PSG with 10 players equalizes with Marseille

Paris Saint-Germain drew 0-0 with Marseille in a tense derby match, although they played with one player less on the field for almost the entire second half.

Both teams scored once at the Velodrome Stadium, but Pere’s own goal and Milik’s goal, respectively, were overturned by the VAR both for offside position.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side dominated the game in the first half, but failed to score despite possessing a devastating attack on paper: Lionel Messi, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Di Maria.

Messi had two stunning combinations with Mbappe but his final shot never found the target.

It was not an easy night for the Parisians under the noise and pressure of the ardent Marseille fans, who were also throwing things on the field.

Things got worse for the visitors when Achraf Hakimi was sent off with a red card for an unauthorized interference as the last player in the PSG defense in the 57th minute.

But PSG managed to hold on and conceded no goal, avoiding a second loss in the last three games.

This draw means that PSG now has 28 points in first place in Ligue 1, seven more than Lens in second place and 10 more than Marseille which is fourth.
