Referee Rudi Bouquet decided to stop the match about 7 minutes after its start, and asked the two teams to return to the dressing room, while Payet received treatment on the field.
Payet was preparing to take a corner kick when the projectiles landed next to him, so that the referee reported what was happening to the match delegate.
With calm returning to the north runway of the stadium, Payet tried to play the corner again, when he was hit in the ear with a water bottle thrown from the stands.
The Marseille captain remained on the ground for minutes, surrounded by players from both teams and members of the guests’ medical staff.
Payet was booed and insulted by Lyon fans during the warm-up period, knowing that it was the second time that he was exposed to a similar situation after he was injured by a bomb during his team’s match against Nice at the beginning of the season in August.
The match was stopped a quarter of an hour before the end, before it was repeated behind closed doors and on a neutral ground in Troyes on October 27, where it ended in a 1-1 draw.
And the French League for the 2021-2022 season is witnessing an escalation of riots in the stands, as the match between Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain on October 24 at the “Velodrum” stadium witnessed the throwing of packages by the fans.
