Europa League: Riots in Lyon!

Big riots in Lyon ahead of the Europa League match Lyon vs. Besiktas.

Many thousand Besiktas supporters travelled to France for this match, many of them got tickets in normal stands close to the away sector. Before kick-off Turkish supporters clashed with home fans. Scared normal supporters of Lyon invaded the pitch to escape from the riots and match got delayed for a while.

Most of the Ultras and hooligans of Lyon were located on the opposite stand behind the other goal and therefore wasn't involved in this incident.

Earlier in the streets and outside the stadium there was a lot of trouble, especially involving Turkish supporters.
