Neymar banned two matches as league opens racism probe

Neymar banned two matches as league opens racism probe”

While the game was in progress, the French league announced bans of two games for Neymar and Leandro Paredes and six games for Layvin Kurzawa after their red cards during a home loss to Marseille on Sunday that ended in a brawl.

As well as Neymar's claim of racist abuse, five players were sent off following a mass brawl deep in stoppage time including the Brazil global, Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes from PSG and Marseille duo Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto. The Marseille defender has denied Neymar's allegations.

Neymar was sent off for slapping Gonzalez on the back of the head and accused the Spaniard of calling him a "monkey".

Marseille striker Dario Benedetto was handed a one-game suspension while PSG's Angel Di Maria, who was booked during the game but was not punished for the fight, has been called to attend a league's disciplinary committee meeting next week over claims he spat at an opponent.

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

While Villas-Boas' team have won both of their matches in Ligue 1 this season, PSG have now suffered two defeats, having been beaten 1-0 by Lens last Thursday. The Brazil star has already missed Wednesday's win over Metz and will now also be in the stands for the trip to Nice on Sunday.

He was banned for three games by UEFA - eventually reduced to two - following a foul-mouthed rant at officials following PSG's Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester United in March 2019. Amavi was suspended for three matches for retaliating.
