Neymar was reportedly restrained by club staff as he confronted referee Damir Skomina after the game in a furious tunnel bust-up.

He then wrote on Instagram: "This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.

"There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back! Go f*** yourselves!”

It is understood that UEFA are furious by Neymar's behaviour and have now announced that the 27-year-old is under investigation for his outburst.
