Players from both sides stepped forward to intervene, and stewards were seen trying to hold back the Nice supporters from entering the pitch, but it was too late. RMC, a French radio network, reported that three Marseille players were injured.
Because Marseille refused to return to the pitch, Nice was given a 3–0 victory in accordance with Ligue 1 rules.
