Neymar sees red as Marseille win 'the battle of Paris'
A first half goal from Florian Thauvin was enough to secure maximum points for Andre Villas-Boas' side in a game marred by a late flurry of red cards.
It was Marseille's first league win over PSG since November 2011, condemning last season's Champions League runners-up to their second straight league defeat after they suffered a 1-0 opening day setback at Lens.
Florian Thauvin bagged the only goal of the night latching onto a 31st minute dead ball to slot past Sergio Rico in the PSG goal. Littered by crunching fouls at either end in the first half, the game produced some free-flowing football after the break as visiting keeper Steve Mandanda pulled off several superb saves and both sides had goals disallowed for offside.

Neymar Jr was back in the PSG side after recovering from Covid-19 and the Brazilian marred his multi million dollar Puma debut by being one of five players sent off in added time. Neymar slapped a OM player and joined team-mates Paredes, Kurzawa and Olympique's Benedetto and Amavi who were all dismissed after scuffles broke out at the end of a tense and bad tempered Ligue 1 encounter.
