PSG's Neymar Avoids Broken Ankle but Expected to Miss Real Madrid Clash

The Brazilian was enjoying some downtime following Saturday's 5-2 thrashing of Strasbourg

NEYMAR is set to be out for between six to eight weeks after it was confirmed he has suffered a sprained ankle and a fractured metatarsal.

The Brazilian forward has been prolific in this first season at the club and has racked up 29 goals in as many games in all competitions while also contributing with 17 assists.

The Brazilian winger was forced off the pitch on a stretcher in PSG's 3-0 victory over Olympique Marseille at the Parc des Princes after tussling for a loose ball with Bouna Sarr.

Zinedine Zidane says he is disappointed by the injury sustained by Neymar despite the news coming as a boost to Real Madrid ahead of their Champions League meeting with Paris Saint-Germain.

But to play the World Cup, which is his priority, Neymar should be fine.

Video footage taken by a surveillance camera at the first apartment showed the man and the woman entering the building together. The man, who lives in NY , had arrived as a tourist in Osaka in January, the Asahi Shimbun daily reported.

PSG did not offer a timetable for Neymar's return, however.

The Frenchman, quoted by L'Equipe, said: "I don't like it when a player hurts himself, I am not happy about the injury to Neymar". Not just that, this could have been Neymar's chance to prove exactly why he would be the flawless replacement for the aging Cristiano Ronaldo and why Real Madrid should spend heavily to bring him back to the La Liga. After Sunday's match, PSG manager Unai Emery told reporters he remained confident that Neymar would be able to suit up on March 6.

PSG revealed the extent of Neymar's injured foot late Monday without saying how long he will be sidelined. We're going to stay optimistic. "If I had to say today (whether or not he will face Real) I would rather say yes", said the Spaniard.

L'Equipe, however, claimed on Tuesday that the former Barcelona star could feature for the French giants as they bid to overturn their 3-1 deficit from the first leg.
