Neymar banned for Clasico against Real

Barcelona’s Brazilian superstar Neymar will miss a huge La Liga clash at Real Madrid on April 23 after being handed a three-game suspension, the Spanish federation said on Tuesday.


The 25-year-old forward was shown the first red card of his Barcelona career for two bookable offences as Barca’s title defence suffered a big blow in a 2-0 defeat at Malaga on Saturday.


However, he was handed an extra two match suspen-sion on top of the automatic one game ban for sarcas-tically applauding the officials as he left the pitch.


As well as missing a potential La Liga title decider at the Bernabeu, Neymar will be absent for home games against Real Sociedad and Osasuna.
