PSG’s injured Neymar to miss Barca ECL tie | Ralph-Lauren

Must Read


Paris St Germain forward Neymar will be out for up to four weeks with an adductor muscle injury and could miss both matches against Barcelona in the round of 16 of the Champions League.

The French champions said on Thursday that medical examinations revealed a tear along the Brazilian superstar’s left adductor.

PSG travel to Barcelona in the first leg next Tuesday, with the return leg in Paris on March 10.

Neymar limped off after being fouled from behind during a French Cup game against Caen on Wednesday.

It’s the latest injury in Neymar’s stop-start career with the French champions.

He’s been sidelined for spells with foot, groin, rib and ankle injuries since joining them four years ago for a record 222 million euros ($A347 million) from Barcelona.

Only last month, Neymar was stretchered off with a left ankle injury sustained in a league game against Lyon.

Two years ago, he missed 10 weeks with a right foot injury.

He also broke a toe in the same foot a year before, putting his place at the 2018 World Cup in doubt.

PSG are also waiting on winger Angel Di Maria, who could miss next week’s game after hurting his thigh playing against Marseille on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Keylor Navas has missed the past four games with bruised ribs and an adductor injury.
