According to L'Équipe, a local order issued today prohibits Paris Saint-Germain supporters from attending their away match against Saint-Étienne on November 28.

The Geoffroy-Guichard will be at a considerably reduced capacity, with two of the home fans' stands set to be empty following punishments for fan disturbance in the build-up to last month's draw against Angers.

After incidents in 2015 and 2019, the statement justifying the restriction on away fans from the stadium notes that the measures are intended to decrease the risk of public disorder.

It goes on to say that these events are founded on a "heated rivalry between supporters of Paris and Saint-Étienne, which runs counter to any sense of sportsmanship."
