Nice to play home game behind closed doors

The French football league has ordered Nice to play its home game
against Paris Saint-Germain behind closed doors next weekend.

Nice hooligans invaded the field and attacked Monaco fans at
Stade Louis II stadium during a French league match on Jan. 30. The
LFP said on its Web site Thursday that it made the decision after
consulting with French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux.

Matches between Nice and PSG have led to violent clashes and
several injuries in recent seasons.

If the match had not been behind closed doors, security
concerns would have been high after recent fan violence between
rival groups of PSG supporters at a home game against Marseille on
Feb. 28 that left one PSG fan in a coma.
