When Paris Saint-Germain played at the Stade Vélodrome this past weekend, the capital club dealt with various antics from the Olympique de Marseille supporters. Whether it was garbage being thrown during free kicks or a pitch invader stopping a PSG attack as he approached Lionel Messi.
There’s no word whether these antics will have consequences, but Marseille is beginning to drop sanctions on their supporters for their behavior against the capital club.
France 24 reports that a Marseille fan has received a two-year prison sentence following an incident where a police officer was injured. Ahead of the PSG-OM match, there were hundreds of people hoping to enter the stadium despite the gates being closed.
The police had to come in and settle the situation, but after an officer received a face injury, the police had to fire tear gas. In the end, there were 21 people arrested, 17 taken into custody, charged with damage, possession of rockets, and violence or insult or resisting police officers.
It will be interesting to see if there’s more fallout from the antics Marseille supports did during the matchup versus PSG.
