The injury occurs six days before the visit to Camp Nou, next Tuesday, in the first leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League against Barcelona
The Brazilian attacker Neymar Jr. (PSG) will be out for about four weeks due to a muscle injury and will not be able to play the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Barcelona, which will be played on Tuesday, his team announced Thursday.
Neymar suffered the injury from a hard tackle he received on Wednesday night during a French Cup match against Caen.
The medical tests to which he was subjected today show an injury to the left abductor magnus “and an unavailability of about four weeks is expected, depending on the evolution,” said a statement from Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazilian retired injured in the match of the 30th final of the domestic Cup between his team, and Caen, a week before the match against his former teammates.
‘Ney’ received a strong input from the player Yago and went directly to the locker room with an abductor discomfort in the 60th minute of the match. He was replaced by Kylian Mbappé, who was a starting substitute.
The injury occurs six days before the visit to Camp Nou, next Tuesday, in the first leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League against Barcelona and is still in doubt for the return match.
