France’s top football club Paris Saint-Germain has to tackle the fight to catch up in the second round match of the Champions League against Real Madrid without superstar Neymar.
According to more detailed investigations, the 26-year-old has suffered a sprain in the right ankle and a hairline fracture in the outer metatarsal bone in the league match on Sunday against Olympique Marseille (3-0).
PSG announced this on Monday night, but did not commit to a length of the injury-related compulsory break. Next Tuesday, the French have to make up in the premier class against the defending champions from Spain a 1: 3 from the first leg. It is also questionable the use of center-back Marquinhos, who suffered a slight muscle injury in his left thigh against Marseille.
Thus, the participation of the two Brazilians in the classic against World Champion Germany on 27 March in Berlin is at risk. Selecao coach Tite wants to announce the squad for the rematch of the 1-7 defeat in the 2014 World Cup semi-final on Friday.
