Metz gets a closed-door match after Guingamp incidents.
After the events that occurred during the match against Guingamp on September 12, the League’s Disciplinary Committee decided that FC Metz should be punished by playing a match behind closed doors.
FC Metz is performing nicely. After the incidents that took place during the match against Guingamp (3-6) on September 12, the League committee decided to reprimand the Lorraine club by having them play a match behind closed doors as a form of punishment.
To refresh your memory, the mood in this gathering became tense quite fast. Following the entrance of a spectator onto the field who was threatening Pierre Gaillouste, the referee of the match, the game was stopped, and three players were shown red cards. Violent comments were also made.
Pau should be able to visit FC Metz the next day in Ligue 2, and FC Metz should see the effective sanction when they play Sochaux on October 15. Both László Boloni, the coach of the garnet club, and Pierre Dréossi, the sporting director, were given a one-match punishment for their roles in the incident.
