EUROPA LEAGUE – Lyon supporters tried to invade the pitch after the defeat against West Ham

Chaotic scenes at Groupame Stadium tonight. First sportingly, because the Lyonnais were shaken by a surgical West Ham team (3-0) in this quarter-final second leg of the Europa League. Then because this result was the last straw in the eyes of the Lyon supporters. It all started with a banner, deployed in a turn at the end of the meeting. Simple and explicit”Go fuck yourself” could we read there. The tone was a harbinger of what was to follow.

As soon as the match was over, several dozen ultras tried to force their way onto the lawn, some with a smoke bomb in their hands. Stewards shaken behind the barriers, held firm. The safety nets made to prevent any projectile from arriving on the lawn too. During the mess, several Lyon players, having already experienced the invasion of the field made in Gones, hastened to join the locker room.
