Ligue 1 Betting Update – December 2020

PSG are still the team to beat in Ligue 1. 

Despite a poor start the team from the capital enjoyed a two-point lead at the top of the table as we entered December although they were reeling following a 3-2 defeat to Monaco away from home.

Lille – placed second at the start of the month having only lost once this season – are proving to have one of the sturdiest defences in the division.

Lyon, Montpellier and Monaco were also making their presence felt with plenty to play for as we begin to look forward to 2021.

At the foot of the division Dijon are looking anything but mustard, winless in 11 outings by the end of November. 

Strasbourg and Lorient are the other two sides currently swimming in dangerous waters.
