Ligue 1 2022-23: A leaner and fitter Lionel Messi, a similarly rejuvenated Neymar and Kylian Mbappe staying after signing a new contract make Paris St Germain runaway favorites to retain their Ligue 1 title when the league season ends.

Last season, the Parisians clinched the title with a 15-point advantage over second-placed Olympique Marseille despite Messi failing, Neymar and Mbappe being thrown off balance and Sergio Ramos missing most of the campaign.

But their galaxy of stars seems to have turned a corner and shown new luster, evident during a pre-season tour of Japan and last Sunday’s emphatic 4-0 Super Cup win over Nantes.

It suggests the chasm between PSG and the rest of Ligue 1 could be even bigger this season, despite a coaching change with Mauricio Pochettino replaced by Christophe Galtier.

“Once we are at PSG, we have an obligation of result” Gaultier said on his arrival at the club last month.

“I am very ambitious. I came to Paris to win. There are three national trophies: we have to win them. You have to break records. And, in all modesty, I tell you, I came to Paris to win it all.

Galtier was the last manager to break PSG’s hegemony when he lifted Lille to the title two seasons ago and will have to balance his domestic dominance with his Champions League ambitions.

PSG kick off their campaign at Clermont on Saturday with the first game of the Ligue 1 season on Friday when hosts Olympique Lyonnais promoted Ajaccio.

LYON CHALLENGE

Lyon’s eighth-place finish last season was their worst since 1996, but Dutch coach Peter Bosz has bolstered his squad with Alexandre Lacazette returning from Arsenal, Corentin Tolisso from Bayern Munich and Nicolas Tagliafico from Ajax Amsterdam.

The club also has a new American owner, John Textor, who has promised supporters: “We want to win titles here. We’re going to show up and we’re going to spend.”

This greatly improves their chances of being able to challenge teams like Marseille, Monaco and Stade Rennes.

Marseille have sacked unstable coach Jorge Sampaoli and replaced him with former Croatia international Igor Tudor despite finishing second last season.

Monaco, who were held at home by PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round on Tuesday, have bolstered their attack with two new signings.

Switzerland’s Breel Embolo arrived from Borussia Moenchengladbach and Japan’s Takumi Minamino from Liverpool to help Wissam Ben Yedder who scored 25 goals last season.

Rennes finished fourth last season, scoring 82 league goals, and are set to repeat that attacking approach this campaign.
