PSG: Mbappé handed three-match ban for Coupe de France final red
Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé was sent off for a reckless challenge on Damien Da Silva and will serve a three-match suspension.
Kylian Mbappé has been handed a three-game ban by the French Football Federation (FFF) for his red card in Paris Saint-Germain's Coupe de France final defeat to Rennes.
Mbappé sent off for bad tackle as PSG go down on penalties
The 20-year-old was sent off by referee Ruddy Buquet for a shocking challenge on Damien Da Silva near the corner flag late in extra-time with the match level at 2-2.
Without Mbappé available to take a penalty, PSG lost the shoot-out 6-5 to miss out on a domestic double, having already wrapped up the Ligue 1 title.
The FFF's disciplinary committee announced on Friday that the France international will sit out three matches.
Mbappé was banned for the 3-2 loss to Montpellier in midweek and will now also miss the league meetings with Nice and Angers.
Neymar also facing punishment over post-final incident
Disciplinary proceedings have also been opened up against Neymar, who let his frustration get the better of him after the match as he appeared to punch a fan.
Neymar was making his way up the Stade de France stands to receive his runners-up medal when he was confronted by a supporter, leading to the scuffle that could potentially land him a hefty suspension.
The Brazilian forward is reportedly facing a ban of between three and eight matches when the FFF returns its verdict.
