The top tier of football in France came into existence in 1932, but took the name Ligue 1 as recently as 2002. The league follows the traditional style that is seen across most of Europe and features 20 teams, that each play 38 games per season. The top team is crowned as champions while the bottom teams are relegated. Up until recently it was the bottom three teams, however, from the 2015/16 season it is two teams. To replace the relegated teams the top two clubs from Ligue 2 join the top division.
At the time of writing Saint-Etienne holds the record for most Ligue 1 titles with 10 trophies, they have however not won since 1981 and other teams are beginning to chase their record. Olympique Marseille has 9 titles, Nantes has 8, AS Monaco and Lyon have 7 each. In recent year’s the biggest threat to Saint-Etienne’s record seems to be coming from Paris Saint-Germain.
In terms of club football PSG is a relatively new club, having been formulated in 1970. Since then they have claimed 6 Ligue 1 titles, four of those consecutively from 2012 - 2016. Heading into the 2016/17 campaign Paris Saint-Germain is reigning Champion and the questions around Europe are: Can they score a 5th consecutive win? And Which team, if any, is capable of challenging them for the title?
