Neymar to miss PSG’s Ligue 1 game against Toulouse
PSG is already without Kylian Mbappe, who has been ruled out for three weeks with a thigh injury and will miss the team’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Bayern Munich on Feb 14. PSG leads the standings with 51 points from 21 games, five ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille.
“Following some pain in his abductor’s muscle, Neymar is still recovering and is training individually,” PSG said in a statement.
“He will resume training with the squad early next week.”
“The absence of Neymar and Kylian is obviously a pity because the three players up front had been connecting well,” said PSG coach Christophe Galtier.
“It will be up to those who play alongside Leo (Lionel Messi) to seize the opportunity.”
