Recently, French football is experiencing not the best times in Europe. Even though many clubs in this country have recently improved their financial situation, this is not helping the French to achieve success in Europe. However, in the domestic area, they can give such a show that England or Spain has never dreamt. In France, thanks to the stamina of the players, you will never meet “crawling football.” On the football fields of the Musketeers’ country, the game is notable for its speed, technicality and lack of compromises.

The awards are very obvious here: PSG and Monaco money bags (They expect the next championship from the first ones in the coming season; the ratio of the offices for them is the lowest). These clubs can buy the best world players than they regularly do. Therefore, in the case of a successfully guessed misfire of the “money bag” – you can pretty well replenish your own “money bag.” In addition to them, there is also Lyon, which is now undergoing an overhaul. Jean-Michel Ola is building a new stadium, because the club works in an economical mode, paying more attention to the youth than turning out any loud transfers. However, this did not prevent the Lyonians from knocking together a team, for which half of Europe already runs. However, now Remi Guard left because he is waiting for Liontsev in the 2014-15 season is hard to say. Regarding handicap and total transactions, this is not the most common type of betting in France. Most players prefer to put one of the teams in this league to win.

Football battles in the French stadiums are not inferior regarding entertainment and emotional intensity to the rest of the top European leagues. The popularity of the league gradually grows with the fans.

In contrast to the French Cup, only professional clubs can participate in the League Cup. From the 2006/07 season, an addition made to the tournament regulations, according to which the two best teams of the first French league begin participating in the competition at the 1/16 final stage.

Ligue 1 fixture

French Ligue 1 is one of the most unpredictable tournaments on the planet. Until recently, there were continually changing pronounced grandees. Yesterday’s champion in the new season could ultimately fail, and some middle peasant, having made a good line-up, on the contrary, could become a champion. However, the money of wealthy owners still did their job. PSG and Monaco in France so far dictate their own rules of the game.
