Après OM - OL (0-3) : Certifié européen pour la 23ème fois de suite !
After Sunday's impressive display at the Velodrome, Lyon are guaranteed to play in European competition next season.

Thanks to their superb 3-0 win at Marseille over the weekend, Olympique Lyonnais have accumulated enough points (66) to assure themselves a top-four finish in League 1 Conforama this season. With two matches remaining, Les Gones sit eight points clear of fifth-place Montpellier and are therefore guaranteed to play in a European competition for the 23th time in a row! An exceptional feat for French football that dates back to the 1997-98 season!

Now, Bruno Genesio and company will try to take it one step further by qualifying for the Champions League. They could wrap it up this weekend with a win over Caen...
