Neymar to miss PSG game against Lyon due to rib injury

AP , Saturday 8 Feb 2020
Neymar limped off injured against Nigeria on Sunday and will miss the next four weeks, his club Paris Saint-Germain said on Monday (AFP)

Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain's home game against Lyon in the French league on Sunday as he continues to recover from a rib injury.

The Brazil star hurt his ribs in a physical encounter against Montpellier last weekend and missed league leader PSG's trip to play Nantes on Tuesday night.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel said Neymar trained normally on Saturday morning but ``it's too early for him to play'' against Lyon.

Tuchel did not say whether Neymar would be ready for the French Cup quarterfinal away to Dijon on Wednesday.

PSG has a league game at Amiens next Saturday before traveling to face Borussia Dortmund three days later in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 game on Feb. 18.
