Its no rumor that Neymar, the most expensive player in the world, picked up a foot injury that will rule him out of both legs.
Last week, Manchester United’s chances of reaching the next knockout stages of the competition were further boosted when the news was confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain would be without their star striker, the Brazilian Neymar.
The absence of the Brazilian striker was undeniably felt after their 2-1 loss to Lyon this past week-end but they still have a 10 point lead over second placed LOSC plus they have two games in hand .
PSG kylian Mbappe spoke to the press after the defeat to Lyon here is what he had to say ” Playing without Neymar? Well it surely isn’t easy since Neymar is one of the best players in the World. Every defender fears playing against him so it is a big loss for us at the moment. Ask Valverde if it’s easy to play a game with Lionel Messi or ask Max Allegri if it’s easy playing without Cristiano Ronaldo. These are players that change games every time they step on the pitch. We certainly miss Neymar but we have to accept the situation and look forward. Defeat to Lyon? We aren’t pleased but we will have to keep on working hard” .
