Neymar Ruled out of PSG/Leipzig Clash


Neymar has been ruled out of Paris Saint Germain’s clash with RB Leipzig tonight after picking up an injury while away on international duty with Brazil.

PSG had to make do without Neymar in their last Ligue 1 outing against Angers on Friday, which fell on the same day he was in World Cup qualifying action for his country against Uruguay.

Supporters hoped to see him return in time for the Champions’ League group stage encounter against Leipzig tonight, but the French giants have revealed he has returned to Parc des Princes nursing a minor knock.

PSG confirmed his continued absence in an official statement on their website: “Neymar Jr has been suffering from adductor pain since his return from the national team and will have to extend a period of treatment for a few days before a normal return to the group.”

The Ligue 1 leaders have also revealed Argentina international Leandro Paredes will be missing due to a quadriceps issue, while Sergio Ramos is close to returning to training after sitting out the start of the season with a calf problem.

Should there be complications with Neymar’s recovery, he could also be a doubt for their next Ligue 1 outing against Marseille on October 24.
