Lionel Messi accosted by fan as Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 clash with Marseille halted

Asia's Tech News Daily

A pitch invader briefly threw Marseille’s Ligue 1 clash with PSG into carnage by storming the turf to approach Lionel Messi.

The two French giants were locked at 0-0 heading into the final 20 minutes at Stade Velodrome.

That’s when the league leaders broke up the pitch with the emblematic Messi leading a threatening counter attack.

The former Barcelona man had Idrissa Gana Gueye on one side and Kylian Mbappe on the other as he looked to break the deadlock for his new team.

But he was halted by the referee’s whistle after a figure in a white hoodie entered the field of play.

He then approached Messi as the Argentine did his best to ignore the disturbance.

Bedlam briefly ensued as players crowded round in confusion, before security followed soon after to escort the invader off the pitch.

PSG had earlier seen Achraf Hakimi sent off and could only draw the game 0-0.

But they remain seven points clear at the top of Ligue 1 as they look to regain the French crown.
