Neymar sidelined with fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle

Neymar is a major injury doubt for Paris Saint-Germain in their massive Champions League last 16 second-leg clash against Real Madrid next week.

Neymar wanted PSG to sign Coutinho from Liverpool last month, only for the Brazil worldwide to end up joining Barcelona instead. Four years ago, Neymar missed the semifinal against Germany with injury and Brazil were thrashed 7-1. "I do not think that one player would affect next week's match, because there will always be a substitute if Neymar can't play, and he (the substitute) will be motivated and ready to play the game", Zidane said.

However, the Spanish media have suggested Neymar faces at least a month out which would mean missing next Tuesday's must-win match.

Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte is reporting that Neymar will need foot surgery after he suffered a crack in his fifth metatarsal Sunday against Marseille, sidelining him for three months.

Sunday will be most sunny and dry with a high of around 6C. "Top temperatures of just 5C to 8C, coldest in the east and north". It will be "exceptionally cold." Snow is expected mostly in eastern areas, with snow set to accumulate in some parts.

Globo Esporte were first to report on Tuesday morning that the Brazilian worldwide would miss two months of football, threatening his participation in PSG's Ligue 1 and Champions League campaigns, plus his country's preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Emery acknowledged that tests since Neymar was injured in the Ligue 1 win over Marseille have reduced his chances of featuring against Real, but he said there is still hope.

There are even fears that the talented Brazilian attacker will have a race against time to be ready for the World Cup in Russian Federation in June.

"I believe Madrid will go through, they are in a strong position", Aguero told reporters after Sunday's League Cup final.

"We'll see the passing of the next few days to make a decision". We are going to wait.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists for PSG this season. The proof is that here today we talked more about Ligue 1 than about other leagues.

This will come as a huge blow to the French giants as they will now have to overturn the 1-3 reverse to Real Madrid in the Champions League without the mercurial forward.
