A group of Juventus fans appear to be giving Nazi salutes and monkey gestures to PSG supporters during their Champions League clash in Paris
A group of Juventus fans were caught on camera making what appeared to be Nazi salutes, monkey noises and monkey gestures at Paris Saint-Germain fans during Tuesday night’s Champions League clash between the two teams.
Kylian Mbappe’s first-half brace helped the French champions to a 2-1 win over the Italian giants after midfielder Weston McKennie shot back for the visitors just after the break.
However, Recordings have surfaced this appears to show some Juventus fans seemingly giving Hitler salutes to the home fans.
The discriminatory and unsavory gestures were also apparently accompanied by monkey noises and imitations.
PSG got their first blood early on through star striker Mbappe, who shot past Mattia Perin with a superb volley in the fifth minute.
The French superstar then doubled his tally just over 15 minutes later and should have scored a hat-trick by missing two golden chances.
Despite a powerful header from substitute McKennie, PSG held on to victory as Group H leaders and level on points with fellow winners Benfica.

In April, Atletico Madrid were accused of discriminatory behavior in relation to the behavior of their fans during the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against Manchester City.
Supporters of the Spanish side were caught on camera giving Hitler salutes during Atletico Madrid’s 0-0 draw with the Premier League champions.
