No winner in this 101st Classic. But all the same of the spectacle. First in the gallery, where the Marseille supporters gave a hell of a welcome to the stars of PSG.
With smoke that left a thick fog on the lawn of the Velodrome during the first quarter of an hour of the match. But also unfortunately with the throwing of projectiles which required the use of protective shields on the corner kicks, kicked by the Parisians in front of the North stand.
The Marseille fans were unleashed, especially since they went through all the emotions throughout the evening. It started with a goal against his camp of Luan Peres, finally canceled for an offside position by Neymar (14th). OM players went from disappointment to the joy of scoring, a few minutes later via Milik (21st). But again, the video arbitration intervened to signal an offside of Lirola, the author of the center.
PSG then dominated but without creating a dangerous possibility. Lionel Messi, Neymar and Mbappé spent a difficult evening in the middle of the beautiful Marseille defense. Even more in the second half.
After using the video again, Achraf Hakimi was excluded (55th) for a push on Ünder, just outside the large rectangle. The Parisians reduced to ten were then unable to make a difference, despite several attempts.
On the Marseille side, we will regret not having taken advantage of this numerical superiority. Only one of eight attempts by Jorge Sampaoli’s team has taken the direction of the frame. It’s obviously complicated to beat Keylor Navas in these conditions.
