Neymar is set to miss Paris Saint-Germains Champions League clash with Liverpool next Wednesday due to injury.

The 26-year-old was forced off after just eight minutes in Brazils 1-0 victory over Cameroon on Tuesday evening.

On Wednesday, PSG confirmed that Neymar suffered a thigh strain, which means that he is unlikely to make a full recovery in time for Liverpools trip to the Parc des Princes.

Neymar has been in sublime form for PSG this season with 13 goals in 16 appearances.

And the French champions desperately require a win over Liverpool as they currently sit third in Group C, a point behind Jurgen Klopps side and Napoli.

PSG have also played down the severity of Kylian Mbappes injury.

The 19-year-old was substituted in the first half of Frances 1-0 win over Uruguay on Tuesday evening.

But the French champions have confirmed the striker has only suffered a bruised shoulder, which means he should be fit to face Liverpool.
