Marseille to play Europa League opener behind closed doors

Marseille are no longer at risk of being kicked out of European competition but will have to play their next Europa League game behind closed doors, UEFA said on Monday.

The French giants had appealed to European football’s governing body against a threatened ban from competing in continental competition that was handed down in July.

The ban, suspended for two years, was related to numerous crowd incidents in last season’s Europa League in games against RB Leipzig and Salzburg as well as in the final against Atletico Madrid in Lyon.
