  1. Winter Break Review of Ligue 1

    Lyon PSG

    If anyone suggested that Paris Saint-Germain would be sitting in second let alone third going into the winter break they certainly would not have been met with a gallic shrug, quite the opposite in all likelihood. But that’s the state of play in Ligue 1 which is shaping to be the most keenly contested league in Europe.

    The influence of Marcelo Bielsa at Marseille has set the league alight whilst Hubert Fournier has been reaping the dividends of Lyon’s phenomenally productive academy. The result is a Ligue 1 race that has become unexpectedly competitive.
