  • Europa League tie delayed by pitch invasion and violence

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas expresses concern over next week's trip to Besiktas after crowd trouble during Thursday's Europa League quarter-final first leg in France.

Lyon supporters poured onto the pitch as they attempted to protect themselves from firecrackers and other objects raining down from the stands above.

With time running out, Corentin Tolisso levelled from close range and Lyon's turnaround was completed inside two minutes as the veteran Morel struck to earn Les Gones a 2-1 first-leg lead.

15 minutes into the game at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, the Turkish fans started a fight with the French fans.

The trouble was concentrated in a section behind one goal housing Besiktas fans, and followed clashes between rival groups on the streets.

There is a return match scheduled for April 20 in Istanbul, which reportedly has a hostile reputation against visiting fans.

Derrick Favors was forced into a much bigger role when Rudy went down, and in Game 1 , he did exactly what he was supposed to. If not, the Clippers will have a much easier time getting things under control, and that starts with a game three victory.


The incidents outside and within Lyon's stadium occurred despite UEFA increasing security after Tuesday's explosion ahead of Borussia Dortmund's UEFA Champions League tie against Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, per the reports.

A violent altercation broke out in the stands minutes before a major European soccer match was set to begin. "I do not know what to do - to play behind closed doors or elsewhere", he told AFP. "It would be very unsafe to take on this team (in presence of) the same supporters as tonight".

"We don't go into football to experience things like that".

Pinto then tweeted: "Authorities at Stade de Lyon confirm @Europa League match between @OL and @Besiktas can take place".

The ill-feeling between PSG and Galatasaray still lingers.

Stewards looked to be injured from the violence as police and medics tried to safely take them away from the violence.
