PARIS (Reuters) - Memphis Depay struck twice to help Olympique Lyonnais clinch a Champions League spot with a 4-0 home demolition of Caen in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Dutchman Depay scored each side of the interval with Maxwel Cornet and Moussa Dembele also finding the back of the net to put third-placed Lyon on 69 points, four above fourth-placed St Etienne, who secured a Europa League berth with a 3-0 win over Nice.

Should Chelsea beat Arsenal in the Europa League final, Lyon will be spared the third qualifying round and go straight into the group stage of next season's Champions League.

Champions Paris St Germain thrashed lowly Dijon 4-0 at the Parc des Princes and Dijon will go into the relegation playoffs.
