OL-OM: towards lenient sanctions against Lyon? – Soccer

Expected by the disciplinary committee of the LFP on Wednesday, Lyon will know its final sanctions after the incident in the match against Marseille last month. According to the trend evoked this Monday, the Rhone club could do well.

Dimitri Payet touched by a spray from a Lyon bottle.

Lyon will be fixed soon. This Wednesday, the club led by Jean-Michel Aulas will go before the disciplinary committee of the LFP to discuss the incident at Olympico.

On November 21 at Groupama Stadium, a bottle thrown at Marseillais Dimitri Payet caused the match to be stopped in the fourth minute.

Lyon would have convinced the League

A minor incident in Ligue 1 this season, hence the feeling of general weariness and the fear of heavy penalties against Lyon.

We don’t want to pay for others , warned President Aulas, aware that the League will have to strike hard in the end. But to believe the trend evoked by RMC on Monday, Olympique Lyonnais will not be punished more severely than the previous faulty clubs. The instance would be indeed sensitive the argument of Lyon, according to which the jet of bottle is only one isolated case.

A suspended penalty point?

In addition, the Rhone club would have scored points with the rapid installation of protective nets in its stadium after the incident. Thus, the current 12th in Ligue 1 could copy a new game behind closed doors, after the one already served against Reims (1-2), and also a suspended penalty point. Lyon would therefore escape the withdrawal of a firm point, as well as a fine since the LFP refuses to sink its residents with little financial savings.

As for the result of this math comprising for the 14th day, no information has filtered for the moment. But if we base ourselves on the trend mentioned, with sanctions in the continuity of those inflicted earlier in the season, OL can hope to replay the match. And avoid a defeat on the green carpet which would further worsen his sporting situation in the league.
