Paris St-Germain forward Neymar has been banned for two games after being sent off against Marseille.

Neymar was given a red card in Sunday’s bad-tempered Ligue 1 match after he hit Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez.

He later accused Gonzalez of racism on social media and urged the authorities to investigate.

Gonzalez has denied Neymar’s claim.

PSG said they will “strongly support” their player, while Marseille released a statement saying: “Alvaro Gonzalez is not racist; he demonstrated it to us by his daily behaviour since joining the club, as his team-mates have already testified.”

Angel di Maria will also be summoned to the LFP’s disciplinary commission meeting on 23 September following claims he spat at Marseille’s Gonzalez.

Neymar, Paredes, Kurzawa, Amavi and Benedetto, were dismissed after a brawl broke out in added time at the end the match at the Parc des Princes, which Marseille won 1-0.
