L’OL seul club encore en lice dans toutes les compétitions européennes
Olympique Lyonnais is the last club in Europe to remain qualified in all European competitions: Champions League, Women Champions League and Youth League.

OL has once again confirmed its status as a European regular. While the 2019-20 season was temporarily suspended in March due to the health crisis affecting the world, Lyon's teams are all still involved in the biggest continental competitions thanks to their progress into the knockout rounds. This is a major performance; OL is quite simply the last club in the running in all European competitions in this case, with the presence of both its professional male and female teams, and its U19 side.

As a reminder, the players of Rudi Garcia are still playing in the Champions League, waiting for the Round of 16 return leg away to Juventus after a first leg won 1-0 at Groupama Stadium. For their part, the players of Jean-Luc Vasseur must play their quarterfinal of the Womens Champions League against Bayern Munich while the U19 team coached by Eric Hély and Pierre Chavrondier must face Salzburg in the quarterfinals of the Youth League, the equivalent of the Champions League for youth teams. Here's hoping that all the proteges of Jean-Michel Aulas can restart their European runs.
