Paris Saint-Germain defeated Olympique Lyonnais 4-2 at the Parc des Princes on Sunday night and while the goals were memorable, so was the pre-match display from the Ultras.

The Ultras are known for the incredible atmosphere at the Parc des Princes and they’re not afraid to take the show on their road as we saw last season against Liverpool FC and Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.
The choice to throw confetti was a curious one even if visually it looked incredible. A bad storm that packed high-speed winds rolled through Paris at the time the match kicked off and a lot of the confetti ended up on the pitch.
The groundskeeper probably wasn’t a fan of the celebration but from a spectator’s point of view, it was amazing. The next time you hear someone claim that PSG doesn’t have “real” fans, make sure you bookmark this article and send them the link. That should keep them quiet for a while.
