Ligue 1 set to cut season short

It’s reported the French Government will announce that the 2019-20 Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 season is already over, as no games will be allowed until August.

According to RMC Sport, the statement will be made later this afternoon or this evening.

The decision will become inevitable if the Government confirm no matches can be played – even behind closed doors – until August because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The French season usually begins in August, so they would simply terminate the 2019-20 campaign here and begin 2020-21.

The most recent match played before the lockdown was on March 8 and Paris Saint-Germain are 12 points clear of Olympique Marseille, despite having a game in hand.

Stade Rennais and Lille follow in third and fourth, but giants like Olympique Lyonnais are only in seventh place.

Meetings will be held next month to decide how to assign the title, European and relegation places.
