Paris St-Germain and Brazil forward Neymar Jr’s three-game European ban has been cut to two. The court of Arbitration for Sport ruled so yesterday.
The 27 year old forward was punished for insulting match officials over social media comments made in the wake of PSG’s home loss to Manchester United last season in the UEFA Champions League. United won the game 3-1 knocking PSG out of the tournament.
The French club challenged the decision. UEFA initially dismissed the claim and the club went ahead to appeal to Court of Arbitration for Sport who ruled that Neymar Jr will now serve a two match ban.
Paris St Germain will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League tonight at the Parc des Princes. Neymar will not play due to the ban.
