The two pacesetters at the top of the championship are both well placed to return to the Premier League, with a healthy gap between them, and the chasing pack.
The EFL and the Premier League remained determined to finish the season, but some clubs faced with the relegation of the elite argued that without the matches, it would be unfair to see teams go up or down.
It is understood that all options were at stake for the 23 Ligue 1 clubs, before the options were reduced.
According to the Telegraph, the teams will only have the choice between a resolution of points per match or the games being over, any notion of nullity or promotions being canceled, not on the agenda.
Earlier this month, League Two clubs voted to end the season immediately, with promotion and relegation decided on a weighted table of points per game.
