The Racing Club de Lens (RCL) has advised its sections of supporters not to travel to Marseille for the Sunday night match against OM as part of the 8th day of Ligue 1. Management evokes security conditions " not guaranteed ”, we learned Thursday from the club.

"Following the last exchanges with the Prefecture of Bouches-du-Rhône, the safety conditions are not guaranteed", indicates the club in an email received by the fans of the Sang et Or. The RCL has also confirmed to the AFP sending this message before the meeting, which will be held at the Orange Vélodrome.

" It is the hospital that does not care about charity "

On social networks, OM supporters are indignant.

"It is true that RC Lens can give lessons to other clubs on safety conditions," Lolo jibes on Twitter.

"It's the hospital that doesn't give a damn about charity," laments another Marseille supporter on the same social network.

“It's not more secure than at the velodrome in France.

Look at your stadium, your supporters can receive seats, ”adds Tiflo.

These tweets, and many others, refer to the excesses that took place during the derby between Lens and Lille last Saturday at the Bollaert-Delelis stadium.

Supporters of both teams had clashed in the stands, including throwing seats.

Several people had been slightly injured.

The two clubs were also sanctioned: two games behind closed doors for RC Lens and travel bans for Losc fans.
