The country’s Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe announced that no sporting events will be held until September.

The cancellation may still allow Paris Saint-Germain to finish their Champions League campaign with the capital club already in the quarter-finals before a touted return of the competition that month.

As it stands, are top of the Ligue 1 table with 68 points from 27 matches played. Marseille are second with 56 points having played one match more – meaning PSG will be denied an almost certain league crown if the season is declared null and void.

The Eredivisie season was cancelled last week, with no promotion or relegation and no title awarded.

UEFA has said that it wants European entrants decided on sporting merit where possible, but also acknowledged that leagues may be forced to consider cancelling their 2019-20 seasons due to financial pressures or directives from governments.
