Montpellier central defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has been banned for five matches after elbowing an opponent.
Montpellier, the Ligue 1 champions, said captain Yanga-Mbiwa had been sanctioned by the French League's disciplinary committee.
He elbowed Romain Hamouma in the 1-1 home draw against St Etienne last Friday, but escaped punishment from the referee.
The fve-match ban means he will miss games against Rennes, Nice, Bordeaux (in the League Cup), Troyes and PSG. His Ligue 1 return will come against Valenciennes in mid-November.
