The disciplinary committee will make the decision regarding Neymar. The Brazilian could be severely punished with disqualification for the confrontation with Gonzalo Alvaro at the end of the third round match of Ligue 1 between PSG and Marseille.
As you may know, the match of the third round of Ligue 1 between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille (0: 1), which ended with a confrontation between Neymar and Alvaro Gonzalez at the end of the match and was crowned with 17 cards by the referee, including five red cards, could cost the Brazilian dearly.
The thing is that Neymar hit the back of the opposing team defender, Alvaro. For that, of course, he was expelled from the field.
After the match, Neymar said that Alvaro called him “black” and later accused him of racism, saying that he regretted not hitting him in the face.
Neymar faces disqualification from 4 to 7 matches under the disciplinary regulations of the French Football Federation. The decision will be made by a disciplinary committee, which usually meets on Wednesdays. Still, in a Brazilian case, the hearing may be postponed for a week to allow all witnesses to be questioned.
The Parisians have lost the first two matches of the 2020/21 season. So, they are in the last place with 0 points.
Paris SG first had a similar result in the 1978/79 season. On September 16, PSG will play the first-round match against Metz.
