Neymar Alvaro Gonzalez

Neymar and Alvaro Gonzalez will not face any additional punishment following the Brazilian's accusation of racism against the defenderafter he was sent off in Paris Saint-Germain's loss to Marseille earlier this month.

Neymar was dismissed for slapping Gonzalez across the back of the head and, after the match, hesaid that his actions were prompted by a racist taunt from the Marseille man.

Leandro Paredes and Dario Benedetto, who sparked the brawl after a scuffle, were both sent off as well while PSG defender Layvin KurzawaandMarseille's Jordan Amavisaw straight reds for violent acts during the melee.

The PSG forward claimed he was called a "monkey son of a bitch" and added that his "only regret is not hitting that asshole in the face" in a string of social media posts following the game.

Gonzalez, meanwhile, denied Neymar's claims, saying that Neymar needed "to learn how to lose and accept it on the field".

Afterwards, Neymar was accused of making racist insults towardsMarseille's Hiroko Sakai as well, with Marquinhosleaping to the defence of his team-mate.

In the weeks since,Neymar received a two-match ban for his dismissal, with the French federation announcing that it would investigate the claims of racism.

However, that investigation has produced no suspensions for either player for the alleged racism or the war of words on social media after the match.

“After examining the case, hearing the players and representatives of the clubs, the Commission notes that it does not have sufficient convincing evidence to allow it to establish the materiality of the facts of statements of a discriminatory nature by Alvaro Gonzalez at the against Neymar during the meeting, nor against Neymar towards Alvaro Gonzalez." the federation said in a statement.

Marseille added: "Olympique de Marseille are satisfied with the decision of the disciplinary committee. Alvaro Gonzalez is not racist, any accusation against him on this subject is unfair and unfounded. Olympique de Marseille is and will remain the club of anti-racism."

As part of that initial suspension, Neymar was also hit with a one-match suspended ban, which would come into effect if the Brazilian engages in further violent conduct upon his return.

Paredes received an identical sentence, while Kurzawa, who kicked out at Amavi, was hit with a six-match ban for his role in the melee.

Benedetto, meanwhile, was suspended forone match, while Amvai was suspended three games for throwing a punch.

PSG currently sit seventh in Ligue 1 ahead of Friday's match with Angers, having earned nine points from the three matches after a pair of season-opening defeats.
