Neymar will not feature against his former club

Neymar will miss Wednesday night’s Champions League second leg against former club Barcelona with an adductor injury.

The PSG forward picked up the injury in a French Cup game against Caen on 10 February. He is back in light training but is still in the recovery phase.

“Sergio Rico is not participating in training this morning for personal reasons,” the club revealed. “Neymar JR resumed partial training with the squad last week and will continue his individual recovery work. A new assessment will be made in the coming days. Juan Bernat continues his rehabilitation and his personal recovery. Moise Kean is still in isolation due to Covid-19.”

The French champions are leading the tie 4-1 after a stunning performance by Kylian Mbappe in the Camp Nou.
