- Saint Etienne;
The main focus of the football community is focused on two local grants - Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain. Two clubs in recent years have swelled from abundant financial injections. Therefore, it is very likely that the gold of the 80th edition will be played out exactly these two money bags.
The current winner of the national championship. Beginning in 2012, when FK began to actively sponsor Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, things at the legendary club again went up the hill. Claudio Ranieri was invited to the head coach position, and the lineup was added with a number of star players. The crowning success of the renewed team was the triumph in the 2017/18 Ligue 1 season.
By name it is the most formidable team of the French championship. In the current season, such colors as Tiago Silva, Dani Alves, Tiagu Motta, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler protect the colors of Parisians. The last acquisition of red and blue - Neymar. Qatari sheiks have bottomless wallets, so FC has more than once strengthened star players.
At the end of the last edition of the championship, the Parisians were second. Before the 2016/17 season, the red and blue won the top division gold 4 times in a row! Therefore, no one doubts the strength and ambitions of the Paris club.
The French championship was poorly quoted for many years. Stars of world football preferred to perform in the English, Spanish or German championships. But everything has changed. In the main division of the Fifth Republic, two superclubs appeared, which spurred sports passions, which did not fail to affect the entertainment of League 1.
