Verratti victim of shock Payet tackle

Italy international Marco Verratti was on the end of an astonishing Dimitri Payet red card offence in PSG’s win over Marseille.

Paris Saint-Germain won Le Classique 2-0 this evening in Ligue 1.

It was a typically fiery affair and had a great deal of ex-Serie A influence, as Alessandro Florenzi’s cross was nodded in by former Inter striker Mauro Icardi.

Kylian Mbappé got the first goal, but the incident that will hit headlines happened in the final stages.

Payet went studs-up on Verratti’s torso inside the penalty area, completely mistiming his challenge and leaving the Italian both in pain and furious.
