PSG break record at Classique

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that the club broke their attendance record during Sunday's night Ligue One clash with Marseille at Parc des Princes.

Le Classique ended 0-0, with Edinson Cavani guilty of spurning some glorious chances for the home side. It was the fourth occasion PSG have not won in the league, and pressure appears to be mounting on manager Unai Emery.

The Spaniard was widely booed by some of the close to 50,000 fans present at the club's home ground after he took off Angel Di Maria with around 20 minutes to go.

The Parisians now find themselves six points behind leaders Nice at the top of the standings in France's top flight.

Nonetheless, despite some patchy form for the reigning French champions, a record was set in terms of attendance this past weekend.

With 47,929 fans present to watch the club face Les Olympiens, a new attendance benchmark was achieved. The previous attendance record was 47,844 for PSG's clash with Nantes in May.  

The Paris-based outfit next face Lille in an away clash in the league on Friday night at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
