The sequence of meetings weighs on PSG and its organizations. After the sluggish victory in Istanbul on Wednesday in the Champions League (0-2), Thomas Tuchel insisted on this point. Neymar, released in the 25th minute, is no exception to the rule. While the Parisians only landed around 4 a.m. at Roissy airport, the Brazilian striker must take exams this Thursday to define the severity of his adductor injury.
After the match, his feelings were rather reassuring and the star hoped that the injury was not so serious that he feared it at the time of his release, as he confided to those around him. This trend confirms Thomas Tuchel’s statements at a press conference: “I still hope that it is not an injury. He felt he was uncomfortable, not free. That’s why he came out. I haven’t spoken to the doctor but we have to wait for the pictures tomorrow (Editor’s note: this Thursday). “At the microphone of RMC Sport, the coach spoke of” discomfort “and clarified:” With our very tight schedule, it can cost a few games. “
It is very unlikely that Neymar will be traveling to Nantes on Saturday. The star striker of PSG had been left to rest at the end of the international break during the trip to Nîmes and has sometimes, like other players of the team, benefited from adapted training. Neymar has already missed four of the ten official meetings since the start of the season, due to the Covid and then to his suspension after PSG-OM. It is obvious that no risk will be taken with it, especially in an area of the body where injuries can last if resumed too early.
