Spanish football still mourns the departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, and today he experienced the first derby without the Argentine star on the field, after more than a decade. However, what it generates was in evidence, and nobody wants to miss their football, even if they have to put aside other good plans or games.
The Stade Orange Vélodrome was packed with more than 67,000 spectators. Nobody wanted to lose a game that will go down in history, since it was the first time that Lionel Messi played a professional classic, which was not exactly in the Spanish League.
Public of all kinds said present in the goalless draw in Marseille. It is true, only local, as a result of the game being classified as high risk, and no Paris Saint Germain fan could approach. However, the novelty was that figures like Floyd Mayweather and Lebron James came to the stadium to enjoy the event.
