Ligue 1 news: Monaco v Nice, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira, match postponed, yellow vest protests, France

Published

Three more Ligue 1 games scheduled for this weekend, including the clash between Thierry Henry’s Monaco and local rivals Nice, have been postponed, the French league (LFP) said Thursday, amid fears of more violent “yellow vest” protests in France over rising living costs.

The LFP said Friday evening’s game at the Stade Louis II had been called off following a request by the government in the Mediterranean principality, “in collaboration” with authorities in the neighbouring French Alpes-Maritimes prefecture, which includes Nice.

Monaco's coach Henry was scheduled to come up against his former France and Arsenal teammate Patrick Vieira.

Sunday night’s encounter between Saint-Etienne and Marseille and Saturday’s meeting of Angers and Bordeaux have also been postponed on the request of local authorities.

The latest postponements come after Paris Saint-Germain’s game against Montpellier and Lyon’s trip to Toulouse — scheduled for Saturday — were both called off due to security concerns, and the possibility remains that all other French top-flight games could be postponed too.
