The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others. By being eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday against Manchester City (2-0), PSG reached out to be beaten. In particular by the Marseille press.
The elimination on Tuesday night of PSG against Manchester City (2-0) obviously generated its share of disappointments but also of happy. Apart from the fans of the Citizens, some detractors of the Parisians were delighted with the rout in the Ile-de-France region at the Etihad Stadium. In the lead: the Marseillais. And in particular the local press. A few minutes after the final whistle, Provence did not hesitate to tweet the famous maxim “Forever the first”, accompanied by a snapshot of Basile Boli lifting the cup to the big ears in 1993.
A small cleat behind the ears of Parisians on the part of the Phocéens always happy to be the French exception in C1. The players and supporters of PSG would have loved living in Istanbul on May 29, the evening of the Marseillais on May 26, 1993 on the lawn of the Olympic Park in Munich against AC Milan (1-0). Paris-SG will have to wait at least a year before lifting the first Champions League in its history. A competition of which Olympique de Marseille will not be part of next season. The Phocéens are since this year the recordmen of consecutive defeats in C1 (13).
