Lille have now secured a place in the Europa league knockout round after beating Lille 3-1 at home to Vitesse Arnhem.

The champions earned a point from their first-leg defeat at the hands of the Ligue 1 leaders thanks to a stoppage time penalty from Philippe Senderos.

And with a 4-0 victory over the French side in the first leg, Lille now lead Group A with seven points from two games.

The result means they are three points ahead of PSG, who are currently fifth in the table and are two points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

The first leg at the Stade de France was marred by the controversial moment when referee Jean-Marc Vallee made a red card to deny Barcelona a penalty.

The second leg was a different story with the hosts winning 1-0 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Tuesday night, before Lille’s last gasp effort was saved by the same referee.

The match was played in a relatively relaxed fashion, with both sides having full-backs in the starting line-up.

But the result did not change anything for PSG as they remain top of the table, six points ahead and seven points clear of Lille in the standings.

The Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Inter Milan is being played at the Allianz Arena in Paris on Thursday.
