The match between Metz and Lyon was canceled after only 30 minutes when Lyon's goalkeeper Anthony Lopes was hit by fireworks, twice.
The fireworks were thrown by the home supporters and caused such injuries that the goalkeeper was sent to hospital for further examinations.
The Portuguese goalkeeper was first hit once, before another "banger" was thrown while he received treatment.
The fireworks exploded near the back of the goalkeeper, who then rolled away.
A Lyon-doctor was also hit by fireworks.
Metz took the lead by Gauthier Hein before the match was stopped at the Stade Saint Symphorien. The game was then put on hold for 45 minutes before it was decided to cancel the match.
The incident may cause Lyon to be awarded the victory.
