PSG hosted Ajaccio for the MD35 of the Ligue 1 season last Sunday and earned three points thanks to a sound and solid 5-0 trouncing of the visitors in PSG's second-to-last game at the Parc des Princes this season.

Achraf Hakimi returned to the pitch after missing one game having seen a red card in the match before. Turns out the Morocco international didn't learn from his errors and couldn't control his nerves, getting sent off once more in last weekend's game against Ajaccio.

After a few days of deliberation, the French disciplinary committee has announced Hakimi's suspension: the right-back will miss two games because of his scuffle with Ajaccio's Mangani.

The Corsican player hit Hakimi in the arm and the Parisian reacted by slapping his opponent. Following that interaction, Hakimi was sent off, already deep into the second half.

The Ligue 1 announced on Wednesday that the 24-year-old will be suspended for the next two matches, therefore missing the games of Paris Saint-Germain against Strasbourg and Auxerre. He will return on June 3 against Clermont.

With PSG facing the chance of winning the Ligue 1 title next weekend if they earn more points than Lens, Hakimi is in a very realistic position of missing PSG's 11th Ligue 1 championship-clinching game.

Even if PSG are not able to beat Lens' result this weekend, the most probable outcome is that they match them and then do so once more in two weeks, although that might also mean that Hakimi, inevitably because of this new suspension, also missing on celebrating through a game on the pitch with his teammates.

We'll see whether or not Hakimi stays in Paris ahead of next season or if PSG decide to move on from him, but one thing is for certain and that's the fact that the Morocco international won't be eligible for the title-clinching games played by Paris Saint-Germain next.
