The 34-year-old started for the French giants in Le Classique, a game that ended 0-0. PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino saw one of his men sent off early in the second half, and therefore might have been the happier of the two managers at the final whistle.
While the match did not produce many memorable moments, there was a bizarre event in the 73rd minute when a Marseille fan made his way on to the field and chased down Messi as the Argentine moved towards the opponent's penalty area.
