RMC Sport report this afternoon that Azerbaijani side Qarabağ are set to complain to UEFA following their 3-1 defeat to Marseille yesterday over alleged pro-Armenia chanting.
Marseille – whose city holds a historically large Armenia diaspora – also saw several Armenian flags displayed by fans at the stadium.
The OM fans were ostensibly showing their support for the country in the wake of the conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh region between the two Caucasus nations. One of the banners held up read “Artsakh is Armenia”.
As a result, UEFA could sanction Marseille as a result of its regulations regarding neutrality and political symbols.
