Montpellier had already been hit by sanctions because of previous fan violence.

So more action seems certain to follow another shocking night.

The home stands were partially closed after Montpellier supporters threw missiles at visiting Marseille players.

In all, around Bordeaux fans were at tonight’s match – as Samuel Kalu bagged their late equaliser in a 3-3 draw.

But the evening was ruined for many before kick-off.

A Bordeaux supporters coach was ‘ambushed’ – with glass debris leading to what were described by French reports as ‘light injuries’.

And Bordeaux president Gérard Lopez tweeted his disgust at the latest incident to tarnish Montpellier’s reputation.

“My full support goes out to the Bordeaux supporters and the injured, the club is with them.”
