LEAGUE 1 – Marseille appeal rejected after incidents during OL-OM

The French Football Federation supported the choice of the disciplinary commission of the Professional Football League (LFP) to replay the OL-OM match, according to information from L’Equipe. The Marseillais had contested this decision with the FFF. As a reminder, the meeting was interrupted after a bottle of water was thrown at Dimitri Payet from the stands. Lyon also received a penalty point in the Ligue 1 standings. The postponement date of the match remains to be determined.

According to’AFP, the Higher Appeal Commission of the Federation (FFF) ruled the appeal “inadmissible“because OM was”not concerned“by the initial disciplinary sanctions, according to a source with knowledge of the file. The OM had requested, in a document sent to the disciplinary committee of the LFP and whose‘AFP has had knowledge, a sentence “obviously greater than two points, one of which is suspended, the loss of points being inevitable“. The management of the Marseille club also hoped to win the match on the green carpet. Last recourse for OM: the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), empowered to try to reconcile the two parties. OL, defender of the thesis of “the individual and isolated act“, also regretted in a press release “a very heavy sanction”, but had not appealed to the FFF.
