Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar was one of five players sent off following a fracas during fierce rivals Marseille's derby victory.
The clash saw an incredible 12 yellow cards shown by referee Jerome Brisard inside normal time as tensions flared on the pitch - and the shocking melee that was sparked into life deep inside stoppage time saw both teams punished.
Marseille's Dario Benedetto and PSG man Leandro Paredes had clashed with the visitors leading by a single goal, and their coming together soon developed into a full-scale scrap involving a large number of stars.

Neymar also found himself involved, and soon received his marching orders for a punch on defender Alvaro Gonzalez after the official checked his VAR screen to review the unsavoury incident.
As he trudged off the Parc des Princes pitch, Neymar could be seen telling the fourth official about an alleged incident of racist abuse, seemingly involving Gonzalez, to add another sickening twist to the evening.
