As announced, the Collectif Ultra Paris remained silent prior to Sunday’s classic against OM and relatively quiet after kick-off.
A strange atmosphere for a match over the top. PSG supporters remained very calm before attending the classic against OM in Ligue 1 on Sunday evening. If Marseilles has been greeted in a traditionally hostile manner, Parisians have received almost nostalgia from their supporters. No tifos or banners appeared in the Parc des Princes before the match, as part of a “present but silent” operation launched by the CUP.

The arrival of Paulette breaks the silence in the Auteuil corner
The Autuille Bend banner was also held upside down in protest against Clermont (6-1), as of two weeks earlier. Even Neymar’s quick goal (12th) didn’t particularly excite from the stands, who chanted Kylian Mbappe’s first name before taking a penalty on the other side (45th + 4). Otherwise, the silence of long moments was “heard”.
Before the match, only Paulette’s arrival elicited warm applause from the Auteuil corner and cup when he came to greet his former supporters. Otherwise, the group of supporters broke their silence when the Marseille squad was announced to boo, just as the Olympians arrived on the lawn for the warm-up, greeted with whistles and insults. Each of the visitors’ first shots were also whistled, with Payette and Guandouzzi being specifically targeted.
Cup members wore Hechter jerseys
Apart from this, CUP has started another campaign for this meeting, in which all the members have been asked to come wearing Hechter jersey. They demand the return of the legendary Paris jersey and protest the new designs, which are judged as not respecting the club’s identity.
