Neymar to miss Clasico with Real after being handed three-game ban

Date Posted,April 11, 2017

Neymar will miss Barcelona’s crucial meeting with Real Madrid later this month.

The Brazilian was sent off as Luis Enrique’s side lost 2-0 to Malaga on Saturday, leaving them three points behind their rivals having played a game more.

The final clasico of the season takes place on April 23 and a failure to pick up three points will surely end their hopes of catching the Zinedine Zidane’s table toppers.

Neymar was given a one-game ban for his two bookable offences, but has been handed a further punishment for his response.

He sarcastically applauded the fourth official and referee Jesús Gil Manzano included that in his report.

As a result, his suspension has been extended by two games.

As well as the Madrid clash, Neymar will also miss the encounters with Osasuna and Real Sociedad.

He will be eligible to play in Barca’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against Juventus.
