PSG sweat over Neymar injury ahead of return leg against Real Madrid

02 March 2018

Neymar was forced to leave the field on a stretcher after apparently twisting his ankle on Sunday during PSG's 3-0 league win over Marseille, which cast doubt on whether the Brazilian star would take the field against Real Madrid on March 6, reports Efe.

"I watched the game live and I hope Neymar's injury is nothing risky", he added.

It's a huge blow to the world's most expensive player, whose dream of winning the Ballon d'Or by moving to PSG is only likely to be realised by winning the Champions League.

PSG are 3-1 down to Real Madrid following the first leg and face a struggle to qualify for the next round, the quarter-finals set to be played on April 3 and the semis on April 24. Despite that, manager Zidane refused to revel in Neymar's woe.

PSG are 14 points clear of Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 after Sunday's game, but the Champions League is crucial to the French club, who lost to Neymar's Barcelona at the same stage last season.

The Frenchman, quoted by L'Equipe, said: "I don't like it when a player hurts himself, I am not happy about the injury to Neymar".
