Neymar was among five players sent off in just 180 seconds in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 defeat by fierce rivals Marseille in the Ligue 1 encounter.

Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes were also shown red cards for PSG while Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto were given their marching orders for the visiting team.

Neymar and Dimitri Payet were among five players booked in the first half following a bust-up, but Marseille were ahead at the end of it.

Payet’s deep free-kick found its way to Florian Thauvin, whose side-footed volley beat Sergio Rico at the near post in the 31st minutes of the game.

Neymar was sent off for lashing out at Alvaro Gonzalez in the melee as the Brazilian left the pitch at the Parc des Princes he was seen telling the fourth official that he had been subjected to racism.

The Parisians have now lost their opening two Ligue 1 games this season, whereas Marseille have two wins from two.
