Grenoble`s match against Stade Rennes was twice interrupted by the referee after flares and fireworks were thrown on to the pitch.
There was also trouble at the Riviera derby between Nice and Monaco, where fights broke out in the stands and police moved in while the match went on. No injuries or arrests were reported.
