Ligue 2 betting
French Ligue 2
The French second division is better known as Ligue 2 and consists of 20 teams. A regular season lasts 380 games in all, plus a few post-season games for teams facing promotion or descent.
The top two finishers in Ligue 2 receive automatic promotion to Ligue 1. Between the third, fourth and fifth-placed teams, there are playoff matches, the winners of which will face a Ligue 1 team for a chance to play in the French soccer elite. Since its introduction in 2016, the Ligue 1 / Ligue 2 play-offs are a 2-leg affair with the Ligue 2 club playing the first game at home and the second away, at the home ground of the Ligue 1 side.
At the bottom of the standings, the bottom three go straight down to the National.

Which team is dominating the league
After missing out by a hair's breadth (on the away goal rule) on the promotion playoff to Ligue 1 last season, Toulouse look better equipped this season. TFC is at the top of the league and is the most prolific team in front of the opposition's goals. As we reach the halfway point of the season, Toulouse has only lost once.
Behind them, the race for second place for automatic accession is much more fierce. Many contenders fight every weekend for second place.
Betting on the championship in 2021/22
Toulouse is the best attack in Ligue 2 with over ten goals more than the second-best attack. Toulouse has scored more than two goals per game on average since the beginning of the season.
On the defensive side, Ajaccio and Le Havre have the two tightest defences. Both concede an average of only one goal every other game.
Recommended bets on the championship
The most common scores in Ligue 2 are one-goal wins (1-0 and 0-1) and draws (0-0 and 1-1). With an average of 2.16 goals, the number of goals is very low for the second division championship.
A recommended bet is a match with less than 2.5 goals. This is one of the lowest scoring leagues in Europe. There are only 38% of the games with more than 2.5 goals in Ligue 2.
