After the incidents that occurred on Sunday November 21 at Groupama Stadium during the meeting between Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille, the Disciplinary Commission of the Professional Football League (LFP) decided to put the case under investigation.

While awaiting its meeting on December 8, during which a final decision will be taken, it has decided to sanction the Rhone club with a closed-door match, against Reims, on Wednesday, December 1. On December 8, the disciplinary committee of the LFP will rule on the responsibility of Olympique Lyonnais in these incidents and on the fate of the match.

Sunday, the meeting was interrupted in the 4th minute after a bottle throw on the Marseillais Dimitri Payet. Hit in the temple, the player remained several minutes on the ground, treated by the OM doctors. The referee, Ruddy Buquet, had sent all the players to the locker room, before the match was definitively interrupted at 22:45, after long procrastination.

Jean-Michel Aulas, the president of the Rhone club, who had demanded withdrawals of points during the incidents in Nice and Lens, hopes this time to obtain leniency from the disciplinary committee: In Nice as in Lens, there had been an invasion of the field. Here, it was the act of an uncontrollable individual who was immediately challenged. We cannot generalize these acts “.
