ANGEL DI MARIA was accused of spitting at Marseille star Alvaro Gonzalez in a mad end to Sunday’s Le Classique.
Paris Saint-Germain’s defeat to their Ligue 1 rivals descended into acrimony after five players were sent off in stoppage time
An on-field brawl was sparked by a stern challenge in the centre-circle and escalated as the opposing sides launched kicks and punches at each other.
PSG winger Neymar was one man sent off for punching Gonzalez in the back of the head.
The pair were seen arguing moments before the melee and Neymar, 28, later claimed the punch was in retaliation for alleged racist abuse aimed at him by the Marseille defender.
Gonzalez, 30, had earlier been the subject of an alleged spit by Di Maria.
Marseille boss Andre Villas Boas was angered that the referee and VAR failed to punish the 37th minute incident, which was captured by TV cameras.
The ex-Spurs coach admitted after the game he had not investigated the racism accusation but stated his belief that Di Maria should be punished.
He told Telefoot: “I don’t know. I hope not, there is no place for racism in football.
“It’s a serious fault if it happened but I don’t think so.
