Having Lionel Messi on the court cost Paris Saint-Germain dearly. And it is that this Sunday, in the tie of the Parisian cast against Olympique de Marseille, a French fan invaded the pitch to embrace the Argentine star, but it did not go as expected.

While the 72nd minute of the match was being played at the Velodrome Stadium, a spontaneous jumped from the rostrum and outnumbered the defenders led by Jorge Sampaoli, stopping a counterattack led by Lionel Messi. The action of the fan did not amuse Messi, who was visibly annoyed by the controversial intervention, like his teammates who looked on impassively.

It should be noted that the hatred between Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint Germain is one of the greatest in the world. In fact, they did not even let the Parisians go to the stadium of the team directed by Jorge Sampaoli, given the rivalry that exists between both clubs. What never ceases to surprise is that one of them admires an eternal rival at that level, and stands in front of the 67,000 spectators, without thinking about the possible consequences.

The game itself was fought more than it was played. He ended up equal to 0 to 0, although it is worth noting that there were two goals that were canceled by the VAR. In addition, Achraf Hakimi was expelled, so Mauricio Pochettino's men ended up holding the result, which by the way was convenient for them. However, the draw was fair and it suits both teams well.
