Bastia-Lyon, the game was called off because of numerous pitch invasions

Lyon players have been attacked on the pitch by supporters of Bastia, leading to the Ligue 1 game being delayed for nearly an hour.

The first pitch invasion took place about 15 minutes before the end of the warmup at Armand Cesari stadium when supporters from the Bastia 1905 group of fans came on the field and jostled with Lyon players, including Memphis Depay and Mathieu Gorgelin.

"Still angry, none of them want to leave the changing room to play this game".
