(Reuters) – Olympique Lyonnais will have to play their Ligue 1 games behind closed doors pending an investigation into the crowd trouble that prompted Sunday’s match against Olympique de Marseille to be abandoned, the French League (LFP) said on Monday.

The game was called off almost two hours after Marseille’s Dimitri Payet was hit by a bottle thrown from the Groupama Stadium’s stands after five minutes.
