Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar faces a month on the sidelines with a foot and ankle injury, all but ruling him out of his side’s Champions League Real Madrid vs PSG 2nd leg clash.
The Brazilian was a late casualty in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash with Marseille, in which the French leaders ran out 3-0 winners. Neymar was left in tears after tangling with Marseille’s Bouna Sarr, with all signs pointing toward a damaged ankle.
While preliminary tests ruled out a fracture or serious sprain in the joint on Sunday evening, subsequent examinations revealed he has fractured a metatarsal bone in his foot.
PSG did not provide a timeline for Neymar’s return, but the injury typically requires a minimum of one month on the sidelines — essentially confirming he will not be able to take part in PSG’s bid for Champions League revenge against the Blancos.
