France’s top flight football division was originally formed in 1930 and it was officially given the title of Ligue 1 in 2002. Within the league are some of the best sides in Europe and, because there are some very wealthy owners involved, many of the world’s best players are employed here.

Ligue 1’s Greatest Ever
If anyone was in doubt about the spending power of Ligue 1, those misgivings came to an end on August 3rd 2017. That was the day that Neymar’s representatives confirmed the player’s world record transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for a staggering sum of 222 million euros.
Neymar remains in a supremely talented PSG squad that includes Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, Mauro Icardi and Thiago Silva.
Among PSG’s great rivals are Marseille, Lille, Lyon and Monaco amongst others. Each will have their own battle for European places but in terms of the title, Paris Saint-Germain are the dominant team in the division.
The urge to play in France’s elite footballing division may be perceived as a recent one but over the years, some of the world’s greatest have played here at some stage in their careers. The list of players from outside France includes Dimitar Berbatov, Chris Waddle and Jurgen Klinsmann. As for domestic players, France have won the World Cup on two previous occasions - in 1998 and 2018 - and the majority of the two squads will be familiar to fans around the world.
The great names of French football - Thierry Henry, Hugo Lloris, Emmanuel Petit, Frank Leboeuf, Didier Deschamps, Zinedine Zidane and many more began their careers in Ligue 1 and their performances have left an indelible mark here.
Ligue 1 has given us some thrilling moments over the years and there have been some nail biting title and relegation battles. The highest scoring match in the history of the competition will, however, be hard to match. Back in the 1935/36 campaign, Sochaux beat Valenciennes by the incredible scoreline of twelve goals to one.
Even with the mercurial talents of Neymar up front, Paris Saint-Germain may never come close to matching that result but there will be plenty of goals and drama in Ligue 1 as we move forward. Unibet are standing by with hundreds of betting markets for every match and, thanks to our live streaming service, you need never miss out on all the important action as it plays out.
