Neymar was sent off for an apparent headbutt in Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-2 draw with Marseille on Sunday night.

The Brazil international collected two yellow cards in quick time at the Stade Velodrome, the first for dissent with just five minutes left to play.

Neymar was then fouled by Marseille midfielder Lucas Ocampos, although the Argentine’s reaction to the tackle did not help the world’s most expensive player from staying on the field.

The dismissal meant Neymar became the first scorer to be shown a red card in league clash between these two fierce rivals in 25 years.
