Neymar stretchered off for PSG during win over Marseille

Neymar was stretchered off during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday after appearing to twist his ankle.

PSG were forced to play the final 10 minutes of the game at the Parc des Princes with a man down as they had already used all of their substitutes when the Brazilian left the field of play.

The world’s most expensive player is now a doubt for PSG’s Champions League second-leg tie against Real Madrid in the French capital on March 6.

The fixture against Europe’s reigning champions hangs in the balance after Real Madrid earned a 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on February 14.

Neymar – who has 29 goals and 17 assists this term – is the club’s second-highest scorer and has featured in every minute of PSG’s Champions League campaign thus far.

The 26-year-old was involved in two of the goals before coming off, with Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe ensuring PSG extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 14 points.
