PSG’s Neymar to miss Champions League clash with Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has been ruled out for four weeks due to a hip injury and will miss the Champions League round-of-16 first leg clash with Barcelona at Camp Nou on Feb. 16.

The Brazil international came off injured during PSG’s 1-0 victory over Caen on Wednesday and test results the following day showed the extent of the damage.

“Neymar suffered an injury to the left abductor on Wednesday evening,” a PSG statement read. “On analysis of the clinical examination and imaging examinations, he will be unavailable for approximately four weeks depending on the course.”

Exactly four weeks from the night he suffered the injury would bring Neymar to March 10, which is when the return leg between PSG and Barcelona and Parc des Princes takes place.
