(PSG – Marseille 0-1) Neymar was back, but failed to prevent the capital club from going on a new bang. In the end, it exploded with both fights and accusations of racism at the Parc des Princes.
As many as five red cards were awarded after a situation where Leandro Paredes ran Dario Benedetto to the ground.
Paredes received his second yellow card in the situation. Benedetto also received his second yellow card. Thus red card for both.
PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa lost his head completely and sent off a real kung fu kick.
Marseille player Jordan Amavi was also sent off in the shower with a direct red card.
The quarrel continued even after four players were sent off. Brazilian star Neymar also suffered a direct red card.
VAR intervened after Neymar hit Alvaro Gonzalez in the back of the head.
On the way out of the locker room, the Brazilian slammed some comments to the fourth official where it sounded like the star player accused the Marseille player of being racist.
– He was a racist. That’s why I beat him, you could hear Neymar say.
Florian Thauvin’s goal in the first half was decisive. Marseille’s first win in Paris in many, many years, and their first win against PSG in 21 games.
– Many children watched the match today. We have to be role models, says Thauvin to Telefoot Chaine.
Thus, it was also just a parenthesis that Marseille was probably cheated for a goal that was canceled by VAR for offside. However, the replay showed that that decision was probably wrong.
