The Champions League match between Shakhtar Donetsk and French Olympique Lyonnais could not take place because of inappropriate conduct of their fans at the NSC “Olympic”.
This is reported styler.rbc.ua
So, on the Central podium of the stadium, the fans (likely Dynamo – rivals Shakhtar) hung a huge banner on which was written: “a miner, you’re not welcome here”. The canvas hung up before the starting whistle.
In addition, before the start of the match when the players were already on the field, and the judge was prepared to give the signal to start the important for both teams of the match, unidentified persons threw fire on the field. Because of this, the beginning of the match was delayed.
Note that if the unrest continued, the judge would have full right to take the team stands in the room.
Assessment of the actions of the fans now is to give law enforcement authorities and UEFA. It is possible that the stadium disqualifiziert and the next match in “Olympic” will be held without spectators.
Recall that in the final round of the most prestigious club tournament of the continent “Shakhtar” has missed a victory over “lion” and left the Champions League. Now “miners” in the spring will play in the Europa League.
We also wrote that before that football match, the police detained 27 people who “provoke law enforcement” near the sports complex.
