Football news - Neymar injury panic ahead of PSG match with Barcelona
Paris Saint-Germain could be without their Brazilian striker Neymar for next week's clash with Barcelona in the Champions League. The 29-year-old went off injured against Caen in their French Cup game on Wednesday night, which throws into doubt his involvement in the Barca game next Tuesday.
Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian forward Neymar (2nd-R) drives the ball during the French Cup round-of-64 football match between Stade Malherbe Caen and Paris Saint-Germain at the Michel-d'Ornano Stadium in Caen, northwestern France on February 10, 2021
After the match, Kean played down fears over Neymar’s injury, saying: “All is well, he is ready. Tomorrow, in training, he will recuperate. He will be ready for the match [against Barcelona].”
Mauricio Pochettino was forced to take off the striker on the hour mark and was replaced by Kylian Mbappe, and the injury comes just after Neymar had returned from a month’s absence due to an ankle injury.
PSG reached the final of the Champions League last season only to suffer a defeat to Bayern Munich, and have yet to win the trophy in their history.
