Pro­moted Teams

World Soccer - - SeaSon Preview -


The Al­sace club won the Ligue 2 ti­tle last sea­son and are cur­rently en­joy­ing an in­cred­i­ble pe­riod of suc­cess, hav­ing won suc­ces­sive pro­mo­tions since 2014 to move from semi-pro­fes­sional foot­ball and into the top flight.


An­other side to have reached Ligue 1 af­ter suc­ces­sive pro­mo­tions, they earned pro­mo­tion af­ter Em­manuel Bour­gaud scored a 96th-minute win­ner against Reims. Gael Kakuta is back in France af­ter a trou­bled pe­riod in China and will hope to bring some class to the party.


Have pin­balled be­tween Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 since 2012 but hope their pro­mo­tion play-off win against Lori­ent will be the cat­a­lyst for a pro­longed spell in the top flight.
