    Looks like BeIN is picking up up where they left off at the end of last season in terms of Ligue 2 coverage. They had Toulouse-Bastia live on the main channel on Saturday and right now Paris FC-Auxerre is available on Xtra.

    Here's hoping the Monday night game will be a permanent feature on Xtra and they'll use the Connect channels to show more games on regular match days. Losing the La Liga rights has definitely opened up slots on the schedule--all for the better for Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 followers.

    Catching up on some Ligue 1 from last weekend and on Xtra they had the Bordeaux-Angers match with a one-man booth consisting of...........Thomas Rongen. He's barely competent as a color guy, but he has no PxP skills whatsoever. The only thing I will say in his defense is that he didn't constantly jabber like his normal PxP partner Phil Schoen.

    Guessing BeIN was desperate because aside from the featured 9AM game, the others in that time slot don't have world feed commentary, just stadium sound, and since they're now showing simultaneous matches on Xtra and the main channel in that slot with La Liga gone, they had to improvise.

    PSG is the only thing I will tune in for.
    Everything else might as well have ambient sound for all I care.

    Kind of a spoiler:

    There is a huge brawl happening in the Nice - Marseille match.

    A bunch of fans even ran onto the field.

    This is also a good rivalry, to be fair.

    I am also a low key fan of Sampaoli as crazy as he is.

    Ligue 2 coverage today: both afternoon (French time) games (Nîmes-Caen and Toulouse-Valenciennes) are on Connect 4 and 5 right now. Not seeing any of the evening games on the schedule.

    Does Bein not have the african world cup qualifiers? I could have sworn they did but don’t see any reference to them?

    Don't remember reading about this, but looks like CAF qualifiers are all being shown live on FIFA's YouTube channel and on FIFA.com
    https://www.youtube.com/user/FIFATV
    Cant find any info on this being geoblocked in US, but guess we will find out on Wednesday.

    I know this is old news now, but the CAF World Cup Qualifiers have all been on ESPN+. All of them. Hope people have had the chance to watch.
