Ligue 1 Prediction 2023-24

Prediction Ligue 1

Can PSG again win the Uber Eats Ligue 1 title? They have been crowned champions in eight of the last ten seasons. 2022-23 saw them win the title but they so nearly didn't. Lens earned eight points more than them in the last ten games and were pipped by a single point. With a much better away record (17 wins at home, eight away), they would have been crowned champions.

The 2023-24 season sees 18 rather than the previous 20 clubs in Ligue 1. To achieve this reduced number of clubs, four sides rather than two were relegated from Ligue 1. Only two clubs were promoted to Ligue 1 and no play-offs were held.  The 18 clubs will all face each other home and away. That means they will all play 34 league matches this season to determine the final standings.

The top three clubs all automatically qualify for the 2024-25 Champions League group stages with the fourth placed club going into the qualifying rounds. In previous seasons it's only been the top three clubs that have gone into the Champions League but that competition is being reorganised next season. Fifth and sixth go into the Europa League and Europa Conference League respectively. The side finishing seventh could qualify for the Conference League deoending on who wins the French Cup. The bottom two clubs are automatically relegated and the side finishing 16th goes into a play-off with a Ligue 2 team.

It's going to be another exciting season with clubs such as Lens, Marseille, Lyon, Rennes, Lille and Monaco all determined to dethrone PSG. Our team of betting experts will be supplying you with free in-depth previews throughout the season, so don't miss them.

    PSG are again the favorites to become Ligue 1 champions. There was some unrest at the club to start the season regarding the future of Kylian Mbappe. However, the Frenchman has done brilliantly to focus on the current season, although a move to Real Madrid next season looks almost certain to transpire. Mbappe is the leading goalscorer in Ligue 1, netting an impressive 21 goals in 20 league fixtures. His contribution has fired the Parisians to the top of the league table with a league high 53 goals to boot. The defending champions have one hand on the league trophy with some bookmakers not even listing odds on them anymore with how big of favorites they are. PSG have a 10-point lead and a game in hand over second-place Brest, meaning the lead could extend to 13 points. With roughly a third of the season remaining, it would take a miracle for PSG to be denied their 12th Ligue 1 championship.

    As we tipped before the season started, PSG simply has too much talent for the rest of Ligue 1 to handle.
