A point for the home side means qualification for European competition

LOSC Lille may have crashed out of the UEFA Europa Conference League this season after a quarter-final showdown with Aston Villa but they can come back. A point in this game will ensure their return to European competition next season as it guarantees them UEFA Europa League football for next term. Last game in Ligue 1, Les Dogues collected all three points after a 2-1 comeback win over FC Metz.

Olympique Lyonnais have an outsider chance of breaching the qualification spots of European places from the French first tier. Currently, they are eighth in the league. Last game, Les Gones showed their mettle by beating second-placed AS Monaco with a 3-2 scoreline. After the final three games of the league, Pierre Sage’s men have a Coupe de France final showdown with Paris Saint-Germain.
