Anthony Lopes, French Ligue 1, Leagues, Lyon, Story

Anthony Lopes

Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes has had a suspension increased from three matches to five by the French Football Federation’s appeal commission for violent conduct.

Lopes and Marseille defender Adil Rami each received three-match bans in a previous ruling. Rami’s suspension remains unchanged, the federation says in a statement on Monday.

In March, players from both teams clashed at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille after Memphis Depay scored in the last minute to give Lyon a 3-2 win in the French league.

Lyon defenders Marcelo and Mouctar Diakhaby received two-match bans, with one game suspended. Both clubs were fined €10,000.

Lopes had been accused of striking a Marseille steward amid the melee. He had already been suspended for the rest of the season, but will now miss the first games of next campaign as well.

Lyon, in second place in Ligue 1, are fighting to hold onto a Champions League spot for next season with two games remaining.
