PSG player Neymar off injured v Cameroon

The curse of the global break may have struck for Paris Saint-Germain, with two of their key players suffering injuries in action on Tuesday.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel will be hoping that both of his star players are fit to play when the French champions host Liverpool in Paris on Wednesday with both sides chasing qualification for the knockout phase of the Champions League.

"A 48-hour period of treatment will be undertaken to assess their clinical evolution", PSG said.

Brazil forward Neymar limped out of their 1-0 friendly win over Cameroon on Tuesday but the team doctor calmed fears by saying that the injury did not appear serious.

And Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has also suggested Neymar's gorin issue is not a major concern.

While signs for his availability for the potentially make-or-break Liverpool match are positive, a source told ESPN FC he is likely to miss PSG's Ligue 1 match against Toulouse on Saturday.

"He came off complaining of pain", Lasmar said.




"He felt a discomfort, he will need a bit more time to evaluate it and take a scan, but in principle, it's not a serious injury", he said.

"Thank you to everyone who sent messages wishing me a speedy recovery, I don't think it's serious", Neymar wrote on Instagram.

And Neymar was replaced by Richarlison just eight minutes into Brazil's friendly in Milton Keynes after picking up an adductor muscle problem while attempting a shot.

PSG sit third in Champions League Group C, a point behind leaders Napoli and Liverpool with two matches left to play.

It took Brazil's record since the World Cup to six wins in six games with six clean sheets.

"We remain strong, focused and looking to always get better".
