Bordeaux and Nice fans fight in stands before kick-off

Bordeaux and Nice fans fought in the stands before their French cup match on Saturday.

The violence inside Bordeaux’s stadium broke out minutes before the start of the game.

The rival sets of fans confronted each other from either side of the metal fence separating the away end from the home supporters.

Missiles and punches were thrown from both sides over the fence while stewards tried to separate them.

Riot cops then intervened with batons and pepper spray.

The kick-off was delayed by five minutes as a result of the trouble.
