An absence of weight for the Reds and Blues!


This Wednesday evening, the Coupe de France will offer us a clash of prestige between Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain. If the Skies and Whites can count on a public certainly unleashed, Neymar and his partners risk feeling very alone.

OM, Stade Velodrome

A few days before this eighth final of the Coupe de France between Marseillais and Parisians, the tension is gradually rising in both camps. Rarely in recent years has the Provençal team seemed so armed and capable of defeating their historic rival. If Sunday night’s defeat against Nice (1-3) cut an incredible momentum of 11 games without a loss, Igor Tudor’s men will not be there to make up the numbers.

To achieve their goal, they will be accompanied by tens of thousands of fans. This Monday evening, nearly 65,000 tickets for the meeting had already found takers. A historic attendance record could even be broken during this match. For the Parisians, however, the evening promises to be a little more painful.

No PSG supporters at the Velodrome

Christophe Galtier’s men will not have to count on a little support since the Bouches du Rhône police headquarters have taken drastic measures. An official decree published on Monday evening thus prohibits “to anyone claiming to be a supporter of Paris Saint-Germain to travel individually or collectively on Wednesday February 8, 2023 between the Île-de-France region and the municipality of Marseille”.

This decision by the authorities was obviously expected. Indeed, such measures have been taken by the public authorities for many years, whether in Marseille or Paris. The Collectif Ultras Paris did not fail to express its anger about this recurring situation. “14 years without going to Marseille… are we condemned to life?”could we read on a banner deployed in the Virage Auteuil during the match between PSG and TFC last weekend.
