Fan violence delays Lyon-Besiktas game in Europa League

Lyon's Europa League quarter-final first leg with Besiktas was delayed after sections of the home support charged onto the pitch shortly before kick-off.

The match, officially supposed to kick off at 3:05 p.m. ET, was held for about 45 minutes before finally kicking off.

Violence has marred the Europa League match between Lyon and Besiktas with fights breaking out in the stands and fans taking refuge on the pitch.

Jean-Michel Aulas, the Lyons president, called for calm inside the stadium via a loudspeaker.

The incident came just 24 hours after some Leicester City supporters were filmed singing distasteful war songs and clashing with police before their Champions League quarter-final tie with Atletico Madrid.
