Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar has been the most fouled player across Europe's major domestic competitions this season. Neymar, 26, has been on the receiving end of rough treatment from opponents 96 times, seven more than Nabil Fekir of Lyon, who also plays in Ligue 1. French news outlet RMC Sport created a top 10 of the most fouled players in Ligue 1, which Neymar leads with an average one foul every 17 minutes and 46 seconds. And PSG's No. 10 remains top of the pile when the list is expanded to cover the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A too. PSG's Marco Verratti also features on RMC's list in sixth, with a foul against him every 30 minutes and 49 seconds, but the Italy international is not placed when expanded to all of Europe. However, another Ligue 1-based player, Bordeaux's Malcom, is seventh in the overall rankings with 75 fouls against him so far this campaign.
