The UEFA disciplinary committee has opened an investigation against OL and OM after the incidents caused by supporters in the Europa League.
On Thursday, September 30, Lyon and Marseille played in the Europa League, respectively against Brondby and Galatasaray.
These two matches were marked by incidents provoked by supporters. According to our colleagues from the newspaper The team, the UEFA disciplinary committee has announced that it is opening an investigation into the two French clubs and that it will study the facts on October 18 before delivering its verdict on October 22.
OM is accused of using pyrotechnics, throwing objects between the stands and onto the field, as well as blocking passages inside the Velodrome stadium.
Not to miss
The match between OM and Galatasaray was also interrupted for eight minutes and after the match, clashes erupted on the forecourt of the Vélodrome. Four police officers were injured, two OM supporters and three Galatasaray supporters were arrested.
For its part, OL must explain themselves about an “invasion of the ground” and obstructions of passages inside the Parc OL. In addition, seven supporters were arrested during the Lyon-Brondby match.
It is difficult to say if the two French clubs will be sanctioned and if so, in what way. UEFA can impose a simple fine or strike hard by imposing a closed door.
