Marseille fans have concocted a magnificent tifo for the 120 years of the club.
On the south turn side, a tifo of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, the city symbol, has also been brandished by local fans. Beautiful works, which gave colors and an even more attractive atmosphere for this duel of the Olympics. In short, it was the atmosphere in big nights in the Marseille area.

The record of affluence beaten at Velorome
65369 took place in the Velodrome. It is neither more nor less than a record of affluence for this stage. In the history of Ligue 1, there is only one poster that has attracted more people. The one that pitted Lille in Lyon in 2009 at the Stade de France (70000 spectators).
As a reminder, the pre-game of this OM-OL was marked by the incendiary pikes launched by Dimitri Payet against his former coach Rudi Garcia. Attacks that generated additional tension for this fight, as the arrival at the Stade des Lyonnais with the stoning of the bus they were victims. The first minutes of the game also saw the referee Mr Gauthier interrupt the game several times because of projectiles launched against the Gones. During these moments, Rudi Garcia, whose face appeared on the giant screen, received a shower of insults from Marseille fans.
