After a hard fought win over RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League where Lionel Messi grabbed two goals and Ronaldinho was in attendance, Paris Saint-Germain fans will not witness their club's match back in the league this weekend after the French ministry banned them due to fear of violence.

French Ligue 1 matches this season have been plagued with different crowd violence despite concerns the Ligue struggles to find TV rights, the mayhem will further push potential investors away. There have been recorded cases of violence in the league, two of which have involved Marseille.

The derby popularly dubbed Le Classique will not have away fans at the Stade Velodrome due to fears of violence as shown twice by Marseille fans this season and the match is possible to be violent, the fans of the Paris club have been prevented from travelling for the match in recent seasons.

Montpellier vs Marseille, Lens vs Lille, Marseille vs Angers, Bordeaux vs Montpellier and Metz vs PSG have all witnessed violence this season as the league's reputation for crowd violence continues to grow. “PSG away games often disrupt public order and certain Marseille fans often display violent behaviour,” the ministry said ahead of the fixture.
