In an exciting match corresponding to Matchday 27 of Ligue 1, PSG secured a 2-0 victory over Olympique de Marseille in their visit to the Stade Velodrome.

The first half was marked by controversial refereeing decisions that caught the attention of fans and observers. Referee Benoît Bastien sparked controversy by mistaking two players named Lucas, booking Lucas Hernandez for a foul committed by Lucas Beraldo, who already had a prior yellow card.

Furthermore, after reviewing a play on VAR, he issued a straight red card to Beraldo for a foul in the center of the field, in a play that did not pose a clear goal-scoring opportunity. He also booked Danilo Pereira for dissent and subsequently Gianluigi Donnarumma, seemingly without reason.

PSG managed to break the deadlock in the 53rd minute thanks to a goal from Vitinha, who received an assist from Ousmane Dembele. The Parisian team extended their lead in the 87th minute with a goal from Goncalo Ramos, after being set up by Marco Asensio.

In the 63rd minute, with the score in their favor, PSG coach Luis Enrique made changes to his team, substituting Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, and Fabian Ruiz for Goncalo Ramos, Marco Asensio, and Manuel Ugarte. The decision to withdraw Mbappe from the field displeased the player, who, along with Dembele, headed straight to the dressing room instead of remaining on the bench.

With this victory, PSG prepares for their next match on April 3 against Stade Rennais in the semifinals of the Coupe de France.
