Brazilian Neymar left on a stretcher from his Paris Saint-Germain team’s match against Lille, which is currently in the French Football League.
The Brazilian star made the first goal for Kylian Mbappe, and scored the second goal in the first half of the match at the “Princes’ Park” stadium.
But when Saint-Germain was leading 2/1, Neymar was forced to leave shortly after the start of the second half after a collision with Benjamin Andre, as it appears that the player injured his right ankle.
In the end, Neymar (31 years old) was no longer able to walk and it was clear that he was in distress while being transported off the field.
Neymar’s injury could represent a painful blow to Saint-Germain’s hopes in the Champions League, as the team lost the first leg in the Round of 16 to Bayern Munich with a clean goal.
There are only less than 3 weeks left before the second leg next March, and Christophe Galtier, the coach of the team who lost Nuno Mendes’ efforts due to injury in the first half, hopes that Neymar’s injury will not be serious.
