Galatasaray Fans Banned From Europa League Match Against Lazio

Galatasaray fans banned from Europa League match against Lazio

Galatasaray fans are banned from travelling for their Europa League match against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico, by order of UEFA.

The action was taken after Galatasaray’s appeal against a two-match ban on having fans at away games was rejected.

The Turkish side was fined €50,000 for lighting of fireworks and throwing of objects during their Europa League game against Olympique Marseille at the Stade Velodrome on September 30.

They were also fined a further €8,000 for acts of damage caused by supporters and have 30 days to contact Marseille.

It’s a very even group in the Europa League, with Galatasaray currently top on eight points, followed by Lazio on five, Olympique Marseille four and Lokomotiv Moscow two.

There had been concern at crowd trouble throughout this tournament and in particular this group, as Lazio banned Marseille supporters from travelling due also to COVID restrictions and growing cases in France.

The French authorities then barred Lazio fans from making the trip to Marseille, citing their far-right supporters.
