Barcelona’s Neymar may miss Clasico for likely suspension

Brazilian FC Barcelona forward Neymar might miss the El Clásico against Real Madrid as he mocked the fourth official following his red card verdict in a 0-2 loss to Malaga in the La Liga on Saturday.

Referee Jesús Gil Manzano, who booked Neymar for the second time in the match for a rash tackle on Diego Llorente to leave Barcelona down to 10 men for the final 25 minutes, included Neymar’s barb while walking off into the tunnel in his post-match report, according to the Guardian.

This could result in up to three matches being added to Neymar’s suspension.

The Catalans had Luis Suárez out with a two-game ban in the February after the same referee wrote in his report after a Copa del Rey game against Atletico Madrid that the Uruguayan delayed his exit down the tunnel after being sent off.

Real Madrid play Barcelona on April 23.
