Ligue 1 Live
Ligue 1 is what the top ranking Football League of France is being called since 2003, and the League this year will be celebrating its 72nd season this year, 2009-2010. The season lasts through August of 2009 to May of 2010. Ask any Ligue 1 fan and they will tell you why the year long Live football season never ceases to excite season after season – pure dramatic football mania! At present there are twenty teams that play under Ligue 1 and they play a total of thirty eight matches in the home and away system. The relegation and promotion system is also the same this Live Football 2009 season as it is every season, the bottom three of the season will be replaced by the best three of the Ligue 2. This year the three teams promoted are Lens, Montpellier and Boulogne.
The current biggie of the League is Olympqiue Lyonnais commonly called as Lyon. They hold the coveted title and have become legendry in the League, winning the championship in a row of seven seasons. So if you are a fan, do not miss a single match this season as it will be decided whether the team is capable of holding on to their title. Their immediate competition is perhaps Saint Etienne Loire, they finished in fifth position last season but have been eyeing revenge this season and their fans will tell you they are enough well prepared. This team has in fact the largest number of wins in the history of Ligue 1, with having won a total of ten championships over the years, even though they have been having a bas spell these last twenty five years, history might just be repeated this season. Nantes is another team to watch out this season, with having a win in 2001, the title might just be up for grabs for them as well. A season of guesses? Most rightly so.
Ligue 1 gives you every reason not to miss their matches this season; rising French footballers like Zidane, Anelka and Malouda are all Ligue 1 discoveries. Which players to wait and watch out for? That list would include the previous season biggies like Michel Bastos, Karim Benzema, Maurro Cetto, Andre Pierre Gignac, all from their teams respectively – Lille, Lyon, Toulouse, Toulouse. Fans of their teams are definitely in for some heart-pounding competition this year, whether Lyon who have not proved themselves in Europe bring home the title again or Marseille who finished up in second place last season will rise from the ashes?

Ligue 1 has tended to be dominated by Lyon in the past; however after the club sold a lot of its players in the summer it looks like it may become a lot more competitive. Olympique Marseille and a few other teams will look to challenge them, and while this is there best chance in a long time, Lyon have not tended to stay down for long. Should you wish to get a glimpse of the next rising French stars, as quite a few (like Henry, Anelka, Malouda and Zidane) have emerged from Ligue 1 in the past, or should you just wish to watch a game or two, you can watch Ligue 1 live now at OleOleFootball.com with their live football feeds.
Last year, Lyon stormed to the title, blasting every other team out of their way and comfortably finishing seventeen points ahead of a Ribery-inspired Marseille in second place. Marseille did well to challenge for the Champions League group stages, finishing eight points ahead of their nearest competitors Toulouse (who lost to Liverpool in the qualifying rounds) while Rennes missed out and had to play for the UEFA Cup after they finished just a point behind third place. At the other end of the table, Nantes, Sedan and Troyes were relegated after some poor performances and a season most of their players will want to forget.
This season, Lyon have once again risen to the top of the pack, doing well despite their losses of Florent Malouda, Eric Abidal and other players in the summer. They have not done as well in Europe though, and have already been thrashed by both Barcelona and Scottish side Rangers in the group stages. They have been challenged in Ligue 1 this year by the unlikely force of AS Nancy Lorraine, who only finished thirteenth in the table last year. AS Nancy have surprised all to move up to second place, level with Lyon but just behind due to their inferior goal difference. Marseille have done a lot worse than expected due to the departure of star player Franck Ribery to Bayern Munich for around 20 million pounds, and have even fall into the relegation zone after picking up just seven points from their first ten games. Marseille have done reasonably well in Europe however, beating last year’s finalists Liverpool at Anfield and will hope to qualify.
Lyon have not sped away as they did last year, with Le Mans in third place with nineteen points followed by Bordeaux and Rennes who are just a further point behind. Fans of the league will hope that we finally see some competitive action this season, and should Marseille rise from the depths we may well do so.
