PSG will have to do without sporting director Luis Campos and a portion of the Auteuil stand (the one filled by the Collectif Ultras Paris) of the Parc des Princes in the next two home games they'll play in France's top-flight division.
The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) held a meeting on Wednesday, Apr. 12th, and suspended both Luis Campos (inappropriate behavior) for one match and the PSG Ultras (pyrotechnics) for the next two home games of Paris Saint-Germain.
The suspension imposed on Campos arises from his antics in the game against Olympique Lyon, precisely for his actions during the half-time break. The LFP decided to hand the sporting director a suspension for one match banning him "from the sidelines, the referees' locker room, and all official functions."
The sanction will take effect from Apr. 18 on, which means Campos won't have to endure the sanction in the game against Lens this weekend, but rather the one against Angers on Friday, Apr. 21st, for MD32 of the Ligue 1 campaign.
The Ultras of PSG will be banned from attending the next two games at the Parc des Princes
The Ultras of PSG won't be able to attend the next two Ligue 1 matches at the Parc des Princes against Lens (April 15) and Lorient (April 30) as they go through their suspensions.
The sanction comes from "the use of pyrotechnic devices" during the defeat against Olympique Lyon on April 2. In order for PSG to comply with the disciplinary organism, they'll partially close the Auteuil stand where the CUP usually resides.
For the match against Lorient, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 30, at the end of the month, the Tribune Auteuil will be closed entirely and will host no fans at all then.
This comes as a low blow for PSG as they enter a crucial run of matchups on their way to conquering their 11th and record-breaking Ligue 1 title against stout opponents both home and away, starting with a clash against Lens this weekend.
The Rouge & Bleu might have already won the title by the time Lorient comes to Paris, but even then it'd suck for the club and their supporters to not be present and rooting for the team against their opponents or perhaps even celebrating the Ligue 1 title on the last day of April at their own stadium.
