Ahead of facing Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 "Le Classique" match, Olympique de Marseille chairman, Pablo Longoria, asked about the potentially incident-provoking rivalry between the two fandoms, stated:

I want to do everything so that this moment remains a moment of football and nothing but a moment of football. Everyone warned us. If any incident should happen, we could be punished very severely. Last week a simple ball of paper thrown on the field prompted the referee to stop the game. Next Sunday, the referee will not hesitate to be just as intransigent towards us.

Accustomed to the North and South bends, the Ganay and Jean Bouin stands, I ask you all and without distinction to do everything to convince and encourage your members, your friends, your colleagues to participate in the most beautiful way in these moments".

Besides, as reported by RMC Sport, OM has also provided a specific safety device with four removable nets which will be positioned in strategic places and deemed to be at risk. twelve stewards will have the sole mission of moving them to areas considered sensitive, for example in the corner situations of PSG.
