Neymar could reportedly face a seven-match ban for punching Alvaro Gonzalez after he accused the Spaniard of racism.

The Brazilian superstar was sent off for Paris Saint-Germain after VAR found that he had thrown a punch at Gonzalez, before the Brazilian insisted that the Marseille defender was racially abusive towards him.

The governing body of professional football in France, the LFP, will now review the incident before handing out its suspension for the Brazilian, with the organization's regulations stating that the Brazilian could be banned for as many as seven matches, according to French sports outlet RMC Sport.

As cited by RMC Sport, 'An aggressive action committed outside of a game set and without causing injury to the opponent can lead to the suspension of seven games'.

However if the reason for the dismissal is an attempted assault, he could face a ban of up to six games.' 

They are also investigating the claims made about Gonzalez, and if he is found guilty of racism he could face up to a ten-game ban.  

Marseille ran out 1-0 winners in a heated derby that saw five players sent off while 12 others were given yellow cards after a mass brawl broke out during the game
