However, it is one of the most anticipated matches of the season in Ligue 1. The clash of the Olympics, Lyon against Marseille. A match which enlivens both camps, the most recent example of which is the bottle of water thrown in the face of Dimitri Payet in November 2021, and leading to the immediate end of the meeting.
The Bouches-du-Rhône prefecture therefore decided not to play the meeting.
When the rivalry reaches the limits.
A complaint will be filed
Later in the evening on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais announced in a press release that it would “file a complaint in the coming days” and “support anyone who wishes to do the same”.
OL also assures its support to “its injured supporters”, confirming that “six supporters’ buses had also been targeted”.
OL “regrets that this type of situation occurs every year in Marseille and invites the authorities to take stock of the seriousness and repetition of this type of incident before an even more serious tragedy occurs.”
The former president of Lyon and current minority shareholder (9%), Jean-Michel Aulas, for his part called for exemplary sanctions, citing “incidents” which are repeated.
