Champions League finalists PSG made an awful return to their domestic season registering their second straight loss in the 2020-21 campaign. Marseille who hadn’t beaten PSG in the league in about ten years registered a 1-0 win, thanks to Thauvin’s lone goal. But, the major highlight of this match was a mass brawl at the end of the match which resulted in 5 red cards.
PSG played out the final minutes with eight men and Marseille nine. A total of 17 cards were shown in this game which is a record for a Ligue 1 game in 21st Century. Neymar was sent off in the final minutes and claimed he was racially abused. The matter is now in the hands of French Football Federation but pushing and shoving isn’t a part of the game.
