This Friday, the 2022-2023 Ligue 1 calendar was unveiled. It contains two winter breaks, one for the World Cup and one after.
This Friday, the LFP published the Ligue 1 2022-2023 calendar. Inevitably turned upside down by the programming of the World Cup in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, this season will be partly truncated.
Two truces and a Boxing Day
The 85th edition of Ligue 1 will start on the weekend of August 7 and 8 with a clash between Strasbourg and monacowhile Paris will move to Clermont, Marseilles will welcome Reims and Lyons will receive the promoted Ajaccio. The winter break will therefore start earlier than usual, after the weekend of November 12 and 13, and the players will return after the World Cup to play a Boxing Day as in England, with two matches scheduled, including one on January 1, 2023… After these two matches, the players in the Talent League will have a new one-month winter break and will return at the start of February.

And the shocks in all this?
After the exciting season that we are experiencing, expectations will be high in terms of spectacle and suspense again this year. The shocks will be numerous and it is a PSG-Monaco which will open the ball from the 4th day on August 28, the Monegasques will then go to Nice for a southern derby on September 4.
The Olympico between Lyon and Marseille will take place on November 6 at the Stade Vélodrome and the return on April 23 at Groupama Stadium.
The first Classic between Paris and Marseille will be played on October 16 at the Parc des Princes, the return to the Vélodrome on April 2. The Marseillais will also have a hell of a marathon before the World Cup since they will chain Paris, Lens, Strasbourg, Lyon and Monaco between October and November, with very probably one or even two Champions League matches interspersed.
