Taking advantage of PSG’s victory in the Coupe de la Ligue on Friday evening, Stade de Reims qualified for the second preliminary round of the Europa League. The PSG victory in the Coupe de la Ligue final delighted the Rémois, sixth in Ligue 1. The Stade de Reims, fifty-seven years after its last participation in a European Cup, is indeed qualified for the second preliminary round of the Europa League. The road will be long to reach the group stage but half as long as in previous seasons. David Guion’s team will have to pass the second round, then the third round and finally the jump-off to reach the group stage, but it will be on a dry game each time, and not on a clash by matches home and away. The schedule has been reduced due to the health crisis. Reims is therefore only three matches away from playing the Europa League, the real one.
