The Brazilian faces a race against time to make the second leg against Real Madrid of the Champions League with his side staring elimination in the face.
Neymar’s hopes of playing against Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League could be in tatters after he was stretchered off against Marseille on Sunday night in the Ligue 1 derby between the French sides.
He turned his ankle with Paris Saint-Germain leading 3-0 and had to be carried off and he was visibly distraught, which does not bode well for Unai Emery’s hopes of turning over a 3-1 deficit in the second leg even with home advantage.
it was a non-contact injury and he just seemed to turn his ankle which could mean a couple of weeks out depending on whether he did ligament damage or just more soft tissue damage. He faces a race against the clock to be fit though with the biggest game in PSG’s history looming.
