It led to kick-off being delayed as the players, who were warming-up at the time, had to be taken off the field.

Saint-Etienne were the travelling fans and the brawl broke out at an entrance to the stands.

Many hooligans were involved as punches and objects were reportedly thrown.

The fight then spilled back up the terraces as fights broke out high in the away end.

Riot police were quickly on the scene.

It is unclear what caused the trouble.

Saint-Etienne went on to lose the game 2-1, conceding a 95th minute winner.

The goal was scored by Lucas Buades, who netted against Bordeaux last season and was then attacked by a fan in the aftermath.

It caused that match to be postponed and Rodez were handed the win.

Bordeaux got slapped with a point deduction, which cost them promotion and the win was enough for Buades’ team to avoid relegation.

Saint-Etienne are no stranger to trouble themselves, starting last season on -3 points and with a four-game stadium ban after a riot following their relegation from Ligue 1 in 2022.
