Watch: Five players sent off after brawl in PSG v Marseille amid racism claims


After reaching the Champions League final just a few weeks ago, PSG have endured a disappointing and chaotic start to their Ligue 1 season. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side eventually lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich and then kicked off their league campaign with a shock 1-0 defeat at Lens.

PSG looked to get back on track in Le Classique against Marseille at the Parc des Princes, but the visitors scored the game’s only goal through Florian Thauvin in the first half.

The game then descended into chaos in second-half stoppage time with Layvin Kurzawa, Leandro Paredes, Neymar, Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto all receiving red cards following a mass brawl.

As he left the pitch, Neymar told the fourth official he had heard a racist comment from Alvaro Gonzalez, but the defender has since denied the allegations. Andre Villas Boas, meanwhile, has claimed Angel di Maria spat at a Marseille player.
