The riots continued despite the French capital being a Coronavirus red zone, crowds had built up around the Parc de Princes, PSG’s home ground, and on the Champs Elysee.
Riot police were also involved in skirmishes with gangs of youths in other parts of the city, including packed cafés, where many arrests were made.
‘Trouble started before the final whistle,’ said a fan at the Parc des Princes. ‘Riot police were out in force, and they came under attack when PSG went 1-0 down.’
