Bad news for PSG and Brazilian forward Neymar as once again the player was victim of a reckless challenge at the end of Sunday night's Ligue 1 clash in Paris.

The striker who has been in fine form recently was on the receiving end of a rash challenge from Thiago Mendes with the game in time added on at the Parc des Princes.

The Olympique Lyon player was given his marching orders following a VAR review after the player caught Neymar's ankle. The PSG striker was in clear pain and had to leave the pitch on a stretcher and was in a state of distress with early reports suggesting an ankle break.

 PSG lost the game 0-1 and surrendered their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table as Lille and Lyon now lead the way.
