The new Ligue 1 season is almost upon us. Champions Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Stade Auguste Delaune to face Stade de Reims on Friday, August 8 to kick off the new campaign. As has become customary, it has once again been a summer of change in Le Championnat.

Not only has there been the now traditional exodus in talent from the French top flight, there has also been a heavy number of coaching changes. No fewer than seven sides will be boasting new bosses when the new term gets underway, and among those with new tacticians are powerhouses AS Monaco, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais.

Paris Saint-Germain will start the season as favourites to successfully defend their title and claim a third consecutive Ligue 1 crown, but they should face sterner resistance from a number of the chasing pack. The new faces are the popular RC Lens—finally granted their top-flight status after a legal wrangle—FC Metz and SM Caen.
