Ligue 1 2021/2022 Preview and Betting Tips

The 2020-21 Ligue 1 season saw the unexpected coronation of Lille, to the detriment of a more sovereign PSG on the national scene. Paris Saint-Germain finished in second place, just one point behind. 

This season gave us an exceptionally breathtaking finale, both at the top and at the bottom of the table. Lille, Lyon, Paris, and Monaco pulled out all the stops to secure qualification in the Champions League; Marseille, Rennes, and Lens fought until the last day to join the new version of the Europa League; Nantes, Brest, Lorient, Strasbourg, and Reims have given everything not to be relegated.

What would the Ligue 1 21/22 season look like? It’s hard to predict, but here we provide outright tips on the new 21/22 season; let’s ride. 

Who Will Win The Ligue 1 Season 21/22?

Everyone expected PSG to win Ligue 1 last season unopposed or with little competition from Olympic Lyon, but a surprise upset was pulled by Lille OSC last season. 

Ligue 1 now has 3 major contenders for the trophy PSG, Lille, and Olympic Lyon. Read our prediction below. 

Our Prediction: Even though it looks like PSG are obsessed with winning the Champions League, they are the best bet to win a return to the Ligue 1 throne. Their coach is still waiting for his major club trophy, and this season might be his especially with the addition of Messi to his squad, PSG looks set to blow teams away this season.

Where to Bet:

  • Nairabet: PSG to lift the Ligue 1 trophy is 1.21 as at the time of this post.
  • Betway (Nigeria): Betway offers 1.21 odds for PSG to Win the Ligue 1.
  • Sportybet: Sportybet offers PSG to win the Ligue 1 at 1.21.

Lille OSC can also pull off another upset, but that would be a far reach. Another top contender is Olympic Lyon and Monaco. However, they’re currently not convincing enough to win the trophy. 

Top 3 – Who Will Go to the Champions League?

Last season, Ligue 1 had a very entertaining battle to secure the Champions League place. Would the same happen again this season? It’s yet to be known though the signs are there, especially with the fans returning to the stadiums.

Our Prediction: PSG, Olympic Lyon, Lille OSC are expected to qualify for the champions league. 

Where to Bet:

  • Betway Nigeria: Betway offers 1.01 odd for PSG to qualify, 1.64 odd for Lyon, and 2.60 odd for Lille.
  • Nairabet: Nairabet offers 1.01 odd for PSG to qualify, 1.64 odd for Lyon, and 2.60 odd for Lille.

Who Will Relegate?

Just like the battle for trophy and UCL qualification, there was also a battle for avoiding relegation by lower-placed teams. We expect a repeat of the relegation battle this season. We would advise it’s best to avoid placing 1×2 bets on lower placed teams during the second half of the season because it becomes highly unpredictable then.

Our Prediction: Reins is the best bet. They were lucky to escape relegation last season, signed a new coach who has a good record of being sacked, and we don’t have confidence in him keeping Reims up this season.

Who Will Win the Golden Boot?

Ligue 1 has loads of stars which makes goal scoring highly competitive. Even though Depay has departed for Barcelona, there are stars in the Ligue still compete for the Golden Boot award, and most significant person is Lionel Messi.

Our Prediction: Messi is known to punish teams and defenses in La Liga and Europe. We expect him to win the Golden Boot award this season especially with Di Maria, Mbappe and Neymar supplying him. He is a goal-scoring, a dribbling, and assist beast. He is set to get more goals into the net than anyone else in Ligue 1 this season.

Who Will Be Player of the Season?

There are several contenders for the Ligue 1 player of the season award. Players like Ben Yadder, Neymar, Di Maria, Messi and Mbappe are all top contenders to win the best player of the season award due to their insane personal abilities.

Our Prediction: Neymar is a strong contender, but knowing Messi and his ability, we expect him to win the Ligue 1 player of the  season. He would need to prove himself in Ligue 1, and that would likely serve as a motivation.

Who Will Be Manager of the Season?

Ligue 1 best manager of the season award is always a tough call. One would say it will be PSG’s coach, but looking closer, that call was wrong last season and some other seasons. Ligue 1 is becoming more tactical for those with keen eyes, and the battle for the best manager is becoming more intense.

Our Prediction: We expect Peter Bosz of Olympique Lyon to win the best manager of the season. Even though he lost Depay to Barcelona, his tactical masterclass might give him the best manager award this season.

Pochettino has been failing to carry the club’s weight, especially when looking at the quality of the squad he has at his disposal. Under his watch, PSG lost a trophy to start the season with, and this might continue if he doesn’t turn things around.

Who Will Be the First Coach to be Sacked?

Ligue 1 is becoming competitive, and that means coaches are more likely to be sacked now than ever before. This sacking often happens at top clubs, but we have seen lower-place clubs sacking coaches to become competitive in recent years.

Our Prediction: Reins Coach Bruno Génésio might be the first to be sacked. His coaching CV is littered with sacking, and in his last club, he was sacked in just 13 games.
