Neymar ruled out of the Champions League clash against Barcelona
Neymar’s return to Barcelona with Paris Saint-Germain in Champions League ruined by thigh injury
Neymar had sustained a grade 2 injury in his left adductor, which will sideline him for approximately
four weeks, the French club have confirmed.
The Brazil forward has been ruled out for four weeks with a thigh injury suffered in the French Cup win over
Caen, ruling out his return to play in the Camp Nou on February 16.
He is also a doubt for the second leg on March 10 at the Parc des Princes in a major blow for
Mauricio Pochettino, who is already without Angel Di Maria for the game in Spain next week.
PSG confirmed on Thursday: “Neymar Jr suffered an injury to the left adductor longus on Wednesday evening.
Upon analysis of the clinical examination and imaging examinations, an unavailability of approximately
four weeks is expected depending on the course.”
Barcelona has been attempting to convey Neymar again to the Nou Camp since, however, a deal has not
materialized, and now Messi’s personal Barcelona future is unsure, with PSG eager to signal him on a free
switch this summertime.
