SportsTalk, October 30. Due to violent incidents, the match between Marseille and Lyon was postponed. Lyon coach Grosso suffered a head injury. According to reports from L’Equipe and other news channels, some fans from both extremes even gave the Marseille fans Nazi salutes and imitated monkey calls to insult them.
Reports stated that before the start of the game, 600 Lyon fans were forced to get off the bus near the Marseille home ground after the bus was attacked. The mood was very angry and depressed, and some of the fans even showed a desire to fight with the Marseille fans. However, under police control, they were finally able to arrive at the visitors’ area of the Jean Bouin Stand shortly before 8pm under relatively calm circumstances.
But as soon as they arrived at the stadium seats, they were taunted by Marseille fans, some of whom even sang to Lyon fans Anti-gay (gay) song, which led to more than 10 Lyon fans, they grabbed the barbed wire and even almost bent it.
In addition, according to reports from other channels, some of the extreme Lyon fans made the same move as they did during the game against Reims on October 1. In order to avoid irrational behavior, these fans belong to the Mezza Lyon group close to the right. It is reported that these fans made some racist gestures to Marseille fans, such as imitating monkeys, performing Nazi salutes, showing passports, etc. Their behavior was filmed and the vast majority of Lyon fans disapproved of the actions of a small number of Lyon fans. The Lyon fans who were banned from entering the stadium may be one of these fans.
