Neymar will miss Tuesday’s Champions Leaguematch against RB Leipzig due to injury, according to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
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 Leaguegroup stage encounter against Leipzig on Tuesday night, 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.
