PSG lost 6-5 on penalties after Rennes rallied from two goals down to draw 2-2 and the frustrated Brazilian appeared to jab at a spectator who tried to record him on his mobile phone as he went up to collect his runners-up medal.
Neymar’s suspension will begin on Monday, which means he will be eligible for Saturday’s Ligue 1 match against Angers. He will miss PSG’s final two league games against Dijon and Reims.

Neymar has already been suspended for three Champions League games for insulting match officials following the French side’s elimination by Manchester United in the quarter-final.
PSG was also fined 35,000 euros (30,204.8 pounds) after their fans used lasers and fireworks during the match.
