OFFICIAL: Neymar’s 3-match UCL suspension has been cut


The Court of Arbitration for Sport has decided to reduce the suspension of Neymar in the Champions League from three to two matches.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport reduced the three-match suspension to the minimum of two games for abusive language to a referee or assistant.

The ruling clears Neymar to play for Paris Saint-Germain at Club Bruges on October 22.

Neymar remains banned for PSG’s match against Real Madrid on Wednesday, and from playing at Galatasaray in two weeks.


UEFA found the Brazil striker guilty of abuse on social media after PSG were eliminated by Manchester United in the round of 16 in March last season.

Neymar, who was injured and did not play, published profane comments about video review officials after United got a decisive stoppage-time penalty.
