Barcelona lose appeal on Neymar's suspension

  • Print
Barcelona's appeal to annul the suspension that will keep Neymar from playing in the clasico against Real Madrid was rejected by the Spanish football federation on Thursday.
The federation appeals committee said it was not overturning the two-game suspension handed to Neymar for sarcastically applauding an assistant referee in Barcelona's 2-0 loss at Malaga on April 8.
The two-match ban was in addition to a one-game suspension he was automatically required to serve after being sent off in Malaga. Neymar served that suspension last weekend as Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 3-2.
