Paris - A
minute's silence will be held before Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches this
weekend in tribute to the victims of Thursday's terror attacks in Spain,
the French league announced on Friday.
"In a gesture of respect and solidarity with the victims of the
tragedy in Barcelona yesterday, the LFP has decided to observe a
minute's silence at all the matches," the LFP revealed in a statement.
The attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils left 14 dead and over 100 injured.
The French mark of respect follows a decision by Spain's La Liga to
stage a minute's silence across all its games in the top two divisions
at the weekend.
And Germany's Bundesliga is making a similar gesture of solidarity as the 2017/18 season gets underway later on Friday.
