A Paris Saint-Germain fan injured in a fight between rival factions of hooligans from the club is in a life-threatening condition.

The 38-year-old fan sustained a serious head injury ahead of Sunday's French league match between fierce rivals PSG and Marseille, police said Monday.

The clashes involved hooligans from the two main stands at PSG's stadium Parc des Princes, the Tribune d'Auteuil and the Kop of Boulogne.

A 30-year-old man suspected of taking part in the beating was arrested just after the fight and has been held in detention.

Marseille fans had boycotted the game to protest against security measures imposed on visiting supporters.
