PSG, Marseille fixtures among latest Ligue 1 cancellations
A total of five Ligue 1 games scheduled to take place in matchweek 18 have been cancelled due to the ongoing unrest in France.
Five Ligue 1 fixtures, including those of champions Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille, have been called off due to anticipated riots in France.
'Gilet jaunes' protests cause Ligue 1 postponements
Protests, labelled 'gilet jaunes' demonstrations, have caused havoc across the country in recent weeks, particularly in Paris, with six Ligue 1 games having been postponed in matchweek 17.
And, with police resources needed to deal with more expected riots, half of the scheduled 10 fixtures set to take place in matchweek 18 have now been postponed.
