Paris St Germain(PSG) have been awarded the league title after the termination of the French league season following a directive from the French Prime Minister that all sporting activities will be suspended till September.
This is the French club’s seventh title in eigth years.
The LFP’s (Ligue de Football Professionnel)’s plan before the Prime Minister’s decision was to restart the league in June as the lockdown in France was to be lifted on May 11 but the political leader’s address to the national assembly stopped the plan from fruition.
As a result of the points per game classification used by the LFP, Lyon is set to miss the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 1997 with Marseille and Rennes securing Champions League spots for next season. Meanwhile, Lille, Reims and Nice have booked their places in the Europa League for next season.
On the other hand, Amiens and Toulouse have been relegated to Ligue 2 with Lorient and Lens gaining promotion to Ligue 1.
France has become the third country to call off its football season after Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League and Netherlands’ Eredivisie
