Minor punishment for Neymar

The Brazilian has been sanctioned with only two games after his clash and brawl with Djaló, which reached the dressing room tunnel, at PSG-Lille.


Neymar has been suspended with two games and a third under review after being sent off last Saturday during PSG-Lille, after his clash and brawl with Djaló, which even reached the dressing room tunnel. The Brazilian has been spared a sanction that could have amounted to five matches after the LFP establishing that there were no illuminating images that could typify the action as aggression.

The PSG star will miss Saturday's match against Strasbourg and matchday 33 against Saint-Étienne. His lack of recidivism has also transcended in the punishment, since, although he saw the expulsion at PSG-Marseille in September, he had finally been pardoned for his run-in with Álvaro González.

Neymar's against Lille was the third red that the former Barcelona player has seen in his last 13 Ligue 1 games. The first was last season against Girondins de Bordeaux and the second was the aforementioned against Marseille. This season, the Brazilian star has missed almost half of the games that PSG has played between injuries, positives and expulsions.
