Marseille’s Champions League clash with Sporting Lisbon at Orange Velodrome on Wednesday was delayed due to traffic congestion.
The Group D match, scheduled to kick-off at 17.45 UK, had to be pushed back 20 minutes due to the away side’s coach arriving late.
UEFA confirmed the match would start later than planned because of the late arrival of Sporting's bus due to traffic.
