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.

The game eventually kicked off 45 minutes late.

While previewing Sunday's Ligue 1 trip to Bastia via Lyon's official Twitter account, France right-back Jallet said: "We watched what happened with a lot of sadness".

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.

LYON and Besiktas have both been charged by Uefa following the horrifying scenes which took place ahead of their Europa League clash.

Still, United will be favored to advance at Old Trafford next week after controlling much of the game in Brussels. His pass to the right wing found Antonio Valencia for a cross that was met by Marcus Rashford's volleyed shot.

Afterwards, the Lyon boss told French television station W9 of his unease over next week's second leg in Istanbul.

But Anderlecht stayed in contention and got their reward four minutes from time through a powerful headed equaliser by Leander Dendoncker.

Ajax, the 1992 champions, could have taken a more decisive lead to Germany next week.

Klaassen struck again early in the second half, firing home from 12 metres after he was picked out by Justin Kluivert, the son of former Dutch global Patrick.

But Beşiktaş have said the troubles were Lyon's responsibility as home side.
