PSG crowned French champions

PSG crowned French champions

The French prime minister announced this week that sport would not take place in the country until the end of August, scuppering plans to finish the 2019-20 season behind closed doors.

France has the world's fourth-highest death toll from the virus - behind the United States, Italy and Spain - with almost 23,300 deaths reported.

The legislature of the French football club governing body, the LFP, this Thursday morning took the decision to formally end the 2019/20 season.

In order to qualify for Europe, Lyon would need to hope the Coupe de la Ligue final against PSG goes ahead and they take the trophy, or that they win the UEFA Champions League.

"If it is not possible to play in France we will play our matches overseas, subject to the best conditions for our players and the safety of all our staff".

"Olympique Lyonnais would sincerely like to congratulate the title winners, PSG in Ligue 1 and Lorient in Ligue 2, who were proclaimed champions today, and hope that OL Féminin can soon have the same consecration", reads a statement on the club's website.

Large gatherings remain banned until September with more than 24,000 people having died from the virus in France, one of the highest death rates worldwide. Health, as the government has always said, must be everyone's priority.

PSG are to play against St Etienne in the Cup final and Olympique Lyonnais in the League Cup final.

The complicated part is the Europa League: Lille, Reims and Nice finished fourth, fifth and sixth respectively. We have played twice against Paris (for two losses), while Rennes, who are one point behind in the league, have only played them once.

If Neymar and Co were to make it through to the Champions League final, it could leave them facing the prospect of five huge European ties and two cup finals in a month.

At the bottom of the standings, last-place Toulouse and 19th-place Amiens were relegated while second-division leader Lorient and second-place Lens were promoted.

This week club president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed his idea for a play-off to decide the rest of the Ligue 1 season, and said the games could be played in August.
