We will not see Neymar in the PSG jersey before the trip to Monaco on November 20. Until then, the Brazilian striker will treat his adductors. He suffers from an injury which forced him to leave the lawn during the victory in Istanbul Basaksehir in the 25th minute of play on Wednesday night. The Brazilian underwent an MRI on Thursday on his return to Paris, which made it possible to refine the diagnosis. While the player was rather reassuring, he will still be forfeited until the international break in ten days. Information disclosed by RMC Sport that we are able to confirm.
In the very busy schedule of PSG, even a fairly short absence comes at a high price. Neymar is thus deprived of the trip to Nantes, Saturday in Ligue 1, and that, important, in Leipzig in the Champions League (Wednesday). He will also miss the reception in Rennes, Saturday November 7 at 9 p.m.
The main uncertainty now concerns the Brazilian selection. It is due to play against Venezuela and Uruguay on November 14 and 18, as part of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and number 10 has naturally been called up. The availability of Neymar for this gathering would not be defined yet, even if it would obviously arrange the business of PSG that his star avoids a new round trip across the Atlantic.
On the Paris side, the 28-year-old must be handed over for the home stretch until the winter break, and in particular for the last three decisive meetings of the group stage of the Champions League with a view to qualifying for the 8th final. Neymar has already missed four of the eight Ligue 1 matches this season, due to Covid-19 and suspension in particular.
