The second case of similar fan violence came up in a French Ligue 1 match, as French champions Lille travelled to face rivals Lens. The Lens fans at halftime invaded the pitch and headed to the away supporters' stand, where they threw objects at each other before the police intervened and separated the fans. The match resumed for the second half, as Lens went ahead to beat Lille by 1-0.

This fan violence comes barely two days after Napoli fans attacked Leicester City fans in the Leicester City center and after the match at the Kingpower Stadium, where they played out a 2-2 draw.

European domestic league organizers and UEFA should find a solution to this growing violence before it gets out of hand and ruins the beautiful game in Europe.
