The Ligue 1 match between AS Monaco and OGC Nice will not take place on Friday. The number of matches in the French league that is postponed due to a major protest action of the 'Yellow Hesjes' comes to three.

Earlier a line was set by Paris Saint-Germain-Montpellier and Toulouse-Olympique Lyon. Those matches were on the program next Saturday. More cancellations may follow.

The past few weeks, especially in Paris, things got out of hand by campaigning citizens, now better known as the 'Gilets Jaunes' ('Yellow Hesjes'). The activists are often dissatisfied because they can not make ends meet.

Monaco-Nice, which would start at 8.45 pm on Friday, is being urged by the Monegasque government and the department.

Monaco is working on a bad season. The team of Thierry Henry, who succeeded the defeated Leonardo Jardim last month, is only eighteenth in the Ligue 1. In the Champions League, the eight-time national champion is already eliminated.
