PSG confirm that Neymar is out for the game vs RB Leipzig tomorrow due to pain in his groin.
PSG said in a medical bulletin on Monday that Neymar “had some pain in his groin since returning from international duty and will undergo more treatment over the next few days before returning to full training.”
Neymar, meanwhile, will hope to recover in time to play Marseille next weekend.
“The priority is always the health of the players. ‘Ney’ has a small issue which we hope will only keep him out for a few days,” PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino told reporters on Monday.
The world’s most expensive player scored for Brazil in their 4-1 World Cup qualifying win against Uruguay last Thursday, playing 90 minutes in that game having also featured in their 0-0 draw in Colombia the previous weekend.
He didn’t play for PSG as they beat Angers 2-1 in Ligue 1 last Friday, a game also missed by Lionel Messi.
Leandro Paredes and Sergio Ramos will also miss the Champions League match through injury. PSG were without a number of players for their match on Friday evening, due to their involvement in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers in the early hours of the morning.
PSG currently sit top of Champions League group A having drawn with Club Bruges and beaten last season’s finalists Manchester City. Leipzig, meanwhile, sit bottom of the group.
