Bordeaux vs Rodez Ligue 2 match abandoned: Fan-player altercation leaves striker Lucas Buades concussed

The final home game of the season for Bordeaux against Rodez left people in shock as an altercation between a supporter and a player unfolded on the pitch.

For Bordeaux, who currently sit in third place, the match was crucial in their bid for promotion to Ligue 1.

Their hopes were dealt a severe blow when Rodez capitalised on defensive errors, taking a 1-0 lead courtesy of Lucas Buades’ clinical half-volley between the legs of Bordeaux goalkeeper Gaetan Poussin.

However, the jubilation quickly turned to horror when a Bordeaux supporter stormed onto the field. He physically confronted Buades, causing him to collapse.

The Rodez striker had to be stretchered off and is in hospital.

The game stopped immediately as both teams went to the dressing rooms. The interruption lasted for approximately 40 minutes.

Referee Nicolas Rainville later addressed the media in a press conference, revealing that the match would not resume.
