PARIS (AP) – The French league has banned supporters of Lille and Marseille from going to away games for the remainder of the year following violence in recent matches.
The LFP disciplinary committee delivered its verdicts at midnight on Wednesday, granting each club a suspended one point deduction.
Lens was also given a suspended point deduction and ordered to play two home games without fans. Angers has closed part of its stadium for two games. Both clubs had already served those sentences, but Angers was also fined 20,000 euros ($ 23,000).
Last month, around fifty Marseille supporters rushed onto the pitch and faced their Angevin counterparts in their stands at the final whistle.
A few days earlier, supporters snatched seats and threw themselves on them at half-time during the Lens-Lille north derby. The match was interrupted for 30 minutes but continued.
In August, there was serious unrest during the Nice-Marseille game, which was suspended and will be replayed on October 27.
The problematic fan mess in France resurfaced again last Thursday, when the Europa League match between Marseille and Galatasaray was put on hold for around 10 minutes after rival supporters threw flares and firecrackers at each other at the stadium. Velodrome.
