The disciplinary commission of the French League (LFP) said Lyon must play their Ligue 1 home games behind closed doors until it rules on Sunday’s abandoned match against Marseille. 

The French ‘Olympico’ was¬†called off¬†almost two hours after being suspended when Marseille’s Dimitri Payet was hit by a bottle thrown from the Groupama Stadium stands.

Referee Ruddy Buquet sent the players to the dressing room after Payet fell to the ground as he was preparing to take a corner-kick.

This was criticised by the LFP, which called for an emergency meeting of its disciplinary panel on Monday, resulting in Lyon playing home matches without spectators, starting with next Wednesday’s game against Stade de Reims.
