Neymar's hopes of playing in the Clasico against Real Madrid are over after the Barcelona forward received a three-match suspension for applauding referee Gil Manzano against Malaga.

The Brazilian forward was sent off at the Rosaleda for a second bookable offence, a punishment that carries an automatic sanction of one match.

However, Gil Manzano reported Neymar after the match for ironically clapping his decision as he left the field.

And on Tuesday, the Spanish Football Federation's Competitions Committee confirmed that on top of the original ban, the player would miss an additional two games for dissent against the match official.
