The last expulsion took place this Saturday (3), when PSG lost to Lille 1-0 in a game valid for the 31st round of the French Championship. At the end of the match, Neymar was in a hurry to restart a play and fell out with Djaló when trying to get the ball out of the opponent’s hands. The move resulted in a red card for both players.
Disagreements with the opponent were responsible for three of the four expulsions of Neymar in the 105 matches with the shirt of PSG. That had already happened in 2017 against Olympique de Marseille and also in September last year, when he accused Spaniard Alvaro González of racism.
This is the highest rate of expulsions of Neymar in his career. When defending Santos, he received a red card on five occasions, but in 225 games played. This represents an exclusion after every 45 games.
The most controversial of them happened in front of Colo Colo, in Libertadores 2011, when he wore a mask after scoring a great goal. At the time, Santos won 3-2, but Neymar became an embezzlement for the next game, against Cerro Porteño, which was decisive for Santos’ classification towards the knockout stage.
The other two shirts he wore in his career saw only an expulsion from Neymar. For Barcelona, it was a red card in 186 matches. In the Brazilian team, the only exclusion in 103 games happened in the 2015 Copa America, after the match, in a disagreement with the Colombian defender Murillo.
