Lyon snatch UCL spot

Lyon clinched a place in next season's UEFA Champions League proper tonight after Lille slipped up.

Les Gones went into the final day of the season in the Champions League qualifying spots and needed to beat Le Mans and hope Lille lost at Lorient to sneak second position. And that is exactly what happened.

Goals from Bafetimbi Gomis and Miralem Pjanic were enough for Claude Puel's men to see off already-relegated Le Mans while Lille squandered a one-goal lead on their way to a costly defeat at Lorient.

The story is too old to be commented.

Good for Lyon after a tough season they made it.
Next year they will win the league title.
