Paris Saint-Germain was unstoppable as they dominated Olympique de Marseille with a 3-0 home victory in their Ligue 1 matchup at the Parc Des Princes Stadium.
However, the club suffered a disappointing blow when Brazilian superstar Neymar picked up a nasty ankle injury.
The world-record signing striker appeared to roll his right ankle and he was in tears as he needed to be stretchered off the field by the medical staff with few minutes left to play.
Meanwhile, PSG boss Unai Emery remains optimistic that Neymar will be fit to face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League do-or-die game on Wednesday, March 3, 2018 – 3:45 AM (GMT +8) as they need to overturn a 3-1 deficit.
“The first examination in the locker room revealed that it was a twist to the ankle. Now we will do some extra medical examination to find out what this twist is. We’re optimistic. For his participation in the match against Real, if I had to say yes or no, I would say yes.” Emery stated
Moving forward, PSG will be facing Marseille again in French Cup quarterfinal on Thursday, March 1 and Thiago Silva predicted that the Brazilian international will most likely miss the game as he needs to rest.
“Neymar already had a swollen ankle. I’m not a doctor, but I don’t think he’ll be available on Wednesday (CET). He has to rest.” Silva addressed
Since his record move from Barcelona to PSG, the 26-year-old forward has scored 29 goals with 17 assists in 30 matches this season.
