Neymar gets two-match ban for Marseille brawl.

Neymar has 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 Brazil forward against Alvaro Gonzalez.

Angel Di Maria will also be summoned to the league’s next disciplinary committee 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.

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

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

The probe could also potentially interpret whether Neymar made homophobic remarks to Gonzalez, as reported by Spanish media.
