The live: Lyon-Marseille live: the meeting is interrupted following a bottle throw on Dimitri Payet

Dimitri Payet had already been hit by a bottle during a match in Nice at the start of the season, in August. The meeting was interrupted in the 75th minute after the entry of some supporters on the field and an almost general fight between supporters, players of the two teams and members of the management of the two clubs, and it had not resumed.

Following this incident, the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) had, on September 8, sanctioned OGC Nice with three games behind closed doors. In addition, the Nice club (which led 1-0 at the time of the facts) had received two penalty points, one of which was suspended.

In total, this is the sixth time since the start of the season that a Ligue 1 meeting has been interrupted after overflows from supporters.
