Ligue 1 Rivalries


Olympique de Marseille vs Paris Saint-Germain


Paris Saint-Germain FC v Marseille Olympic OM - French Cup


Widely considered to be the ‘French Clasico’, this rivalry between the most populated cities in France did not have much to do with football at first. But the scene changed towards the turn of the millennium but it has somewhat grown colder now that PSG’s financial abilities have grown considerably over the last decade.


Olympique Lyonnais vs Olympique de Marseille


Olympique de Marseille v Club Atletico de Madrid - UEFA Europa League Final


The ‘El Clasico’ of the French league. The rivalry is more about competitiveness than bad blood. Both the teams have been responsible for setting the standards in the French league and have dominated the league in the past.


Olympique de Marseille vs AS Saint-Etienne


AS Saint-Etienne v Manchester United - UEFA Europa League Round of 32: Second Leg


The two most successful teams in the French league, Marseille and Saint-Etienne dominated French football in the 60s and 70s. The teams have had contrasting fortunes since then but the rivalry remains fierce.


FC Nantes vs AS Saint-Etienne


Nantes v Man U


Two famous academies known for producing the best players in the country are at the heart of this rivalry. One is ‘Les Verts’ that represented the working class of Saint-Etienne (an industrial city) famous for their high-octane game and ‘Les Canaris’ of Nantes which valued technical abilities over raw athleticism.


Present day scenario


Paris Saint-Germain were unstoppable in the Ligue 1 last season. Owing to their immense financial strength which other clubs can’t dream to rival, PSG have been able to rope in some of the best players in the world right now and become a club that is even considered to be Champions League favourites by several fans and pundits alike.


Paris Saint-Germain v Stade Rennais FC - 2019 Trophée des Champions


PSG won their 8th Ligue 1 Title with 91 points in 38 games last season.


Paris Saint-Germain and LOSC Lille have qualified for the Champions League Group stage, Lyon will be involved in the Champions League Play offs and St. Etienne have qualified for the Europa League group stage. Caen and Guingamp have been relegated from Ligue 1.
