Lille heading for Champs Lge after Lyon win

PARIS, May 6 (Reuters) - Ambitious Lille moved closer to securing a Champions League preliminary round berth with a 4-0 victory on Saturday over Ligue 1 title-winners Olympique Lyon who effectively fielded a B team.

With one game remaining, the northern side are third in the table on 61 points, two ahead of Olympique Marseille who were held to a 2-2 home draw by demoted Racing Strasbourg.

In the final round of matches next weekend, Marseille will need a win at runners-up Girondins Bordeaux and hope that Lille lose at fifth-placed Stade Rennes.

Lille opened the scoring against Lyon with a 35th-minute goal by midfielder Geoffrey Dernis after a nice one-two with Mathieu Bodmer.

After the interval, striker Peter Odemwingie struck twice in three minutes and Jean Makoun completed the rout in the dying minutes.

Lyon, who have already set a Ligue 1 points record of 81, rested goalkeeper Gregory Coupet, influential defenders Cris, captain Claudio Cacapa, midfielder Mahamdou Diarra and inspirational playmaker Juninho.
