Osimhen Set To Resume Ligue 1 On June 17, To Complete Season By July 25

Osimhen Resume Ligue 1 June 17

Super Eagles top striker and Lille of France forward, Victor Osimhen is set to return to action as Ligue 1 chiefs plan to resume the 2019-20 season on June 17, with a scheduled end to the campaign a month later on July 25.

According to French publication L'Equipe, clubs face playing every three days to ensure enough time for the relegation and promotion play-offs.

That would also allow those clubs competing in Europe to wrap up the Champions League and Europa League competitions following a UEFA proposal to play ties during August.

In a statement released to L'Equipe on Monday, following a meeting held last Friday, the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) confirmed that the intention is to stage fixtures again from that date but it was not made clear if games would be played behind closed doors.
