- OffÁngel Di MaríaParis Saint-Germain
- OnThilo KehrerParis Saint-Germain
Angel Di Maria sacrificed. Thilo Kehrer is on.
Argh, over. That is poor by his standards!
Free kick to Marseille just outside the area. Otherwise known as Payet territory.
- Red cardAchraf HakimiParis Saint-Germain
Wow... Hakimi is off after the referee checks the monitor and decides he did indeed foul Under.
The ref is looking at VAR here. Hakimi could be in trouble.
Neymar again takes a corner under protection, but it is cleared. At the other end, Under is penalised for handball when he appeared to be fouled by Hakimi. Harsh.
This game is lacking momentum and direction. The fans are throwing things again, which isn't helping.
Payet goes down in the area under a challenge by Danilo, but the referee tells him to get up. Looked clumsy to say the least.
- 2nd Half
We are back undereay. Marseille kick off and immediately search for Under.

Idrissa Gueye is on for Marco Verratti, who has sustained an injury.
Lovely passage of play by Marseille on the edge of the PSG box involving Payet and Kamara, comes to nothing.
Four added minutes here.
Trademark dart into the box from Messi, and after a one-two with Mbappe, he bends an effort wide. Close, and he is getting closer.
CHANCE! Hakimi denies Under, deflecting his shot as he ran through on goal.
Mbappe is so quick! Wooooowww.
The tempo to this game hasn't been the same since the stoppage. We'll have quite a bit added soon.
Peres recovers well to tackle Neymar as he connected with Verratti's chipped through ball.
Unbelievable challenge by Caleta-Car to deny Hakimi, Mbappe wins a corner in the seobd phase but it comes to nothing.

Neymar trying to get going again. Cross blocked. PSG coming back.
Payet tries to feed Milik. This game is incredibly open!

GOOOOOOAAAAALLL! This one should count; Marseille carve PSG open and Milik scores his second goal in a week after injury.
Great move from Mbappe to get into the area, but he drags his shot wide after Messi's through ball. PSG turning the screw.
- Yellow cardValentin RongierOlympique de Marseille
Rongier has now been booked for a foul on Mendes. It is simmering already this...
Extremely tight offside, but PSG are well on top. Sampaoli has been booked, too.
Orrr not? Not sure what the issue is, but VAR have chalked it off!
GOOOOOOOOAAAALLL! Peres deflects Neymar's cross-shot into the net. He had far too much space though.
Lots of smoke around the Velodrome from flares. This is some atmosphere.
CLOSE! Mbappe can't quite get on the end of a cross. Moments later, Lopez smothers the ball at his feet. Better from PSG.
Marseille are pressing high and have started well. PSG yet to settle.

- 1st Half
PSG get us off and running amid a chorus of boos
The players are out, the atmosphere sounds great. HERE WE GO!
Almost time for kick off!
It looks like a 4-3-3 for PSG tonight but I wouldn't be surprised if its a 4-2-4. Messi will be given license to roam.
Payet is hungry!
Marseille's key man is none other than former West Ham star Dimitri Payet. He has scored five goals and registered four assists in 10 league games this term.
PSG have won 21 of 33 meetings with Marseille, and it is hard to see that changing with Messi around. The 34-year-old has 3 goals in 3 Ligue 1 matches this season.
PSG are ready!
Coming into this game, PSG are six points clear atop Ligue 1 with nine wins and one loss from 10 games. Marseille are 0 points back in fifth, but can climb to third with a win, and they've got a game in hand on second placed Lens.
PSG line up!
Messi, Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria ALL start.
Marseille line up like this tonight.
