Madness in France: Nice fans take to the pitch to attack Marseille players

Radical Nice supporters jumped onto the Allianz Riviera pitch to attack the Marseille players , so the match was interrupted in the absence of a quarter of an hour to go.

The fans, in the 74th minute, invaded the pitch and headed towards the visiting players. The situation caused a general brawl and the players left the field of play.

The situation arose when Dimitri Payet was going to throw a corner kick and returned a bottle thrown earlier from the north end, where the radical followers of the Nicaraguan cadre are located. Many fans in the area passed the security check and burst onto the grass.

The referee, Benoit Bastien, provisionally suspended the match, which was going ahead with Nice (1-0) after a goal scored in the 49th minute by Danish Kasper Dolberg.
