Paris Saint Germain and Marseille have been told to prevent visiting fans attending both games between the clubs this season.
Visiting fans will not be allowed at either Ligue 1 match following violent clashes marred both games last season.
The decision was taken on Thursday by the league’s competitions commission to try and prevent a repeat between both sets of fans.
The teams are scheduled to play in Paris on November 7 with the return match in Marseilles on March 19.
“Competitions commission decided on Thursday to close the away fans terraces to Marseille fans for the PSG-OM game … and the away fans terraces to Paris fans for the OM-PSG fixture,” the LFP said on their website (www.lfp.fr).
“The objective of this measure, which the public authorities were naturally informed about beforehand, is to ensure the best security for everyone after the serious incidents of recent seasons”.
“This decision goes hand in hand with the policy of fighting against violence undertaken by the state, the French league and the clubs.”
Marseille were disappointed by the announcement, claiming that their fans were not responsible for the trouble.
“This decision is unfair to our fans,” Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier told his club’s official website. “Our fans travel in numbers throughout France without a hitch. It is regrettable that, despite the courageous decisions taken by PSG, fans in Paris continue to disrupt French football.”
