Neymar’s three-match Champions League ban cut to two games

Neymar’s three-match Champions League ban cut to two games

Neymar will be back Paris-Saint Germain’s Champions League lineup sooner than expected.

UEFA banned the Brazilian for three matches after he criticized the officials over a VAR decision on social media last season — Manchester United beat the French side in the final moments of the Round of 16.

“It’s a disgrace. They get four guys who don’t understand football to watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV,” wrote the frustrated Neymar on his Instagram account after the 3-1 defeat.

PSG handed a boost in Champions League

PSG successfully appealed against Neymar’s ban in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) which makes the 27-year old star eligible for the Group Stage match against Club Brugge on October 22.

The forward scored a glorious winner in stoppage-time to secure three points for PSG in last weekend’s season opener.

But he’ll need to guide PSG deep into the Champions League if fans are really ever going to forgive the wantaway for his behavior over the summer.
