The French league was cut short due coronavirus outbreak by the French football league at the end of April with Paris Saint-Germain declared the winner but the French highest court has declared Amiens and Toulouse not relegated and the 2 newly promoted teams are set to join the league to make it 22 teams tournament.
The coronavirus pandemic keeps changing football as we know it, changes which include the absence of fans, cooling break twice before the end of 90 minutes, 5 players substitution and we might have another in the French league with the inclusion of 2 teams from Ligue 2 to make the tournament 22 teams.
After the cancellation of all football activities in France in April, Lyon who finished 7th in the final table decided by a point-per-game calculation and missed out on European qualification join the potentially relegated Amiens and Toulouse in launching the legal action.
The court ruled on the 9th of June that Ligue 1 would not recommence but Amiens and Toulouse are spared of relegation which could see the tournament expand.
The French league has the right to appeal the verdict of expanding the top-flight teams but such action has not been taken yet.
This is a miracle to Toulouse, who had won just one league point match since they defeated Lille 2-1 back in October, which came in a goalless match against Amiens.
