Nice-Marseille punishments assessed after pitch invasion chaos

 The LFP has reacted to violent scenes on Sunday that led to the abandonment of a Ligue 1 match

The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) has determined that Nice's next match will take place behind closed doors following the chaos that marred Sunday's meeting with Marseille. 

Referee Benoit Bastien was forced to abandon the game midway through the second half after violence from both fans and players and staff on the pitch; because Marseille players refused to return from the dressing room, they were assigned a 3-0 forfeit defeat.

Further sanctions are expected next month, but for now Nice supporters will not be able to attend the Allianz Rivera for the club's upcoming clash with Bordeaux.
