Despite some French club supporters wanting Paris Saint-Germain to win the UEFA Champions League to put some respect in Ligue 1’s name, it’s safe to say that none of that support is coming from Olympique de Marseille fans.
PSG’s rival is the lone French club to have won the Champions League back in 1993, so their supporters would like to keep that claim.
Nonetheless, the soft banter between both fanbases can take a quick turn as Marseille supporters were banned from entering the Parc des Prince last year. Another incident in 2019 involved PSG and Marseille supporters were clashing at a rap concert.
Then on Tuesday, after Les Parisiens advanced to the UEFA Champions League final with their win over RB Leipzig. Marseille supporters took to the streets of the Vieux Port district of the city were around 100 ultras were chanting anti-PSG songs. Furthermore, they went after anyone they perceived to be fans of the capital club, according to La Provence.
With the city of Marseille hoping to avoid another one of these incidents, Le Parisien is reporting that they’re banning PSG jerseys, scarves, and colors this Sunday.
