More Ligue 1 games can­celled

The New Paper - - SPORTS -

Au­thor­i­ties have can­celled this week­end’s match be­tween St Eti­enne and Olympique de Mar­seille – two of France’s big­gest teams – as con­cerns mount that anti-gov­ern­ment demon­stra­tions this week­end could turn vi­o­lent.

France’s Ligue 1 body said yes­ter­day that the match had been can­celled at the re­quest of lo­cal po­lice.

The can­cel­la­tion of the St Eti­enne-Mar­seille match fol­lows sim­i­lar de­ci­sions to scrap Monaco’s lo­cal derby against Nice and to­mor­row’s clash be­tween Paris Sain­tGer­main and Mont­pel­lier.
