A lot of cheap fouls being given away by both teams, especially in the middle of the park, which is disrupting the momentum of the game.

Hakimi does well to get away from his marker and find Messi. Messi spots Neymar in the centre and passes the ball to him. Neymar tries to thread a pass to Mendes, who had made the overlapping run, but sees it cut out.
Marseille has surely looked the more dangerous team till now and it has enjoyed the better chances in the match as we approach the end of the first-quarter.

PSG launches a counter-attack of its ow. Messi, who had options on either side, rolls the ball to Neymar on his left. Messi’s pass is a tad bit overhit, that forces Neymar wide. He squares the ball to the centre but cannot find a teammate.

Shot: Veretout takes a shot from distance but blasts his effort over the bar.
Neymar releases Nuno Mendes on the left with a lovely weighted-pass. Mendes uses his pace to make a darting run into the Marseille box. Once inside, he shoots at keeper Lopez’s near -post but the keeper makes the save.
Marseille players appeal for a handball as the ball seemed to have struck Hakimi’s arm while he was blocking the cross. It was a vociferous appeal by the players but the referee waves play to go on.
Guendouzi threads an excellent ball for Malinovskyi who had made a good run. However, Marquinhos is there to anticipate the danger and clear the danger.
