Paris St Germain forward Neymar has had his three-match Champions League ban for insulting match officials reduced to two games by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The 27-year-old was punished over social media comments made in the wake of his side’s controversial 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United in March which denied them a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

PSG challenged the decision and – after UEFA had initially dismissed the claim – the Ligue 1 champions appealed to CAS – who ruled on Tuesday that the Brazil international will now serve a two-match suspension.
