And the Ligue 1 outfit have now moved to apologise to travelling fans whilst distancing themselves from the perpetrators.
"Olympique Lyonnais regrets last night's incident in Saint-Jean between supporters of Tottenham and 'pseudo' Lyon fans who do not represent the Club," a statement on the club's official website read.
"Olympique Lyonnais apologises to Tottenham and its supporters for these unacceptable acts that degrade the image of the city of Lyon. Olympique Lyonnais calls for French justice to severely punish these wrongdoings.
"Olympique Lyonnais welcomes supporters of Tottenham tonight at the Stade Gerland and calls on all supporters, French or English, to support their team with respect and fairplay."
