With seven games to play, PSG is 12 points clear at the top. Another win will secure the Parisians the title, technically.
PSG bagged three wins from their last four games but only managed one clean sheet in that run. A shaky defence has been a major issue for the Parisians, so there is a good chance that Marseille could put the ball at the back of the net to score at least once in this trip to Paris.
This decision was made because of the “animosity” and the “strong antagonism” between the fans of the two clubs, said the order. The last PSG-OM encounter involving fans of both teams was on February 28, 2018, and “eight members of law enforcement were injured”, the order noted. The Ligue 1 season has been marked by fan violence at games in Lyon, Nice, Marseille, Lens, Brest and Angers. Marseille star Dimitri Payet has twice been hit by bottles while taking corners.
