2017/18 French Ligue 1 Season Prediction

Ligue 1

Without even realize, the French football league has began where there is already 7 matches been played so far this weekend. The league has officially kicked off with AS Monaco F.C. as the defending champion won 3-2 over Toulouse F.C. with Kamil Glik scored the last goal of the game. With the season has already started, I would like this opportunity to write about my prediction about the prediction on the league champions, the potential top scorer, team to watch and as well as player to watch. Hope you guys may enjoy reading up this league prediction since it would be the first article for a football league season prediction.

As mention earlier on, Monaco are the defending champion after a shocking league winner last season. In this season, I don’t feel comfortable that Monaco would win back-to-back title because the club has already sold some of their best players during the summer transfer such as Bernando Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiémoué Bakayoko to Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. On top of that, I’m not really sure about the other clubs but Paris Saint-Germain has been busy during the summer transfer window especially they signed Neymar by setting the new transfer record of €222 million (£200 million) from F.C. Barcelona. Honestly, I’m not really sure that they could found the right player but as for now I could say that PSG has the upper hand on becoming this season league winner. In conclusion, I would see that the teams to watch for this season are AS Monaco F.C. and Paris Saint-Germain F.C. in out of the team that are playing in this league.

In terms of this season’s top scorer, I would say that it’s to early to predict but there are couple of potential that could become this season’s top scorer which are Neymar, Cavani, Mario Balotelli and Radamel Falcao. There are the four players that could become this season’s top scorer even though Balotelli wouldn’t be the most possible out of the four players as anything could happen this upcoming season since its just the first game. Furthermore, I could say that Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Falcao could score more than 25 goals since that more and more world class striker are joining to Ligue 1’s club. While as for the players to watch, I would say that Neymar is the player to watch because of the value that Paris Saint-Germain have paid to Barcelona to secure Neymar’s signature. I would like to see whether Neymar will reach the expectation that PSG had invested on him as an addition player to the club. Hopefully he will somehow reach the expectation that I personally had on him.

That is all I shall say about my overview prediction for this league and hope that most of my prediction could be correct by end of this season. So, what do you think about my prediction? Do comment below on your prediction about this season based on the key point that I mention in this blog and we talk over it. Thanks
