Europe’s fifth biggest football contest, France’s Ligue 1 kicked off its 2019-20 season last August 9th, together with the nation’s top 20 teams signalling that which they are capable of. With no Neymar, throw out in the group amidst rumours of transport negotiations, PSG revealed the Brazilian star will not be sorely missed following Cavani, Mbapp?? and Di Mar??a scored at a convincing 3-0 win over Nimes.
Meanwhile, Lyon, that seem to function as PSG’s major challengers, defeated Monaco in an impressive away victory with exactly the same score. Could, but other top French fries stop these two? Read on to learn more about our bets.
PSG would be the obvious contenders to win their seventh cup. They finished last season a staggering 16 points before Lille. And even though they decided not to spend lavishly in the summer’s transfer window, which remains open in France until September 2ndthey brought in gifted players to reinforce their group such as Spanish duo Pablo Sarabia and Ander Herrera. Rounding off their roster, they signed Senegal global Idrissa Gueye and flexible 23-year-old shield Abdou Diallo from Borussia Dortmund.
This makes trainer Thomas Tuchel’s team seem much more consistent this season, by the deadly assault of Cavani, Mbapp?? and Di Mar??a to some skilled midfield and solid defense. Regardless of the choice to different Brazilian star Neymar, who will probably be heading into Real Madrid or, most likely, Barcelona, PSG, in just -1000, remain the undisputed favorites to take the title back into Parc des Princes.
Olympique Lyonnais, simply called Lyon, are ready to go back to their glory early into mid-2000’s days, when they dominated French football and won seven back-to-back cups. The squad are consistent finishers on top of the table, and procured the third spot last year.
Considering their new players, they seem to have chosen wisely, leading to the likes of center-back Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria and former Lille players Thiago Mendes and Youssof Kon??.
Additionally, coach Sylvinho’s negative has a powerful attack consisting of Dembel??, Depay and Traor??. Together with PSG’s never-ending obsession on winning the Champions League, Lyon can handle an upset. Our bet is the 2019-20 Ligue 1 will be a two-way ordeal between the two these clubs, with Lyon standing in +1400 chances to lift their eighth French cup.
The very first outsiders that come into mind are Lille, who have three names, their final one in 2010-11. Coach Christophe Galtier’s team finished second , also have spent significantly, after their 80-million-euro selling of Nicolas P??p?? into Arsenal. To substitute the striker, they also signed Turkish left-footed talent Yusuf Nazici, whose abilities comprise quality shots and moves.
They also earned Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen, who scored both goals from Lille’s 2-1 defeat of Nantes in their opening game of the tournament on August 10, in addition to Timothy Weah and Benjamin Andr??. Lille are priced at +3300 to move all of the way this time around.
France’s classy league surely is in no lack of talent. Thus, other traditional squads should not be ruled out. These include teams such as Marseille and Monaco, Amongst Others.
The primary one is the fourth favourite side to claim the cup in +4000. The 2nd most successful national team with 9 cups, Marseille’s season, however, didn’t start off well. Coach Andr?? Villas-Boas was brought in to bolster their defensive capabilities, but they endured a shocking 2-0 home loss to Reims in their very first game of the competition on August 10.
With a limited budget because of fiscal honest play regulations, Marseille’s primary signing this season is Argentine striker Dar??o Benedetto, who with tons of speed and precision, is their primary expectation to score targets and bring them to the top of soccer soccer.
Finishing our main stakes are Monaco and Saint-??tienne, equally priced all the way out at +5000 to pull of what will definitely be a shocking conquer of this Ligue 1.
