Neymar Banned For Two Ligue 1 Games After Red Card

Brazilian superstar, Neymar has been banned for Paris Saint-Germain’s next two Ligue 1 matches, the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) has announced.


The Brazil international was sent off following an altercation with Lille defender Tiago Djalo, who was also dismissed during Ligue 1 clash last weekend.


Neymar was given two yellow cards, the second for a late push on Tiago Djalo, who was also dismissed. Neymar also tried to confront Djalo again in the hallway leading to the dressing rooms.



The duo were each handed three-match bans, with one of those games suspended.


Neymar will miss Saturday’s game at Strasbourg and the match against struggling Saint-Etienne on April 18.


Djalo, who was also dismissed for a second bookable offence after clashing with the PSG man, was given a one-match suspension. Both players had a further one-game ban suspended.


The defending champions sit three points behind new Ligue 1 leaders Lille with seven matches remaining.
