It’s tense in front of the stadium

It’s getting a little tense in front of the stadium. Parisian supporters arriving from the Lyon side are whistled and insulted. Often escorted by security. Police on horseback moved into position to create a barrier.


Parisian buses leave again

The Parisian buses have all just left the toll booth to take the road towards the stadium. They still don’t know if they will be able to attend the match.


Families caught in fights

Frozen situation at the toll. Families and children were also on some buses, they grouped together so as not to find themselves in the middle of the fights


Beginning of the return to calm

The situation is finally calming down. The Lyonnais are placed in a field, surrounded by CRS. A blockade resumed a few minutes ago because OL supporters stole equipment from Parisian buses (for the tifo).


Buses managed to leave

A few buses (very few) managed to leave…some with broken windows…But the police escorts did not always follow. Situation still tense.


Highway blocked in both directions

The highway has just been blocked in both directions. Fights are still going on.


Incidents continue

The situation is still tense there. OL supporters, dressed in white for the occasion, were scattered across the motorway area, which forced the motorway to be cut off.

Several CRS companies are on site, they were to escort the buses to Lille, to restore calm. An OL supporter was also beaten up on the road by Parisian fans, most of them wearing hoods. Three buses are on fire.

The fire from the buses started under the roof of the toll booth, releasing black smoke visible for several kilometers.

For the moment no results.


General brawl on a motorway rest area between Parisian and Lyon supporters

A general fight broke out at a motorway rest area near the Fresnes toll booth on the A1. The buses of the Parisian ultras had arranged to meet. But buses from Lyon arrived at the last minute to everyone’s surprise. The CRS were forced to use tear gas. The situation seems to be stabilizing.

The probable composition of OL: Perri – Mata, O’Brien, Caleta-Car, Tagliafico – Matic – Cherki, Caqueret, Tolisso, Benrahma – Lacazette

The probable composition of PSG

PSG should appear with its main starters to face Lyon on Saturday evening in the final of the Coupe de France. If Luis Enrique confirmed the return of Kylian Mbappé, a small doubt concerns the Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi.
