Sunday evening will see semi-finals winners OM and ASSE fight it out for the inaugural EA Ligue 1 Games title just after Bordeaux and Montpellier conclude their stoush for third place. Watch it all live on FloSport.

OM had a double from France international Dimitri Payet to thank for the 2-1 win over Bordeaux, while fellow Bleu Mathieu Debuchy also struck twice for Les Verts in the 4-2 defeat of Montpellier to set up Sunday night's final at the Audi Field in Washington, D.C.

Pedigree

The sides, who each won their home fixture against the other in Ligue 1 Conforama last season, both have new head coaches - André Villas-Boas has taken the reins at OM and Ghislain Printant has stepped up from assistant to head honcho following the departure of Jean-Louis Gasset at ASSE - but are looking to their pedigrees as two of France's most successful clubs as they look to take inaugural gold in this unprecedented US showcase of French football.

Kick-off is at 21:00 EDT on Sunday evening (03:00 on Monday morning in France). Meanwhile Bordeaux and Montpellier will start the evening with the third-place play-off (18:00 EDT - midnight on Sunday in France), looking to follow through on the promise shown in their semi-finals against OM and ASSE.
