victory at home against Bordeaux earlier this month was their last. Brest’s attacking players have 25 goals among them. Yet their backline is fragile, allowing 47 goals so far. The hosts are in high spirits, they will destroy the visitors.
