The Brazilian was cautioned for a challenge on Juanfran during the second half of the Copa del Rey tie at the Vicente Calderon

 Neymar will miss the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg meeting with Atletico Madrid after picking up a booking at Vicente Calderon on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian was shown a yellow card in the 64th minute after jumping into Atletico defender Juanfran during an aerial tussle.

Barcelona had been in dominant form during the first half after goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi had given the visitors a 2-0 half-time lead.

Antoine Griezmann replied for Atletico just before the hour mark and Neymar then collected the caution which will rule him out of next week’s return at Camp Nou.
