League 1 | The FFL ranking of the 1st day

Last season we were left on a last day of madness. Three months later, we find our Liguain with goals in (almost) all areas. Making this the most prolific opening day in 45 years. Just that.

For this new season, we have decided to set a semi-target scale so that each club is housed on the same boat. While leaving the right to add or subtract points from time to time due to game events. And this, at the head of the customer, of course!


. Defeat: +1pt
. Own goal: +1 pt
. Goal conceded in added time: +1 pt
. Missed penalty: +1 pt
. Defeat by 3 goals or more: +1 pt
. 5 or more goals conceded: +1 pt for the 5th goal
. 5-game losing streak: +2 pts
. Unexpected defeat: +2 pts


. Victory: -1pt
. Goal scored in added time: -1 pt
. Victory by 3 or more goals: -1 pt
. 5 or more goals scored: -1pt from the 5th goal
. 5 consecutive wins: -2 pts
. Unexpected victory: -2 pts

Lyon Ajaccio: 2 – 1

Lyon: – 1

The Lyonnais had the privilege of opening this new season of League 1. And the Gones did not fail to put all the events of the match that made their legend on the menu of the day. The sequence of penalties for Lyon marked by Lacazette – Lopes’ kamikaze start can only send a wave of shivers through all football lovers.

Something tells us this season is going to be a daunting one.

Ajaccio: +1

There couldn’t be a better return to Liguain playing its first match at Groupama Stadium. Pantaloni’s men thought they could come back exactly 14 minutes. Time it took Romain Hamouma to join Anthony Lopes in the shower. It is not so easy to erase ten years spent with the Greens.

Strasbourg Monaco: 1 – 2

Strasbourg: +3

The Alsatians gave us the first home air conditioner of the season. Leading until the 90th + 2nd minute, Strasbourg and Habib Diallo thought they could grab the tie in the last moments. Before you don’t allow yourself to aim for a shoe size that’s a little too big. It will rarely be this cold in Alsace on August 7. A fact of play enough for us to add two extra points. Welcome.

Monaco: -1

ASM continue their crazy streak of ten consecutive games without losing in the league if we consider the end of last season (9 wins, 1 draw). The last team to beat Monegasque in Ligue 1 on March 13? Strasbourg lol

Clermont PSG: 0 – 5

Clermont: +3

In slang, this is called a handyman. In Auvergne we could simply call it “match against PSG”. Already last year, those from Clermontois took the sauce at the Parc des Princes (4-0) before giving them a hostile welcome on their return (6-1). Five new goals conceded this time, the average remains.

PSG: -3

After the soporific 4-0 inflicted on Nantes during the Trophée des Champions, PSG continue to abuse the FFL in France. It’s only August, and Neymar and Messi have already reached a better level than last season. But do not panic, the Parisian cycle continues its course.

Toulouse Nice: 1 – 1

Toulouse: 0

Assist by Branco van den Boomen, goal by Thijs Dallinga. We’re likely to see that Dutch connection plenty of times this season. For their return to Ligue 1, we cannot say that the violets reassure us.

Nice: 0

Driven to Téfécé, the Aiglons were ready to do anything not to lose Toulouse. Even if it means letting Aaron Ramsey score a goal. This shows the extent of the sacrifice when you know the legend of this fanatic.

At a sporting level we can only validate the draw with a promoted player to start his season.

Angers Nantes: 0 – 0

Angers: 0

Nothing better than a western derby to start the season. If the poster purrs, the content is a little less so. SCO did what they do best in Ligue 1: get the equalizer.

Nantes: 0

After the bag suffered during the Champions Trophy, the Canaries had only one concern: having to find a ball in the back of the net again. A step to forget this trauma.

Lent Brest: 3 – 2

Lens: -1

We won’t lie to you, Florian Sotoca starts the season with a lot of penalty points. A hat-trick for the opening match, rarely has our federation been carried so high.

Brest: +1

The Bretons believed in the comeback, but instead they offered us an almost exploitative love. Trailing 3-0 in the 65th minute, Brest came back to make it 3-2 and then decided to halt their comeback. We knew the famous generosity of the people of the North, that of Brittany is not bad either.

LOSC Auxerre: 4 – 1

LOSC: -2

For Paulo Fonseca’s first on the LOSC bench, we cannot say that it is very reassuring. Four goals went to the AJA, and so many doubts are being installed next to the FFL.

Auxerre: +2

We couldn’t have expected a better start to the season from AJA. The Burgundians conceded two goals after just two minutes. After leaving Bordeaux for Auxerre, Benoît Costil resumes his good habits. Way to 100.

Montpellier Troyes: 3 – 2

Montpelier: -1

Who would have thought that we will see four goals in 17 minutes between Montpellier and Troyes? If Liguain is not the most beautiful championship in the world, let’s take our turn. As for the MHSC, Téji Savanier’s crazy paw should calm down quickly. On pain of losing big points with his team in the FFL ranking.

Troyes: +1

He scored twice again, finally conceding ten minutes from the end. did you dream Estac did it. It’s only the beginning of the season, and we can’t wait to find out what the Rummy gang has in store for us each weekend.

Rennes Lorient: 0 – 1

Rennes: +3

Another derby took place on this first day; that of Brittany. And as expected, logic was not respected. Rennais lose the first match of the season, and Pep Génésio is already trying to defuse the situation. vibration

“There are 37 days left, if we are already alarmists and defeatists, the season will be long…” B. Génésio

Lorient: -3

The season has started quite badly for the Hakes. In the fight to maintain last year, the men of Régis Le Bris are already committing a first false step. All this without any of the Lorient players scoring. An impressive tour de force.

OM Reims: 4 – 1

OM: -3

All the elements were there to experience a legendary premiere at the Velodrome. A coach recruited in panic buying, a dressing room already assembled after the latter, and a public reserving its best tantrum. Welcome to Marseille, dear friends.

But like Neymar at PSG, when some supporters want him to miss so they can boo him better afterwards, the boy gives us a master class. Igor Tudor is of that caliber. The mistral has risen considerably over La Canebière since the final whistle.

Reims: +4

The Stade de Reims was a perfect sparring partner for the Marseillais. At the same time, it is hard to resist Luis Suárez, author of a double. Be patient, this is just the first valve of the season on him.
