UEFA Opens Disciplinary Cases Over Lyon v Besiktas Europa League Game Violence

21 April 2017, 07:14 | Andy Ferguson

Huge swathes of Lyon fans have been forced to flee onto the Parc Olympique Lyonnais pitch to escape flares thrown by their Besiktas counterparts.

Lyon's deputy chief legal director Vincent Ponsot said on Friday "it's clear we were victims of aggression from Turkish supporters".

15,000 traveling Besiktas fans resulted in heightened security around Lyon, but that hasn't stopped rival supporters from clashing in the streets, in the stadium and with police.

On the day of the game fans clashed clashed with French police all afternoon ahead of the quarter-final tie.

The Lyon team was getting ready to play Besiktas, a team from Turkey, when the game was delayed because of the fans, notes France 24.

Ryan Babel gave the away side the lead to the delight of the Turkish fans in attendance when the match finally got underway.

Fans were only allowed to enter the stadium with clothing, banners and flags that represented their country.

"With the intense fireworks, severe injuries and homemade bombs exploding around them our fans had only one option, to take refuge on the pitch". "I do not know what to do - to play behind closed doors or elsewhere", he told AFP.

It was feared before the match that the game could be used for a political statement ahead of Sunday's Turkish referendum, which may increase the powers held by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "It would be very unsafe to take on this team (in presence of) the same supporters as tonight".

It happened in Lyon, France - where Lyon was set to take on Turkish club Bestikas in the Europa League quarterfinals.

Many of them had already run a gauntlet of violence outside the ground where police used teargas to quell outbreaks of fighting and vandalism.
