Neymar , the Brazilian star of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) , who retired injured in his left adductor muscle on Wednesday during the victory against Basaksehir (2-0) in the Champions League , will be out for the next matches, according to a published information this Thursday on the RMC Sport chain .
“The Brazilian, who tried to stay in the game before finally asking for the change, underwent an MRI that revealed an injury to the adductor,” says the site, which does not promptly clarify the degree of muscle injury.
Neymar will miss the next two French Ligue 1 games, in Nantes on Saturday and against Rennes in the Parc des Princes on November 7, as well as the Champions League match in Germany against RB Leipzig next Wednesday.
“At the moment no information has been offered about their participation in the concentration of the Brazilian team,” indicates RMC Sport. It is that the Tite team must face Venezuela and Uruguay respectively on November 14 and 18 in qualifying matches for the Qatar 2022 World Cup .

In this way, Ney could return with PSG for the game in Monaco on November 20. The gunner joins a saturated Parisian infirmary, with Marco Verratti, Mauro Icardi, Leandro Paredes, Julian Draxler and Juan Bernat. After having missed the start of the season because of covid-19 and two other games after his expulsion against Marseille, Neymar has two goals and 4 assists.
PSG won on Wednesday by 2 to 0 thanks to the goals of Moise Kean in a match in which he needed to add three as his rival this Wednesday is the weakest in Group H, an area in which they are also the RB Leipzig and Manchester United . The French team had lost in their debut against the British 2-1 in Paris, so yesterday's victory gives air to their continental aspirations.
Brazil already lost Philippe Coutinho through injury and Lucas Paquetá , from Olympique Lyon , was called up in his place. “According to the doctor of the Brazilian team, Rodrigo Lasmar, there is not enough time for the player to recover and participate in the next two rounds of the qualifying rounds,” the Brazilian Football Confederation explained.
Apart from Paquetá, 23, that position can be held by Everton Ribeiro or Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, Richarlison or Everton 'Cebolinha'. Brazil won in their first two qualifying appearances, 5-0 against Bolivia and 4-2 against Peru, for which they quickly positioned themselves as the leader of the table along with Lionel Scaloni's Argentina who also has perfect scores.
