PSG confirm Neymar and Kylian Mbappe injuries ahead of Liverpool clash

The duo were both were substituted due to injuries while playing for Brazil and France on Tuesday night.

The curse of the global break may have struck for Paris Saint-Germain, with two of their key players suffering injuries in action on Tuesday.

"They will undergo a 48-hour period of treatment before further evaluation", PSG said in a statement.

On Wednesday, PSG announced that Mbappe has a bruised shoulder, while scans on Neymar showed a right adductor strain.

Neymar lasted just eight minutes of Brazil's clash with Cameroon yesterday before limping off with a groin issue.

While signs are positive for his availability for a potentially make-or-break Champions League match against Liverpool next week, the source said that he is likely to miss PSG's match against Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday.


With all four teams in Group C of the Champions League still in with a chance of finishing top of the group, every point is vital and Liverpool will be desperate to avoid defeat when they travel to Paris next week in their penultimate group match.

The forward suffered a muscular problem as he attempted to shoot and was replaced in the eighth minute.

"He felt discomfort", Lasmar said. "He will need a bit more time to evaluate it and take a scan, but in principle it is not a serious injury".

Thanks to all who sent me messages wishing me a good recovery, I think it was nothing serious.

Neymar's replacement in the Brazilian lineup, Everton's Richarlison, headed in on the stroke of half-time to secure victory for the Selecao.

"These last games were important to recover from the biggest hit that was the World Cup, we remained strong, focused and aiming to be increasingly better".
