Supporters from both corners sent rockets and smoke bombs across the pitch, damaging the goal nets.

The club had just received a suspended sanction

ASSE risks all the greater since the Disciplinary Commission had just imposed on it, Wednesday, a suspended two-match suspension of the south stand of the stadium after incidents noted during the derby against Lyon on October 3.
