Ligue 1 2018/19

Bonjour! I hate my own fingers now, so this is a quick and dirty guide to Ligue 1.

 

Winner: PSG. You didn’t need anyone to tell you that.

 

Betting Without PSG: Lyon won nine of their last 10 matches once out of the Europa League and have kept Tanguy N’Dombélé, Lucas Tousart and Houssem Aouar as well as forwards Memphis Depay, Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fékir. They just edge out Marseille, who were an excellent fourth in their first full season under Rudi Garcia and crucially have almost the same side ahead of this campaign. Monaco have a fantastic manager in Leonardo Jardim but this season’s window has been particularly harsh for them and the loss of Joao Mountihio, Thomas Lemar and Fabinho couldb be too much

 

Advice: 2 pts Lyon w/o PSG (7/5 general)

 

 

Relegation: It is a real surprise to see Caen as big as 9/1 – they have escaped by the skin of their teeth on the two final day campaigns but they can get out of jail only so many times.

 

Advice: 1 pt Caen (9/1 general)

 

 

Top Goalscorer: Edinson Cavani top-scored last season but Neymar had a better goal per game ratio and the Brazilian, if he can stay up, looks value to take the honours. Many will be interested in Kylian Mbappe at 13/2 with Sportingbet.

 

Advice: 2 pts Neymar (7/5 Sportingbet)
