The Brazilian looked unhappy as he left the pitch
But Neymar lasted just 63 minutes.

He was first booked just past the hour-mark before he saw red moments later.

With the score 1-1, after Marquinhos had scored at both ends, Neymar tried to con referee Clement Turpin.

But his attempt at trying to win a penalty went horribly wrong as he was penalised.

Neymar, 30, got to the ball before the defender on right side of the box before falling to the ground.

But he was awarded a second yellow card for simulation.

He had been looking to make a positive return to club football following his disappointing World Cup that was overshadowed by an ankle injury.

But instead the forward was sent off for the FIFTH time in his PSG career.

Fortunately for Neymar, his blushes were spared by Kylian Mbappe, who secured PSG’s sixth Ligue 1 victory on the bounce with a last-gasp penalty.

But the Brazilian will now miss the New Year’s Day trip to Lens, who PSG lead by eight points at the top.
