Chaos Mars PSG, Marseille Ligue One Match
Brazilian star Neymar jr was among the five players sent off after chaotic scenes marred the Ligue 1 encounter between PSG and Marseille which ended abruptly with the visitors leading 1-0.
Ten yellow cards and five red cards were issued at the end of the fiery encounter. Apart from Neymar Jr. others sent off were PSG‘s Layvin Kurzawa and Marseille‘s Jordan Amavi, Leandro Paredes and Dario Benedetto.
Neymar had hit Alvaro Gonzalez on the back of the head, with the two having had a constant verbal duel during the match.
“He’s racist, that’s why I hit him,” Neymar said to the fourth official as he made his way off the pitch.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Classique also saw another lamentable scene: Angel Di Maria spitting towards Alvaro, which obviously comes in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
PSG lost their opening game 1-0 against Lens last weekend.
