Neymar has been banned for two games following his red card for Paris Saint-Germain in their Classique defeat to Marseille.

PSG were beaten 1-0 by rivals Marseille on Sunday, but the match was marred by an bloody finale in which five players were sent off.

The match was the first of it’s kind in football history, with a total of 17 yellow cards and 5 red cards.

The referee was forced to use the VAR to assist him when things got out of control, and the players began to slap and punch each other.

Neymar, the world’s most expensive player, was the last of the players who saw red after he punched Alvaro Gonzalez on his head.

The Brazilian defended his actions by accusing Gonzalez of racially abusing him, but Gonzalez has since denied the claims.

A third game has been added to his two match ban following a ruling against him by a disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday.

Neymar’s teammate Layvin Kurzawa was also handed a six-game ban, with Leandro Paredes also out for two matches

The trio were forced to watch PSG get their first win of the season against Metz from the stands on Tuesday, a match where Abdou Diallo was sent off once again.

Angel Di Maria’s case is even worse, as he has been summoned by the Ligue 1 LFP disciplinary commission next Wednesday to answer for his actions in the Marseille game.

As for Marseille, two of their players were handed bans, Jordan Amavi will sit out for three games, and Dario Benedetto will only miss one game.

With Neymar banned for two games, the Ligue 1 governing body have launched investigations into Neymar’s claims of racial abuse.
