Barcelona winger Neymar Jr. is set to miss the El Clasico after being handed a three game ban following his dismissal against Malaga in the weekend- a game Barca lost 2-0.
For the first time in his La Liga career, Neymar was given his marching orders for two bookable offences as Malaga gave their title a setback on saturday.
However, he was handed an extra two match suspension on top of an automatic one game ban for mockingly applauding the match officials as he went off. Barcelona are most likely to appeal the decision.
As well as missing a potential title decider Neymar will miss games against Real Sociedad and Osasuna.
