PSG manager Christophe Galtier held back from fight with Marseille fans
| Last updated
PSG boss Christophe Galtier had to be held back by his staff from a fight with Marseille fans, after his side's huge win at the top of Ligue 1.
There's been a lot of pressure on Galtier's shoulders, thanks to a poor run of form for his side, following the return to domestic action from the World Cup.
Their losses to Marseille, Monaco and Bayern Munich in three different competitions in a week led to rumours that Thomas Tuchel could return to the French capital.
Lionel Messi took some of the pressure of his manager's shoulders last week, with an injury time winner against Lille, but he still needed a big performance from his side in Le Classique on Sunday.
He certainly got it, as the visitors in the south of France came away with a 3-0 win, but he nearly ended up in a fight with some rival fans, as you can see in the video below.
Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring on 25 minutes, after the hosts had put their fierce rivals under some early pressure, continuing his return from injury.
The Frenchman then set up Messi just four minutes later to double the score, with a brilliant pass, giving the Argentine his 700th career club goal.
Mbappe then reached his own milestone in the 55th minute, scoring his 200th goal and equalling Edinson Cavani as the club's all time top scorer.
It's quite unbelievable considering he didn't start his career in the French capital, making the breakthrough with Monaco, and is still only 24-years-old.
Perhaps it's no real surprise considering he's already scored five goals in World Cup finals, and is only the second man to score a hat-trick in the match.
With his contract expiring in just over a year's time, there will likely be speculation about his future again in the summer, for the third year in-a-row.

Mbappe recently became the club's vice-captain, not that the man to previously hold that title Presnel Kimpembe, was told about it.
He tried to take his responsibility seriously, telling his teammates they could overturn the loss in the Champions League to Bayern Munich, if they prepared properly.
Less than 24 hours later, Neymar was spotted in McDonalds with his friends, after taking part in a poker tournament, as their relationship continues to fragment.
