Kylian Mbappé will again be suspended when Paris Saint-Germain face OGC Nice on Saturday after being slapped with a three-match ban by the French Football Federation.

Mbappé's ban follows his red card in extra time in PSG's defeat against Stade Rennais FC in the Coupe de France final last weekend. The France star was automatically suspended for his side's 3-2 loss at Montpellier Hérault SC on Tuesday, but confirmation of the length of his ban means he will sit out the visit of Nice to the Parc des Princes as well as next weekend's trip to Angers SCO.

The top scorer in Ligue 1 Conforama this season with 30 goals will however be able to return for the champions' final two matches against Dijon FCO and Stade de Reims.

The FFF also confirmed that disciplinary proceedings would begin into Neymar Jr after an incident involving the Brazilian and a spectator at the end of the final at the Stade de France.
