Neymar banned for one game


Neymar's absence through suspension had no impact on Paris Saint-Germain as Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria led the Ligue 1 leaders to a comfortable 3-0 win over Nice at Parc des Princes on Friday.

Cavani was given a standing ovation by the home fans when he was substituted for Lucas Moura in the 85th minute and Neymar also applauded his team mate from the VIP box.

And, as per the aforementioned report from UOL Sports, Neymar's teammates are not the only ones growing weary of his treatment in Paris, with the former Santos standout himself becoming fed up with the lengthy tactical lessons of manager Unai Emery.

"I wanted to play against Neymar, personally". He is ready to come into the XI. "For me it's great to have a player like him with you every day".

Brazil star Neymar was suspended after being sent off in last Sunday's 2-2 draw away to Marseille.

The win also served to erase the memory of last week's draining 2-2 draw with hated rivals Marseille.

"Tonight, we got the goal as early as possible in the first half and that allowed us to play more relaxed and close out the game". "You have to be clever in this very complicated market".

Nice finished third last season.

PSG saw out the victory as goalkeeper Alphonse Areola did not have to make a save against Mario Balotelli's side until second-half stoppage time.

Nice are the only French team to have beaten PSG in 2017, recording a 3-1 triumph in April. "I wish he were in the game".

Nice do not travel to the capital in great shape.

Marseille are two points outside Ligue 1's top three with 10 games played and are just four off second place, which would secure automatic Champions League group stage qualification.

Before the departure from Spain, a squabble had occurred between Neymar and Nelson Semedo in training. Adrien Tameze returns as well.

"They can react if there is too much aggression". But after even bigger spending during the offseason - with Neymar and Mbappe costing a combined 402 million euros ($475 million) - a semi-final is surely the minimum target.
