a suspended withdrawal point for Marseille, the Sco also sanctioned

The disciplinary committee of the League decided on Wednesday the incidents that punctuated the Ligue 1 meeting between Angers and OM (0-0). Marseille was notably hit with a suspended withdrawal point.

The incidents follow one another in Ligue 1, the disciplinary committees of the LFP too. This Wednesday, the disciplinary body of the League had two cases to decide after the overflows of Lens-Lille and Angers-OM. This meeting at the Raymond-Kopa stadium was punctuated by an invasion of the field of supporters of both teams and clashes between them.

The verdict of the disciplinary committee of the LFP was delivered this Wednesday, late in the evening. Marseille gets a suspended withdrawal point. A reprieve that runs for a year. The visitors’ area, when the OM is traveling, is also closed until December 31. For the point to be withdrawn, “substantially equivalent facts will have to occur”.

A fine for Angers

Angers is sanctioned with a closure of the Coubertin stand for two games, one of which is suspended. The match affected by the farm has already been purged. The Sco also receives a firm fine of 20,000 euros.

After this meeting, the public prosecutor of Angers had let it be known that two people had been arrested after the incidents. “A Marseille supporter from Pays de la Loire was arrested for throwing smoke at the start of the match and another for entering the lawn after the meeting,” said Éric Bouillard. At the start of the match, smoke bombs were thrown on both sides, then there were some ‘chambers’ during the match, in particular because Marseille supporters entered the kop d’Angers stand.

Angers is currently in 4th place with 16 points ahead of OM (14 pts). A Marseille counter now under the threat of new overflows from Olympian supporters.
