You have to go all the way back to track the origin of this story, but the law remains undefeated and PSG will have to face Reims without two of their main players on the pitch: Achraf Hakimi and Randal Kolo Muani.

In the aftermath of the PSG vs OM game played back on Sept. 24, four PSG players, namely Achraf Hakimi, Randal Kolo Muani, Ousmane Dembele, and Layvin Kurzawa, received a one-game suspension for engaging in insulting chants.

Despite apologizing on social media shortly after the incident, the LFP disciplinary committee handed down the punishment, indicating that the next yellow card any of them received would result in a one-match suspension.

That is what happened to Hakimi and Kolo Muani in the last game played by PSG last weekend against Brest when both received yellow cards.

Hakimi's caution came during a skirmish between PSG and Brest players just before Kylian Mbappe's late game-winning penalty, while Kolo Muani's card was a result of a foul committed out of frustration at the end of the match.

None of these two will be available to play in the upcoming match against Reims to be played by PSG on Nov. 11.

Additionally, six other PSG players, including Kylian Mbappe, Lee Kang-In, Ousmane Dembele, Layvin Kurzawa, Fabian Ruiz, and Warren Zaire-Emery, face the threat of suspension if they receive another yellow card.

With a matchup against Monaco in late November, don't rule out watching many of those players forcing a suspension earlier by getting a yellow card next weekend instead of waiting and leaving it all up in the air risking missing the pivotal game against Monaco, which currently sit third in the Ligue 1 table.
