Neymar Stretchered Off For PSG During Win Over Marseille


Neymar was stretchered off during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday after appearing to twist his ankle.

PSG were forced to play the final 10 minutes of the game at the Parc des Princes with a man down as they had already used all of their substitutes when the Brazilian left the field of play.

Coach Unai Emery was hopeful on Neymar’s condition and told the club’s website: “The injury to Neymar was the only black mark. We hope it is nothing serious, we will wait for the scans.”

The world’s most expensive player could still be doubtful for PSG’s Champions League second-leg tie against Real Madrid in the French capital on March 6.

The fixture against Europe’s reigning champions hangs in the balance after Real Madrid earned a 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on February 14.

Neymar – who has 29 goals and 17 assists this term – is the club’s second-highest scorer and has featured in every minute of PSG’s Champions League campaign so far.

The 26-year-old was involved in two of the goals on Sunday night before coming off, with Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe ensuring PSG extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 14 points.

Mbappe’s 10th-minute opener made him the youngest ever goalscorer in Le Classique at the age of 19.
