Champions League, a new sanction falls on Marseille

OM management could not let such acts go unpunished. He sanctioned the supporters after the incidents against Frankfurt.

OM: 17 Marseille supporters sanctioned after Frankfurt

It is a second blow for the Marseillais, this time sanctioned by their own club. After the UEFA Disciplinary Committee, which has already decided to impose a total camera at the Olympique de Marseille for their next Champions League match after the violent events that occurred during the OM-Frankfurt clash (0-1) on September 13 at the Vélodrome stadium, it is up to the Marseille management to radically sanction certain ultras.

According to the latest information from RTL, Olympique de Marseille has just suspended the affiliations of 17 fans for two years. This restriction would be linked to the stoning of the German team bus and the use of smoke bombs on the sidelines of the match. If the Marseille management attaches great importance to a permanent and constructive dialogue with the supporters’ associations, it can only strongly condemn all “forms of violence”. This measure is not only intended to punish the perpetrators of these acts, but above all the OM wants to prevent further excesses during these home games.

OM deprived of his public for the reception of Sporting

After two years of absence, Olympique de Marseille’s return to the Champions League is disappointing at the moment. The Marseille club is still unable to succeed again in this competition. OM have conceded two defeats in two days and find themselves bottom of Group D. To maintain their chances of qualifying for the next round, the team from Marseille will need to win duringa double confrontation against Sporting de Portugal.

Banned by UEFA, Marseille will be without the support of the public at the Vélodrome when they host the Portuguese club on 4 October, counting for matchday three of the Champions League group stage. In addition, North Bend will also be closed for Tottenham’s reception on November 1 due to incidents during the first leg in London. The Marseille club thus pays dearly for the disasters of its fans.
