The game between Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille was interrupted in the fourth minute due to the behavior of the local fans. One of the fans hit Dimitri Payet with a bottle in the head.
At the end of the 14th round of the French Ligue 1 Olympique Lyon was Olympique de Marseille. Arkadiusz Milik was in the starting line-up of the guests.
The atmosphere in the stands was very hot from the very beginning. However, it was hard to expect that the referee would stop the game in the fourth minute.
The Marseilles then had a corner. Dimitri Payet, in charge of the set-pieces for the away team, approached the ball placed at the end line.
One of the fans threw a bottle full of water at the Frenchman. He hit the head of a footballer who fell on the pitch and was treated by doctors.
The referee immediately decided to stop the game and invited the players of both teams to the dressing room. So far, it has not been decided whether the competition will be resumed.
This is not the first situation of this type in Ligue 1 this season. Another away game from Marseille – with Nice has already been interrupted. They were completed on a different date and one point was deducted from the hosts.
