ZIMBABWE international Tino Kadewere may miss out on the 2020/21 UEFA Champions league if his parent club Lyon continue to sing the blues.

On Sunday, the seven-time French champions lost 4-2 to PSG, a defeat that left Lyon are now ninth on the log with 33 points, eight points behind third-placed Rennes.

Kadewere, who will join Lyon in the summer, was bought from Le Havre before being loaned back for six months.

The Warriors striker is expected to replace Manchester United and Chelsea target Moussa Dembele.

Against PSG, Lyon had a slow start, allowing their opponents to lead through Angel di Maria, Kylian Mbappe and a Fernando Marcal’s own goal.

Martin Terrier and Moussa Dembele got Lyon back in the game but Edinson Cavani gave PSG the insurance goal to go 12-point clear at the top.
