French Ligue Player Stats
What's not to love about player statistics? They’re among the best tools in your betting toolkit, and our Ligue 1 player stats are truly top-notch.
Player stats can most effectively be used when making bet builders, adding well-researched legs will give a better chance of more positive results.
For example, you may have noticed that Mbappé is scoring lots of goals, so adding him as a goalscorer could be a good leg. The departure of Messi and Neymar means betting on a PSG assist could be a bit trickier, though.

Players To Look Out for in Ligue 1 2022/23 Season
- Kylian Mbappé – Yes, he’s still here — the heir to the Messi and Ronaldo throne has remained ‘loyal’ to PSG until he runs down his contract at the end of the season. He’s already tearing up the league as top scorer.
- Takumi Minamino – Leaving Liverpool behind might have been the best thing for his career — he’s absolutely flying in Ligue 1. Six goals contributions in seven games have been enough to put Monaco on top of the table.
- Romain Del Castillo – Brest are just one point off top spot, and much of this is thanks to Del Castillo. Three goals, two assists, and three team of the weeks all from midfield is spectacular.
- Jonathan David – David was the outstanding star of Lille’s 2020/21 title win, scoring 15 goals in the last campaign and still scratching the surface of his potential. The Canada international could be ready to break the 20-goal barrier this season.

About the French Ligue 1
Sometimes called Le Championnat, the French league was inaugurated in September 1932 under the name ‘National'. After the first season, the league's name changed to Division 1, until it was rebranded in 2002 to its current name, Ligue 1.
It started with 20 teams and still includes the same number to this day. You’ll find teams such as Marseille, Rennes, Montpellier, Nice, Metz, and Nimes, which were part of the founding clubs and are still participating in the current season.
A total of 73 clubs have taken part in the Ligue 1 from its foundation to today. Paris Saint-Germain is the only one not to have suffered points relegation as they were administratively relegated in 1972, but returned to the Ligue 1 in 1974, where they’ve remained since.
Following heavy investment by the Qatari State, PSG have enjoyed a stranglehold over the division in the 2010s. Their superstar-laden squads have often been comfortably superior to their counterparts, with PSG having claimed seven of the last nine Ligue 1 titles.
PSG’s current supremacy resembles Lyon’s dynastical period at the turn of the millennium. Although they won seven titles on the bounce between 2002 and 2008, they have failed to claim domestic glory since.

Ligue 1 stats could be just what you need to stop betting based on ‘vibes’ and start backing your bets with some facts. Remember, stats don’t lie, and knowing how to take advantage of them could win you a bet or two.
Right now, Kylian Mbappé has scored seven goals in six matches — he’s on course to winning the Ligue 1 Golden Boot for a fifth time in a row.
A farmer’s league is used to describe a league with a lack of competitiveness, and Ligue 1 has been dominated by PSG both in terms of trophies and financially. However, there are still some brilliant teams competing, and the likes of Lille and Monaco have won Ligue 1 in the last decade.
Last year’s player of the season was Kylian Mbappé, his third in a row and fourth overall. We expect him to win it again for the fifth and possibly final time.
The Ligue has taken a hit in recent years, and the rise of the Eredivisie in the Netherlands means that they are currently the 6th league, a whisker behind the Eredivisie.
To put it bluntly, no, Ligue 1 is nowhere near the Premier League in terms of finances and football pedigree. That being said, Lens just beat Arsenal 2-1 in the Champions League.
