PARIS - Bad news befalls Paris Saint Germain ahead of their match against Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League. PSG striker Neymar will certainly miss the match which will be held at the Camp Nou Stadium, Barcelona, on Wednesday (17/2).
This Brazilian player suffered an injury when PSG against Caen in the French Cup tournament on Wednesday (10/2) French time. He was also confirmed not to be brought to the group of players who left for Barcelona.
"After going through a clinical examination and scan process, it is estimated that he will be out for about four weeks depending on the progress of his injury," PSG said in a statement as quoted by the Express Tribune website.
PSG are hoping for Neymar to return for the second leg which is set to take place in France on March 10. Neymar also expressed his sadness at the team leaving for Barcelona.
"It is unbelievable sadness, excruciating pain and constant crying. Once again, for the time being, I will stop doing what I love most in life, which is playing football," Neymar said via his Instagram account.
Neymar also expressed his outpouring because he was often the target of tackling opponents. He said he did not understand what problems he was doing on the pitch.
"Sometimes I feel uncomfortable because of my style of play, because I dribble and get fouled constantly, I don't know if the problem is with me or what I'm doing on the pitch," said Neymar.
This is not the first time Neymar has missed a European level competition. Previously, Neymar missed the Champions League final against Bayern Munich due to a thigh injury.
Neymar has scored six goals in five group stage matches this season. To fill that void, PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino relies on Kylian Mbappe, Moise Kean and Mauro Icardi for the role of goalscorer in the Barcelona goal.
"Every game is important. I believe that PSG have to win every game. If we lose you will criticize me for not taking the French Cup important. We make decisions, we analyze, we try to find the best team," said Pochettino.
