The French league's disciplinary committee decided on Thursday to ''provisionally suspend Brandao starting from Friday, August 22'' ahead of a hearing on Sept. 18.
After Bastia's 2-0 loss to PSG, Brandao waited for Thiago Motta in the tunnel and headbutted the Italy international, leaving him with a broken nose.
After the incident, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi called for Brandao to be banned for life.
