Despite the positive developments of some of the biggest European domestic leagues, Ligue 1 of France remains at its final decision to end the league as it is. The decision to end the Ligue 1 of 2019/2020 season was made based on the government’s decision back in April 2020. It was declared by the government that there will be no professional sports competitions allowed in France before September 2020. It means that the possible start of Ligue 1 will only be for the new season of 2020/2021 after the summer transfer window. That is considered to be an unfortunate decision for some within the French football community.
Lyon is one of the top clubs in French football that is affected by that decision greatly. The club tried to overrule that decision of the termination of the league with the current standing. The main reason for that appeal is the fact that Lyon is currently sitting on the 7th spot of the league standing. That means Lyon will not be able to enter European competitions the next season. If the league is to be restarted, Lyon may grab the spot for European competitions in the following season. The appeal has been made but unfortunately, it is rejected by the highest administrative body of France.
With the rejection of Lyon’s appeal, finally, Lyon will end the league in 7th place without the chance to compete in the European competitions next season. Ligue 1 has 10 games remaining that according to Lyon is a decent chance to go up some spots in the standing. The decision of the government finalized the football competitions in France but the final of the French cup. The finals are the exceptions since the fixtures are scheduled to be held in July and August in which the respective teams can prepare. agen sbobet casino
