Fourteen Bordeaux fans were on Monday punished with suspended prison sentences and stadium bans over violent incidents ahead of a Ligue 1 match last month.

The supporters were arrested prior to Bordeaux's 2-2 draw at home to Montpellier on October 1, after the windscreen of a bus carrying fans of the away team was smashed by a missile.

One of the fans was handed a four-month suspended prison sentence by a court in Bordeaux, with two-month suspended sentences for the other supporters.

They were also banned from going to Bordeaux's Stade Chaban-Delmas for one year.
