Twelve yellow cards, five sent, one fight – the game between PSG and Marseille caused an explosion. Now superstar Neymar is referring to a racism scandal – and therefore attacks his opponent.
An angry superstar Neymar from Paris St. Germain has made serious allegations of racism against his opponent after he was sent off in a wild game against Olympique Marseille. The wild scenes from the scandal game can be seen in the video or above here.
“Look at this racism. That’s why I hit him. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t hit that idiot in the face,” tweeted the 28-year-old.
VAR pegar a minha “agressão” é mole … agora eu quero ver pegar a imagem do racista me chamando de “MONO HIJO DE PUTA” (macaco filha da puta) … isso eu quero ver!
E aí? CARRETILHA vc me pune .. CASCUDO sou expulso … e eles? E aí?

The attacks apparently involved Spaniard Alvaro Gonzalez, with whom Neymar collided in the final stages.
“Would like to show the photo of this racist”
It’s easy for the cameras to “show my aggression. But now I want to show the photo of this racist who called me the ‘monkey son’,” wrote an angry Neymar.
In stoppage time of the match, the Champions League finalist PSG lost 1-0, they were wild birds. Both teams fought a massive brawl. Neymar, Kurzawa Layvin (both PSG) and Jordan Amavi (OM) saw red, Leandro Paredes (PSG) and Dario Benedetto (OM) yellow-red. Neymar was punished for hitting Alvaro on the back of the head after video evidence. Twelve other players saw the yellow card in the course of the match.
Second loss in the second game
For PSG with coach Thomas Tuchel, it was their second defeat in the second game of the season. The last time the capital club started so badly in Ligue 1 in 1984/1985. Paris had already lost to newly promoted Lens in the first game of the season (0: 1).
Just like Angel di Maria, Neymar was back in the base after surviving the corona infection. National player Thilo Kehrer also played from the start, Julian Draxler was replaced in the 61st minute after recovering from a groin injury. Tuchel had to do without Kylian Mbappé, Marquinhos and Mauro Icardi, who were also quarantined after positive tests.
