With tensions running high ahead of Le Classique, a battalion of Marseille fans attempted to unsettle the PSG team as they rolled into the Stade Velodrome on Sunday afternoon.
Sadly, due to a heady mix of mistaken identity and itchy trigger fingers, the only people the L’OM ultras ended up intimidating were the innocent Chinese tourists whose bus they accidentally ambushed with eggs outside the stadium.
The slapstick incident was reported by beIN Sports commentator Matt Spiro, who Tweeted thus…
Oh dear. Marseille fans pelt bus outside PSG hotel with objects thinking it’s team bus. Turns out it was Chinese tourists’ bus #LeClassique
