Lyon have threatened not to play their Coupe de France semi-final against Sedan unless the game is rescheduled.

The Ligue 1 leaders are set to play the semi-final side at 9pm on May 7, three days before their top of the league clash with third-placed Nancy.

An official statement on the club´s official website read: "OL is against the decision of the Federation to play the Coupe de France game between Lyon and Sedan on Wednesday May 7 at 9pm, which would leave only three days to prepare for the game against Nancy, a game which is vital in the title race."
