This week, Paris SG is playing part of its season. Last Saturday, the Parisians lost against Lille Olympique Sporting Club (0-1), thus leaving the Mastiffs to take off with three points ahead of the Ligue 1. This is complicated all the more so as it does not There are only seven games left to play this year. This Wednesday, they face Bayern Munich in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League.
But back to domestic competitions. Three points behind, it’s not that bad. But it can become so if we have to do without one of its stars for some of the last seven matches of this 2020-2021 edition of Ligue 1. And all of this is possible. As said above, Paris SG left feathers at the Parc against Lille, because, in addition to the defeat, they saw Neymar being excluded.
Neymar will be absent for a few matches
Two small yellow cards. It should have stopped there and he would only have received a suspension match (against Strasbourg). The trouble is that he also tried to do battle with the player who was with him in the first altercation, Tiago Djaló. All of this was co-signed in the post-match report and therefore had to earn the Brazilian a slightly more severe suspension than the one and only match suspension for two yellow cards. This Wednesday evening, the disciplinary committee ruled.
” Meeting on April 7, 2021, the Disciplinary Commission of the LFP took the following decisions: three suspension matches including a suspended match for Neymar JR (Paris Saint-Germain) », Can we read on the report of the disciplinary committee of the LFP. With this sanction, the international Auriverde will therefore miss the trip to Strasbourg this weekend, but also the reception of AS Saint-Etienne as part of the 33rd day of Ligue 1, on April 18. Mauricio Pochettino will have to find the right solution for him to replace his important number 10.
