Wednesday's incident comes after two separate fan-related situations.The first and most prominent incident of the season came in August and once again involved Marseille.
The pitch invasion sparked a brawl, with Marseille players being hit with objects in the lead-up to the chaotic fight, prompting Dimitri Payet's response after being struck near the corner flag. Fans then stormed the field, forcing the match to be abandoned due to the chaos.
Nice were punished with a point deduction, while several Marseille players and staff, including Payet, were also sanctioned.
Prior to Wednesday, the most recent incident came in the derby between Lens and Lille last weekend. The two rivals went into half-time drawn at 0-0 after a tense opening 45 minutes, but were then forced to wait in order to restart the match as crowd trouble caused a temporary delay.
