The 2020-21 Ligue 1 campaign could well end up as one of the most popular sporting leagues in the world, as Lionel Messi's move to Paris Saint-Germain sent shock-waves across the footballing world. The Argentine great's arrival has already added to the fanfare of French football and it is only likely to increase as weeks go on, with the 34-year-old expected to play a key role in PSG's present and future.
Lille enter the season as defending champions but have a lot of work to do to retain their domestic crown. PSG have bolstered their squad with a handful of world-class additions and look almost unstoppable on paper as they look to reclaim the league title this season.
Lionel Messi has been the talk of the town in recent weeks and has quickly become the face of French football, with the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's transfer to the French capital seen as one of the most iconic moments in football history. Along with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr, the former Barcelona captain could form one of the most destructive attacking trios of all time, but only time will tell if PSG and the diminutive Argentine string together a run of wins to get their hands on the domestic crown again.
