As a result Lorient and Lens are promoted to Ligue 1 whilst Amiens and Toulouse are relegated to Ligue 2 on the basis of their current standings in the table.

The Chief Executive of the French League, Didier Quillot quoted “We have decided there would be two promotions and two relegations. There might be appeals but our decisions are solid.”

The current fate for the other major leagues remains uncertain as ever. The Premier League has yet to unveil its plans for English football’s top flight. No news regarding the outcome of the league has been dictated since it was suspended back in March due to the coronavirus crisis.

Meanwhile Germany’s top flight have stated they are set to return for May 9th, the Bundesliga however are awaiting approval from that of the government as to whether they can do so.

In Spain La Liga are currently working towards its clubs returning back to training as soon as possible after being given the green light to do so by the Spanish government. The aim is a potential restart in mid-June with the remaining matches being played behind closed doors.
