Neymar banned for two matches


Neymar received a two -match ban Wednesday for his red card against Marseille as the French league announced it would open an investigation into accusations of racism by the Brazil 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 PSG ’ s 1-0 loss which ended with a mass brawl and five players sent off .

Sebastien Deneux , president of the disciplinary commission, said the evidence was not yet “ sufficient ” to substantiate the allegations of racist abuse and the investigation would study the images further .

The goal will be to establish “ what was actually and what was actually heard ” , Deneux added , while insisting the commission would only rule on “ objective, tangible elements . ”

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.
