It’s a shock for two teams that dream of Europe. For the first match of this 36th day of Ligue 1, Lyon (7th) receives Monaco (4th), Friday May 19 at Groupama Stadium.

After their defeat last week in Clermont (1-2), Les Gones are now four points behind fifth place, synonymous with qualification for the Europa League conference. “For Europe, it’s grated”, was even sorry Laurent Blanc, the Lyon coach, after the defeat against Clermont (0-1). The Lyonnais must impose themselves if they want to maintain the hope of playing in European competition next year. With four points in four games, Monaco is now too far behind Marseille and Lens in the race for the Champions League. The Principality club hopes to consolidate its fourth place, qualifying for the Europa League.
