Ah. Seen it. Thanks! Gosh, the Marseille player fell like he had been shot! I guess the racism allegation came later, cos there hadn't been any words exchanged at the point where Neymar hit him.
I guess it happened few moments earlier when both came together at the goal line and argued for a while.

Di Maria should have been off with a red in the ~36 minutes when he spit one Alvaro Gonzales.

The Var-ref should be suspended for a few weeks and some of the players should get long bans...

He even made the effort to say it in Portugese. But for now let's just wait for confirmation. Everybody is innocent until proven guilty.

But then also that little snake bastard Di Maria spat on Alvaro. If there's someone deserving of a true beating from Roy Keane it's Di Maria.

Return fixture is in Feb next year, should hopefully have a full crowd in by then too.

Should be essential viewing.

Have to wonder whether this meltdown would have happened if they had won the CL. There seems to be a lot of pent up frustration, a lot more than just two lost league games justify.

Neymar has to move to a proper league after this season. Totally ridiculous he's wasting his prime years in Ligue 1.

I know they had a long break from March to end of July but I'm amazed PSG (and Lyon) are playing french games so quickly after their CL runs. To lose a CL final isn't something you can just dust yourselves down from in a few days, it's the biggest game of careers for many of that time.

Thought we wouldn't see PSG play in league until October although guess the shorter season dosen't make that possible. And the quick holiday with half of their squad coming back with covid hasn't helped either.

Still makes the french league the most interesting for years now so that's one consolation.

A full crowd in Feb? I like your optimism.
Well they had 5,000 fans in for this game, so in a few months you'd hope they could have may more then that

Meh. PSG will just have their full squad back, will probably be 10-15pts ahead by then, and will just brush OM aside as usual (yesterday put aside).
Who cares about a competitive game? I just want to see a full on scrap break out.

I cannot see anyone looking to sign him. He is 28 now, his fee would be £150m minimum with like 700k wages. No one can afford him, especially at his age.

Mbappe on the other hand, is 21 and has 2 years left on his contract so if he does not sign a new one, he could go for free in 18 months. So teams would rather go for Mbappe over Neymar.

Spacing them out is one thing.. to have it packed again would only be possible if everyone there is vaccinated..
But yeah.. it'll be great to have fans back.. as much as possible.

Poor challenge but I think the red was slightly harsh. No real force.

Have they announced the bans for the 5 red cards from the PSG vs OM game yet? Did I miss it?

Cherki came on and changed the game for Lyon. They have to start giving him some more minutes a bit earlier.

People said the same thing about Bale, and now he's on the verge of signing for Spurs. If he wants to go he will go, money won't be the deciding factor as external forces will make it happen.

Erm there is a big big difference actually. Bale may be going on loan to Spurs, Real will pay most of his wages and there is no fee.

I dont know where you are getting this notion that he is on the verge of signing for Spurs, it is media news at best for the moment.

PSG have been very good with 10 men still.

Herrera's still great. Having him on the pitch is like still have 11 men, tbf. Wish he was still here.

Were actually down to 9 men after Bernat went off injured. Yeah they've still moved the ball at good tempo but incredible lack of ambition from Metz to do anything but defend against eight outfield players.
