Unsightly scenes in Ligue 1 in France: During the break, the Lens fans are looking for a confrontation with the guest supporters from Lille.

In the French league game between RC Lens and champions OSC Lille, the home fans stormed the pitch to get to the guest block. The “Derby du Nord” was continued after a temporary interruption, and abandoning the game was also up for debate.

During the half-time break, numerous Lens fans had successfully crossed the lawn in the direction of the Lille block before the referee interrupted the hustle and bustle and the players stayed in the dressing room for the time being. The background to the action is – apart from the derby rivalry – not yet known.

Several stewards had the situation under control after a few minutes. The league delegation and the referee ultimately decided to continue the game when the score was 0: 0 with the police deployed. Should there be further riots, it was communicated that the game should be stopped completely.

The game between Nice and Marseille was canceled

It is the second fan scandal in France within a few weeks. At the end of August there had been violent riots between fans of OGC Nice and players from Olympique Marseille, which led to the game being abandoned.

The trigger was Marseilles Dimitri Payet, who had thrown a plastic bottle back towards the home audience at a corner.
