Paris, Nov 22 (IANS) Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forwards Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe are to be out of action due to injuries.
Neymar strained his right adductor during his national team’s 1-0 friendly win over Cameroon on Tuesday while Mbappe bruised his right shoulder during the French national team’s 1-0 friendly victory over Uruguay on the same day, reports Efe news.
PSG said on the side’s official website on Wednesday night that both players underwent medical examinations, adding that “they will undergo a 48-hour period of treatment before further evaluation”.
PSG is set to host Toulouse on Saturday in a French top-tier Ligue 1 match before facing Liverpool in a key UEFA Champions League group game on November 28.
The French side is third in the CL Group C, just one point behind second-placed Liverpool. A defeat against its English rival could mean PSG’s elimination from the Champions League.
