Neymar faces Clasico ban for red card clap

Neymar could miss Barcelona's El Clasico clash against Real Madrid later this month for sarcastically applauding the referee's decision to send him off against Malaga.

However, a first-half goal from former Barcelona forward Sandro Ramirez in the 32nd minute of the game and a late effort from Jony Rodriguez ruined their hopes.

Coach Luis Enrique's side remain on 69 points, three behind Real Madrid who have a game in hand.

Luis Enrique's men would have moved level on points with Real Madrid with a win following the capital side's earlier draw against Atletico Madrid, but the Catalans endured a miserable evening as they returned home empty-handed instead.

Under Article 117 of the Spain Football Federation's Disciplinary Code, players that disparage referees shall be sanctioned with a two-to-three match ban.

Sandro exposed some bad defending from Jeremy Mathieu to sprint clear on goal and slot past MarcAndre ter Stegen at his near post in the 32nd minute to give Malaga the lead.

Barcelona was informed of the draw conceded by Real Madrid in the derby and the Blaugrana had the chance to take the lead in the league with a win.

"We need to be careful in these type of matches, there were some very ugly challenges which should have been a card and others committed by us which were marked with a yellow", Luis Enrique said.

Neymar picked up two yellow cards after stopping Malaga taking a free-kick in the first-half before receiving his marching orders for a foul on Diego Llorente.

In addition, Adalberto Penaranda had a perfectly legitimate goal ruled out for offside in the 72nd minute, with the linesman incorrectly raising his flag after the Colombian had latched onto a perfectly-timed through-ball to score.

The linesman's choice could not have any influence on the final result, nevertheless, as Malaga got their second goal after all in the dying minutes.

After week 26, Barcelona were suddenly atop the La Liga table, albeit with having played one more match than their rivals, with a one-point lead.

"I am not one of those who thinks of what would have happened, because it has already happened and it does not make much sense to look to the past".

The Italian global is set to be Real Madrid's primary defensive target, and Bonucci is open to a move in order to fulfil his ambitions, according to El Confidencial.
