Ligue 1 may lack the prestige of some of Europe's other football leagues, like La Liga or the Premier League, but it still delivers top-quality football and some of the world's best players and is set for a thrilling finale this weekend.
Leaders Lille could only draw during the week, leaving the title race alive for the final round. Lille now hold a one-point advantage of perennial champions PSG with one game remaining. If Lille beat Angers away in their final match, the championship is over. But if they slip up, PSG can steal the crown in their away clash with Brest.
In Australia, beIN SPORTS holds the broadcast rights. It shows the biggest games in the league live, so you can keep up by watching on TV or streaming matches to your favourite device.

Live stream Ligue 1 with Kayo Sports
With coverage of over 50 sports from all over the world, Kayo Sports is the premier destination for Aussie sport enthusiasts. The platform's library includes all three beIN SPORTS channels, so you can keep up with Ligue 1 with minimal hassle. A Basic subscription will set you back $25 a month, while a Premium subscription costs $35 a month. The only difference is the Basic plan allows you to watch on two screens at the same time, while the latter supports three simultaneous streams.
In addition to its library of live and on-demand content, Kayo Sports offers a great, futuristic user interface, as well as several features that make catching up with sport a breeze. Users can watch up to four matches at once on the same screen with SplitView or familiarise themselves with figures and statistics thanks to Interactive Stats. Key Moments lets you jump right into the action that matters in selected matches. No Spoilers will keep the score hidden if you're running late and if you're short on time you can tune in for a Kayo Mini, which is a condensed version of a game delivering all the highlights in less than 20 minutes. Feel free to read our detailed Kayo Sports review for an in-depth analysis of how the service works.
Alternatively, new Kayo users get a 14-day free trial so you can just try it out with a Ligue 1 match day. The service is available on most devices including PCs/Macs, smartphones and tablets. If you're keen to watch on the big screen, you can do so via Android TV, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Chromecast and Samsung TV (2017 or later).
Live stream Ligue 1 matches with beIN SPORTS CONNECT
beIN Sports also operates its own streaming platform that gives you access to everything the channel has to offer. It's called beIN SPORTS CONNECT. It boasts many European leagues, including Ligue 1.
