The 2022-2023 version of Ligue 1 will experience some exciting new features. Four relegations in Ligue 2, the arrival of Christophe Galtier at PSG and the return of the Tolisso-Lacazette duo to Lyon. Not to mention OM, who will only have this competition to play from December.
While Ligue 1 will resume its rights in just a few days, we had the idea to present our prediction on the course of the 20 elite clubs for the next season. One piece of advice, stay seated.
The Corsicans are promoted to Ligue 1 this season, after an eight-year absence. However, it’s not for not trying to climb faster. But each time, the loss decided otherwise. In 2018 the ACA lost their play-off 4-0 against TFC, and in 2020 they finished third in the standings, a small point behind second lensois. Lack of luck, only the first two rise due to the health crisis. Goodbye to the hope of Liguain.
We will have to wait until last season to see Ajacciens validate their fourth promotion in their history. The basic ingredient? A hermetic defense that earned them a new record in Ligue 2, with only 19 goals conceded. Enough to bring some order to our dear and tender Ligue 1, which has been too prolific for our liking in recent years.
FFL Prediction : A solid, hard and bitter start to the season, where each trip to the Island of Beauty will be a pure nightmare for all visitors. However, we expect a sharp decline in the coming months. Because the magic recipe of the ascended is good, but it doesn’t go beyond All Saints.
the man to follow : Romain Hamouma. After experiencing descent into hell with the Greens, Romain has put the odds on his side to do it again this season. Do the lift only in the direction of the descent, the new concept made in Hamouma.
Few clubs manage to be so consistent at a professional level. Since 2015, SCO d’Angers have been playing in Ligue 1 and for seven years the club has consistently finished between 9th and 14th place. Only Real Madrid in the Champions League can boast of such consistency.
With the departures of Mohamed-Ali Cho, Thomas Mangani and Angelo Fulgini, the Angevins have decided to further reduce the technical dimension of their game, a choice that we cannot condemn, being followers of tight defenses and kick and run to the French
FFL Prediction : Like every season, Angers is one of the clubs in danger of maintenance. And each time, the SCO manages to majestically sink into the weakest part of the standings. But since we are crazy in the FFL, we are going to make a bold bet: Angers will not finish between 9th and 14th place. We warn you, here we are crazy.
the man to follow : Adrian Hunou. The former Stade Rennais supersub leaves Minnesota for Maine-et-Loire. He will have to hydrate himself well before he realizes that he has just traded the skyscrapers for the ponds and streams of Angers.
Ten years. It had been a decade since Ligue 1 teams had visited the legendary Abbé-Deschamps stadium. To do so, Auxerrois had to get rid of Sochaux and Saint-Étienne, all of whom were beaten in the play-offs during a penalty shootout. The man in this affair? Jean-Marc Furlan. With his cap screwed on backwards, the 64-year-old likes to crack codes and expects his players to do the same with their opponents’ kidneys.
It is certain that the AJA remembers its best years in the elite. However, we should not take the dream for a reality, at the risk of eating disappointment after disappointment every weekend. With the oldest squad in Ligue 1 (27 years on average), experience will be on the Burgundians’ side. As for the ardor of youth, we’ll probably be back.
FFL Prediction : AJA and Ligue 2 lived a love story of 10 years, before separating last May. But let the Auxerre fans rest easy. As they say, one Ligue 2 season lost, ten recovered.
the man to follow : Gaëtan Charbonnier. Gaëtan, Harry Windsor’s stunt double, is also AJA’s main offensive weapon in his spare time.

Brest Stadium 29
Michel Der Zakarian’s men narrowly missed out on the Ligue 1 soft bottom title last season. At seven points behind LOSC, there was absolutely nothing he could do. We already know your goal for next year; win this title and end a drought of 41 years since his last coronation. It was the French championship… of the second division. A premonition?
FFL Prediction : Stade Brestois will be neither too high nor too low in the final standings. As we say it, the Breton fans would sign directly to finish 10th in Ligue 1, right?
the man to follow : Michel Der Zakarian. The defensive line expert traded his special weapon last year for a tacky 4-4-2. Like Didier Deschamps, Der Zakarian ushered in the era of his time. Michel, it’s time to put the bus back in Bizot’s goal. We will never campaign enough for the return of the good 0-0.
Last season, the Clermontois discovered the ruthless world of Liguain for the first time in their history. Gone are the days when Auvergne was a land of rugby. He now he must accept the cohabitation with the round ball and the players who roll on the ground for a touch. We are in excess, of course, but since when is it not bad faith that guides our every word?
Clermont was the last club to keep last season. They thus achieved the double that all our licensees wanted to see: sending Bordeaux and Saint-Étienne to Ligue 2. And for that alone, the CF63 deserves our undying respect.
FFL Prediction : With four relegations scheduled for the end of the season, the chances of seeing Clermont in the elite have been greatly affected. But let’s be crazy, we predict a fierce fight until the last day to endure. Before we end up relegated anyway, let’s not lose sight of the main thing.
the man to follow : Maxime Gonalons. The bastard is back in France. After unsuccessful experiences on the side of Rome, Seville and Granada, Maxime will bring all his high-level experience to gently lead the people of Auvergne towards Ligue 2. Super Max.
