10 Neymar suffered a chondrocostal injury last Saturday against Montpellier. Although the match ended, the tests carried out on Tuesday detected a blow to the ribs that prevented him from entering the call to play against Nantes yesterday. However, even though it was a precaution, the lesion may last for more days. Neymar Jr has proposed as a priority this season to play the knockout stages of the Champions League against Dortmund. This was confirmed by L’Equipe today, reporting that the Brazilian is a serious doubt for the meeting that will face PSG and Lyon on Sunday. Although alarms have jumped in Paris, the player will only enter the call if he is 100%. According to Neymar’s environment, the Brazilian star does not have a serious injury. But the proximity of the match against Dortmund (February 18), and the great distance that PSG has in Ligue 1 over second place (15 points above the OM), make Parisians not want to take any risk with respect to their physical condition. In fact, Neymar said at the party of his 28th birthday on Sunday that for the first time he feels fully happy in Paris. Therefore, this may be the season in which you can finally play the final phase of the Champions League in full conditions.
