Paris Saint-Germain will be without defender Presnel Kimpembe for the next three matches after he was handed a ban by the LFP.

The France international, who won the World Cup this summer, will now miss the Classique clash against Marseille on October 28.

Kimpembe was red-carded against Lyon after a poor challenge on Tanguy Ndombele.

Officials were assisted by VAR during the 5-0 win but the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) have now confirmed that Kimpembe will serve a three-match suspension.

As well as the clash with Marseille, he will also miss upcoming games against Amiens and Lille.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel still has Marquinhos and Thiago Silva at his disposal but his squad will be strained until the end of the month.
