The UEFA Champions League is one of the most watched soccer tournaments across Europe as we see the top teams from each league compete to become the ultimate squad. Taking place during the summer of 2019 we saw the qualifying rounds of the 2019/20 season begin and after a short break the competition commenced with the group stages starting on the 17th September and due to end in December ready for the knockout phases to start in early 2020. As the group stages are well underway, we thought we would take a brief look at match day and the qualifiers of this season’s Champions League tournament. So, if you are interested in finding out more about the fixtures then keep on reading.
Champions League Qualifiers
The Champions League Qualifiers for 2019/20 started on the 25th June and ended on the 28th August 2019. Within these stages of the football tournament the final qualifying teams were determined for the competition.
In the f
World Cup fever swept the nation over the past few months, and now the tournament has finished the spectators’ attentions are waiting for the next big thing. After France achieved the 1st place trophy in Russia, the interest in watching Ligue 1 clubs compete has greatly increased.
Due to this curiosity when it comes to the French club teams, we thought we would put together this article to discuss all things French football. From the upcoming players to how the make-up of the French soccer leagues is, you will find this all out below.
About Ligue 1 and its Influence
Ligue 1 is the top tier league for French club teams with the Ligue 2 and Champtionnat National beneath it. Therefore, the highest scoring sides are seen in the top division compared to those of smaller lesser skilled ones.
How the transition between these three work, is that at the end of a tournament, the bottom three teams are relegated to the league beneath it and t
At the moment, Paris Saint Germain seem all but guaranteed to clinch their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title. Before they settle the score in the domestic league, though, the Parisians will get their first shot at 2015/16 silverware in the final for the Coupe de la Ligue.
A Golden Opportunity for Lille
The championship match, scheduled for April 22nd, will pit PSG against Lille OSC. Lille, of course, are not contenders for the Ligue 1 title this year and have spent most of the season ranked in the lower reaches of the league standings stable. The Great Danes last won trophies in 2011 when they picked up both the Ligue 1 title and the Coupe de France.
However, for the majority of the recent PSG dynasty, Lille have been kept away from the winner's circle. Last season, for instance,

The first half of Lille's 2014 2015 campaign was shoddy at best, and the football club even fell as far as 15th place on the league standings table. The good news is that things have looked up for the Great Danes during the latter half of the season. From the end of February through to the end of April, the team won six of their eights fixtures. The bad new is that April 25th brought Lille their worst loss of the year (against PSG), and that this past weekend saw them fall once more, in a 2-3 away match against Toulouse.
With that said, the 2014 2015 campaign isn't over just yet. The Great Danes still have fixtures on the way against Olympique Marseille and Metz, and could end the season on a high note with a pair of victories. Help them out by picking up a new jersey or two from the Soccer Box store! The red Lille home shirt 2014 2015 and the yellow away jersey are both still available for purchase, so get yours before the end of the year!

Unfortunately, the Great Danes have struggled to live up to that status with the 2014 2015 season. Not only did OSC Lille fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, and not only were they eliminated from the Europa League after the group stage, but they've also been lagging behind in Ligue 1 itself. You can give the football club a bit of extra support today with a new Lille home jersey 2014 2015 or away shirt, available at Soccer Box.
The 2014 2015 Ligue 1
The 2014 2015 Ligue 1 started off well enough for Lille. The club returned from summer training with a lukewarm at-home draw with Metz, but bounced back quickly, winning three of their first five fixtures. The wins-home victories against Lorient and Nantes, and an away triumph over Caen-left the Great Danes temporarily at the top of the league table after week five.
Unfortunately for fans in the Lille shirt, the stint at the top didn't

Fast-forward to the halfway point in the 2014 2015 season, and things are not looking nearly as good for the Great Danes. Of the 18 games the team has played so far, they've only won five. Therefore they have a lot of ground to make up in 2015, if they are going to be anywhere near the podium come May. Support their underdog football campaign with a new Lille home shirt 2014 2015, available for purchase at Soccer Box!
Fall from Grace
At this point last year, Lille had already taken up residence in the third-place slot. The squad didn't leave that position once during the second half of the 2013 2014 Ligue 1-a testament to their impressive consistency.
2014 2015, meanwhile, has been a fall from grace of sorts for the wearers of the Lille soccer jersey. Last year, the team managed a record of 20 wins; 11 draws, and seven losses throughout the entire 38-game stretch. In the first half of the 2014

The Lille Olympique Sporting Club is making a real play for the championship title in France's Ligue 1 division this season, and what better way to celebrate that fact than with a brand new version of the Lille football jersey? The club went back to the drawing board this summer as far as uniforms were concerned, ending a contract with kit manufacturer Umbro and signing with Nike instead. Nike has since injected some new life into the Lille soccer jerseys, including a bold and bright reimagining of the team's away shirt.
Indeed, the Lille away shirt 2014 2015 is a major departure from every other away jersey that the Lille squad has ever worn. Where last year's away shirt really just inverted the white on red design of Lille's home shirt, this year's version sees Lille throwing new colors into the mix:

Last year, Lille OSC switched kit designers, moving from Umbro to Nike for a few of its most stunning football jerseys ever. This year, Nike has launched yet another redesign of the Lille football shirt, keeping elements of last season's home jersey the color scheme of red with blue trim but adding a subtle triangular pattern down the center of the shirt. The triangles perfectly accentuate the V-neck of the soccer shirt.
In fact, the new Lille jerseys look so good that you won't just want to get one for yourself. You'll want to get a few for your son and daughter as well. Luckily for you, Soccer Box currently has stock of both adult Lille shirts and the Lille kids home jersey 2014 2015.
The kids Lille football shirt is an exact replica of the shirts that Lille's players will be wearing
