Lyon secure Champions League spot with win

Memphis Depay struck twice to help Olympique Lyonnais clinch a Champions League spot with a 4-0 home demolition of Caen in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Maxwel Cornet and Moussa Dembele also scored to put third-placed Lyon on 69 points, four above fourth-placed St Etienne, who secured a Europa League berth with a 3-0 win over Nice.

Should Chelsea beat Arsenal in the Europa League final, Lyon will be spared the third qualifying round and go straight into the group stage of next season's Champions League.

A few hours after the OL women notched a sixth Champions League title, the men secured their place in next season's competition.

Dutchman Depay put them ahead after being set up by Cornet, who doubled the tally with a curled shot before Dembele, who missed a first-half penalty, added a third and Depay volleyed home the fourth.

Lyon cannot finish second, however, as Lille, who crushed Angers 5-0, have 75 points.
