Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar will serve a one-game ban following his red card against Marseille on Sunday.

After picking up his first red card since joining the Ligue 1 side from Barcelona for a world-record fee, Neymar will be forced to sit out PSG's match against Nice on Friday.

It was Neymar's second yellow card in three minutes, but Edinson Cavani managed to earn Ligue 1 leaders PSG a point with a late free-kick.
