Tottenham-OM: clashes between Marseille and English supporters in the stands, UEFA takes over the file


A tense post-match in London. Clashes broke out between supporters of OM and Tottenham in the wake of Marseille’s defeat (2-0) on Wednesday September 7 on the lawn of the English. According to RMC Sport, some of them tried to rub shoulders with their Spurs counterparts shortly after the final whistle. Projectiles, in particular bottles and a smoke bomb, were launched from the parking lot of OM. A banner displayed in the stadium in LGBT colors was also torn down by some Marseille supporters.

The team and several British media evoke a crowd movement of Provençal fans in the direction of the lawn. The stewards intervened between the stands and the billboards, and the police also deployed to calm the spirits. No police report of the evening has yet been communicated.

These scenes, in particular the throwing of smoke in the ranks of British supporters, could be worth sanctions to the Marseille club from UEFA. The latter opened disciplinary proceedings on Thursday, and its disciplinary committee could blow up the match behind closed doors with a suspended sentence for the Marseillais if it considers that there is a recurrence. The Disciplinary Committee imposed a fine of 40,000 euros in June and a suspended meeting behind closed doors after the incidents at the Vélodrome during the semi-final return of the Europa League Conference in May against Feyenoord Rotterdam.

Marseille, which was making its return to the Champions League this season, stood up to Tottenham for a long time this Wednesday evening, before cracking at the end of the game on a brace from the Brazilian Richarlison. Igor Tudor’s men had previously been reduced to ten after defender Chancel Mbemba was sent off for a tackle on Korea’s Son. They will host Eintracht Frankfurt, heavily beaten on their lawn by Sporting (0-3), Tuesday September 6 at the Vélodrome.
