Pitch invasion delays St Etienne-Lyon Ligue 1 clash

Sunday’s derby clash between Saint-Etienne and Lyon at the Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium was delayed for around 20 minutes following a pitch invasion by home fans.

The pitch invasion was sparked by Lyon’s fifth goal, scored by Nabil Fekir who celebrated by taking off his shirt and raising it in front of Saint-Etienne fans.

A large group of Saint-Etienne fans invaded the pitch and run toward Lyon players, but riot cops and stadium security were able to stop them in time.
