2020-2021 Ligue 1 season dates

The 2020-21 season will start on August 22, 2020 and is scheduled to end on May 23, 2021. There’s a Christmas break of about three weeks. PSG is expected to have the league title wrapped up by early March.

Ligue 1 matches often start at the following (ET) times:

  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 3 p.m.
  • Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Sundays at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., and 3 p.m.

Here are the must-watch games this season:

Date and time (EST)    Teams

October 4, 2020 at 3 p.m.Lyon 1:1 Marseille
December 13, 2020 at 3 p.m.Paris Saint Germain vs. Lyon

March 21, 2020 at 3 p.m.Lyon vs. Paris Saint Germain

Will PSG run away with the title again?

That’s what we think. Aside from AS Monaco’s title triumph in 2016-17, it’s been Les Parisiens every season since the 2010s began.

With Kylian Mbappé spearheading one of the most exciting attacks in Europe, PSG should (again) continue their monopoly of domestic hardware. The only trophy to elude the capital club is the Champions League. After shocking exit at the hands of Manchester United and Barcelona in years past, can PSG make a deeper run this year? Will Neymar contribute to the cause before a likely summer departure?

In any case, don’t forget to set up your VPN and secure your internet while you watch French Ligue 1!
