Ligue 1 is going to be sadly a bit smaller league now. Basically a one horse race. Both Lille and Mont sold their top performing players from the year, and Psg just got really heavy with talent upfront and in the back; Thiago Silva and Zlatan were rated among the top players at their position in europe (Zlatan second, behind Messi; Thiago 2nd or third, depending how you're counting defensive positions). Its good at some point for Ligue, knowing they will have a top tier team since for so long they have been a distant fifth, at best, and have been basically a feeder league for the Prem and others. My only complaint is that they might have zero challenge from other teams in their league, and thus is going to make it quite boring. Hopefully the other teams will share their strengths and surprise us (don't think anyone had Montpiller in the top four going in, let alone winning the league)
I think Marseille and OL will compete still. Obviously PSG is the heavy favorite but I don't think it'll be a one horse race.
