Interest in the French league will be at an all-time high following the sensational signing of Lionel Messi by Paris St Germain yesterday.
The 34-year-old Argentinian has ended his two-decade stay in Barcelona to open a new chapter in the French capital.

He joins other world football names like Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti, compatriot Angel Di Maria and, of course, former Barca teammate Neymar.

The French championship is of course already underway. Messi’s new side got off to a victorious start by beating Troyes 2-1, thanks to goals from Achraf Hakimi and Mauro Icardi.

How to watch French Ligue 1 on British TV

The French league is broadcast exclusively on BT Sport here in the UK.

If you’re not a BT Sport subscriber, you can check out their latest plans here.

Customers who do not wish to be tied to a fixed-term contract can also use their £ 25 monthly passes.

The next Ligue 1 match broadcast on BT Sport will be Lorient against Monaco this Friday, August 13.

When will Messi make his PSG debut?

Messi’s involvement in the summer Copa America will likely prevent him from getting into the action this weekend when they face Strasbourg.

A more realistic goal will probably be the away game against Brest the following week, Friday August 20.

While Messi’s transfer seems to make the title race inevitable, the French league has had surprises in store in the past.

In the era of Qatari ownership of Paris St Germain, Montpellier, Monaco and more recently Lille have all battled the Parisians for the championships.

It would, of course, take a brave or foolish player to support someone other than Lionel Messi’s PSG this year.
