WHAT HAPPENED? Paris Saint-Germain fans complained they were kicked out of the 1-1 draw at Leigh Sports Village on Tuesday simply for supporting their team during the match. "Hello, we were kicked out of the stadium because we were cheering for our team PSG Feminines," wrote one fan on X. Another supporter showed the empty stand where the PSG supporters had been.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The game was Manchester United's first ever in the Women's Champions League and ended in a 1-1 draw. Tabitha Chawinga opened the scoring for the visitors, before substitute Melvine Malard equalised in the second half to keep United's hopes of progression alive in the second qualifying-round tie.
