Ligue 1

Ligue 1 is the first division championship in France. It puts 20 professional teams in contention, competing for the title of French football champion. At the end of a season made up of round-trip meetings, the first two of the championship qualify directly for the Champions League, while the third gets the right to participate in the playoffs. The fourth, like the winner of the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue, win their ticket for the Europa League. In the bottom of the standings, the teams that finish 19th and 20th are automatically relegated to Ligue 2, and the 18th plays a play-off against the second division qualifier not to go down.
