Super Eagles Striker, Osimhen To Miss Champions League Next Season

Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen set to miss out from the UEFA Champions League action next season following the decision of the French Football Association.

Lille is fourth on the log and here just a point behind the third-placed Rennes.

The French league has recommended the freezing of the 2019-20 standings amid the Covid-19 crisis on Thursday (April 30).

With Paris Saint-Germain 12 points ahead of Marseille and Rennes, the FA decided to hand Paris Saint Germain the league title.

According to L’Equipe, the LFP’s board will ratify the recommendation on Thursday afternoon and effectively hand PSG their seventh title in the last eight years.

The decision would mean that second-placed Olympique de Marseille and third-placed Stade Rennais would be in next season’s Champions League with PSG. Lille, Stade de Reims, and Nice would qualify for the Europa League.

Amiens and Toulouse would be relegated with Ligue 2 leaders Lorient, and second-placed Lend, promoted to the elite.

“I think we have to accept the decisions that have been taken, in all sports and in all countries,” said PSG defender Thilo Kehrer on the club’s website earlier this week.

“I think the teams that are at the top of their leagues at the moment deserve to be there. If the decision is taken to call an end to the season then the title will be deserved too.”
