It is from this Monday that the disciplinary committee will meet urgently to deal with the file of the match between Lens and Lille.
Due to the next day of the championship which will take place this Wednesday, the authorities will have to make some initial decisions. And in particular on the responsibilities of each club. The Lensois supporters are accused of having deployed a huge insulting tifo, while they had assured their leaders that it was a message of encouragement to their team. But above all about 150 supporters came out on the field during half-time to try to do battle with the Lille fans. The latter are accused of having thrown seats on the neighboring stand behind the goal, in response to provocations. Everyone passes the buck to each other, and the arguments of both camps are kept for the commission.
Two injured, two arrests
But for those who are finally asking for exemplary sanctions against supporters who obviously do not come to follow a football match or support their team, we will have to wait. There were indeed only two arrests during this North derby, announce the prefectural authorities. A Lille supporter who injured a CRS in the ankle by throwing him a seat, and another who had a smoke on him. A very poor record while six injured were deplored, including two who had to go to the emergency room for treatment, and that this confrontation could have turned out very badly if the police had not firmly repelled the Lensois supporters . While waiting for the verdict of the disciplinary committee, where Lens will especially have to explain his inability to contain his supporters, the troublemakers on both sides were able to return home without being worried on Saturday evening. At a time when voices are being raised against the impunity of supporters on the judicial level in these cases, these two arrests can leave you speechless, knowing that more than 80 seats were torn off and thrown on the Lille side, while 150 Lensois supporters entered the lawn.
