Lyon And Besiktas Handed Suspended Bans By UEFA

Lyon and Besiktas have been handed suspended European bans by UEFA, following crowd trouble which broke out during their first leg Europa League tie last week. The match in France was delayed after violence erupted in the stands, forcing kick-off to be moved back by 45 minutes.
At one stage, Lyon's president Jean Michel Aulas had to approach supporters to calm tensions in the stadium. Around 500 police were stationed at the stadium, many more than usual, after authorities deemed the fixture high risk. 

A statement from European football's governing body reads “Based on official reports and current available evidence at the disposal of the UEFA disciplinary bodies, the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has considered that the supporters of both clubs were responsible for the crowd disturbances at the match.”
