Neymar Has Been Handed Two-Match Ban After PSG-Marseille Brawl

Neymar Two-Match Ban PSG-Marseille Brawl
Neymar has been handed a two-match ban for his red card during Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 defeat to Marseille which ended with a mass brawl and five players sent off.

Ligue 1 authorities said an investigation has been opened into accusations of racism from the Brazilian forward against Alvaro Gonzalez.

Angel Di Maria will also be summoned to the league’s next disciplinary commission meeting on September 23 over claims he spat at Marseille defender Gonzalez during the game.

“We know there was an exchange of words. But right now, there isn’t enough certainty to call in the players,” said Sebastien Deneux, president of the disciplinary commission.

He said the investigation would study the footage further to determine whether there was enough evidence to substantiate the claims of racist abuse.

PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa incurred a six-match ban for kicking out at Marseille left-back Jordan Amavi, who was hit with a suspension of three games after he too was dismissed.

Leandro Paredes was banned for two games after he was sent off for a clash with fellow Argentine Dario Benedetto, who was also red-carded and will be suspended for Marseille’s game with Saint-Etienne on Thursday.

Neymar will be free to return to face Reims on September 27 but will miss Sunday’s trip to Nice.
