FT: PSG 0-1 Marseille. It's all over and Marseille have won! The fighting at the end will overshadow a great win for the visitors. They came with a plan and will feel it should have been 2-0, but 1-0 will have to do. Thauvin's goal, taken very well, proves the difference. But there are likely to be plenty of bans following the fighting at the end - and Neymar appeared to be claiming a racist comment was made as he left the pitch.

And the newly-blonde Paredes is quickly booked for a rash tackle on Payet.

- Yellow cardJuan BernatParis Saint-Germain
Neymar shoots and gets the ball through the wall, but a mass of bodies blocks it and Thauvin is able to break. He passes one man and is through two-on-one it appears, only for Bernat to cynically foul from behind. That's another booking.

We're back underway.
HT: PSG 0-1 Marseille. Well that was feisty. Marseille have done little going forward, but lead thanks to Thauvin's well-taken goal. There have been five bookings, lots of rows and one fine Mandanda save. For all their dominance, PSG haven't created enough chances and are looking increasingly frustrated.
Payet takes and there are big Marseille appeals for a penalty. The ball hit Herrera's arm as he jumped, but his arms were down and nothing is given.

- GoalFlorian ThauvinOlympique de Marseille
GOAL! PSG 0-1 Marseille (Thauvin). Out of nowhere, Marseille lead! Thauvin gets on the end of Payet's free-kick cross and superbly volleys home, beating Rico at the near post. VAR having a look, however. It was tight in regards to offside.
Bernat wastes a promising chance to cross by letting the ball strike his arm. PSG's full-backs getting forward at will.
No social distancing here, etcetera.
Alvaro comes through the back of Neymar and sends him tumbling. That could easily have been a yellow card, but isn't.

- Yellow cardAlessandro FlorenziParis Saint-Germain
Florenzi is late as he slides in on Amavi and now he's booked! That is four already.
- Yellow cardDimitri PayetOlympique de Marseille
Payet a little puzzled as to why he has been carded, which is fair enough. Both number 10s must be careful now.
- Yellow cardNeymarParis Saint-Germain
Neymar lightly catches Payet late and the Marseille man is down in a heap, after Neymar lands on his head. A skirmish eventually follows and both are booked.

Caleta-Car passes straight to Neymar and Marseille are in trouble. Sakai lunges in to try and dispossess the Brazilian, fails, and is booked.
Marseille break down the left and then move the ball inside to Rongier, who has a go from range but produces a tame effort. That doesn't stop Rico twice fumbling, though.
No penalty. Gueye's shot did strike a Marseille arm, but the defender was so close to him and the ball was heading over, so that's a good call.
Big early drama! Mandanda makes a brilliant save to deny Verratti's thighed effort from close range, and PSG then want a penalty after the ball struck Kamara's arm in the aftermath.
Marseille get the game started, greeted by boos from the limited number of fans in the stadium.
There is a moment of applause pre-game in honour of referee Sebastien Desiage, who passed away at the age of 46 this week.
The players are out on the pitch. Marseille are all in white, PSG largely in navy blue.
This will be the 50th edition of Le Classique played at the Parc des Princes. The hosts have won 27 of the previous 49, with 12 draws and 10 Marseille wins.
In three games versus Marseille, Neymar has one goal, two assists and one red card.
Only 10 minutes to go now.
In fact, PSG are 20 games unbeaten against Marseille in all competitions.
Marseille have only scored once in their last five games against PSG, with the aggregate score 15-1 in the Parisians’ favour. PSG won all five games.
Both sides are playing catch-up, having played just once so far in Ligue 1 for various reasons. Marseille won their one game and could go as high as fourth with a win tonight, while pointless PSG will kick off in 17th. Rennes, Monaco and Lille all have seven points from three games, while Saint-Etienne have six from two. It's too early to start thinking about a title or top-three race, but neither of these clubs will want to be too far adrift even with games in hand, given the potential of this to be an odd season.
Here are those goals.
PSG won this fixture 4-0 last season, but are without their scorers as Icardi and Mbappe bagged a brace apiece. The sides only met once last season, with the return fixture curtailed by the pandemic.
Payet's last tweet stoked the fires of this rivalry.
Marseille look to be playing a similar 4-3-3, but make five changes from the team who defeated Brest 3-2. Alvaro, Pape Gueye, Valentin Rongier, Maxime Lopez and Dimitri Payet all come into the side.
MARSEIlLE: Mandanda, Sakai, Alvaro, Caleta-Car, Amavi, Rongier, Kamara, Gueye, Thauvin, Lopez, Payet.
The hosts make four changes from their game on Thursday, with Angel Di Maria and Neymar the headline additions having been ruled out of the Lens match with COVID-19. Sergio Rico returns in goal and new signing Alessandro Florenzi makes his debut in defence.
PSG: Rico, Florenzi, Kehrer, Kimpembe, Bernat, Herrera, Gueye, Verratti, Sarabia, Di Maria, Neymar.
Speaking of Mbappe, he has been linked with a move away from Paris today. Could Liverpool or Manchester United make an ideal landing spot for him?
A reminder - Kylian Mbappe, Marquinhos and Mauro Icardi are all absent from the hosts' squad. The first two will likely be missed by Thomas Tuchel more than Icardi, given he could not get off the bench when PSG were in need of a goal in the Champions League final.
Good evening and welcome to LIVE coverage of Paris Saint-Germain against Marseille. The visitors have a dreadful record against PSG of late, but that didn't stop them enjoying the result of the Champions League final, so there could be some added spice here - especially as PSG still have some big names missing due to contracting coronavirus. Team news is on the way shortly...
