The French League (LFP) has announced that the rescheduled Ligue 1 match between Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais, which was postponed due to an attack on the Lyon team bus, will take place at Marseille’s Stade Velodrome on December 6. The decision by the disciplinary commission not to take any action regarding the incident has caused frustration for Lyon, who have stated their intention to appeal the ruling. The original fixture, scheduled for October 29, was called off after Lyon’s team bus was attacked, resulting in injuries to coach Fabio Grosso. On November 2, the LFP confirmed the new date for the match but did not announce a venue. Lyon’s director of football, Vincent Ponsot, had called for the game to be played at a neutral venue, but the LFP has opted to reschedule it for Marseille. Lyon expressed their disappointment with the disciplinary committee’s decision, stating that they were deeply shocked by the incidents that occurred near the Stade Velodrome on October 29. Lyon currently sits at the bottom of Ligue 1 with four points from 10 matches, while Marseille is in ninth place with 13 points.
