That evening, several thousand fans of the German club had made the trip to the Côte d’Azur to follow this match of the group stage of the C4 but some of them were not there simply to support their team. favourite. FC Cologne supporters had indeed caused quite a mess in the city center of Nice and then in the stands, causing clashes with Aiglons supporters. As host of this meeting, OGC Nice had to ensure its security, as UEFA reminds us. The Nice club received a travel ban on its supporters for the C4 match against FC Slovacko, scheduled for October 6. the return match against the Czech club will mainly be played behind closed doors at the Allianz Riviera, which will necessarily penalize the Aiglons in this race to the round of 16.

OM heavily sanctioned

As the leaders of Olympique de Marseille feared, the Olympian club was heavily sanctioned by UEFA. The incidents that occurred on the sidelines of the reception of Frankfurt in the Champions League will cost the Marseille club dearly. Already badly embarked on this group stage of the C1 (two defeats in two games), OM will not be able to count on the support of their supporters during the next home game. The match against Sporting Lisbon will indeed be played behind closed doors by revocation of the reprieve. The Marseille club was already under threat from UEFA after various incidents that occurred last season and then in London during the trip to Spurs (2-0). The penalty does not stop there since the North Bend will also be closed for the reception of Tottenham.
