why the fight for Europe between Lens, OL and OM looks crazy

The last day of Ligue 1 played this Sunday will offer a final battle between Lens, OL and OM for the last European place(s), even if everything will not be settled before next week.

The last dance promises to be electric. This Sunday, Ligue 1 definitively lowers the curtain for the 2023-2024 season and there are still many issues at stake, particularly regarding the fight for the last European place(s) between Lens ( 6th, 50 points), OL (7th, 50 points) and OM (8th, 47 points). Before the kickoff of the 34th day at 9 p.m., only 6th place qualifies for the Europa Conference League play-offs.

But the seventh could also become one depending on the scenario of the Coupe de France final between PSG and OL on the next 25th. If Paris wins, or if Lyon triumphs and finishes in the top 6 in Ligue 1, this sixth place will qualify for the Europa League and the seventh in Ligue 1 will be sent to the Europa Conference League.

Lens has its destiny in its hands

Before Montpellier receives Bollaert, the Lensois have their destiny in their hands. With three points ahead of OM and a better goal difference than OL (+8 against -7), the Sang et Or would secure this 6th place in the event of success against the Héraultais. A draw would leave them within gunshot of Lyon, which hosts Strasbourg, but far from Marseille. If Les Gones manages to take 6th place, they would play in the Europa League whatever happens (in the event of a defeat against PSG in the Coupe de France or thanks to a victory on May 25 against the capital club ). Lens would slip to 7th but would be assured of playing in the Europa Conference League.

At Groupama Stadium, OL only need a draw to secure at least 7th place. It remains to be seen whether it will be the Europa League (in the event of victory in the Coupe de France final) or the Europa Conference League (in the event of defeat against PSG in a week).

For its part, Marseille will have to fill its gaps on the road to find hope on the Le Havre pitch, despite a higher goal difference than its rivals (+10). With only two successes in 16 matches away from home this season, the Phocaeans will have to win and hope for a defeat from their direct competitors to finish 6th. If they take seventh place and Lyon finishes eighth (win or draw for Lens, defeat for Lyon combined with a victory against Le Havre), they will have to support PSG in the Coupe de France final to hope to be in the Europa Conference League. If they are seventh and Lyon finishes sixth (win or draw for Lyon, defeat for Lens combined with a victory against Le Havre), they will be assured of being in the Europa Conference League.
