Standard Liege v Anderlecht abandoned as fans throw flares on pitch

Standard Liege’s First Division A clash against rivals Anderlecht at the Maurice Dufrasne stadium was abandoned on Friday night because of flares thrown by away fans.

The match was called off in the 32nd minute after Anderlecht fans threw flares and smoke bombs onto the pitch with their club trailing 2-0.

The game had already been halted twice after flares were thrown from the away end onto the pitch.

The league’s disciplinary commission has fined Anderlecht 50,000 euros.
