Goals by Kylian Mbappe, a Rolando own-goal and Edinson Cavani were enough to seal all three points for PSG as they defeated Olympic Marseille 3-0 at the Parc des Princes.
However, the comprehensive win was dented by Neymar’s injury as the Brazil international was stretchered off with 13 minutes remaining in what looks like a serious injury to his right ankle.
The frontman was tracking back behind Bouna Sarr when his right ankle awkwardly twisted, leaving him in agony on the turf.
The injury has come at a very crucial point for boss Unai Emery and his players who are aiming to overturn a 3-1 deficit in the last 16 Champions League tie with Real Madrid, with the second leg on Tuesday, March 6.
“If I had to pick my Real Madrid side now, I would say that Neymar could feature,” Emery said after the game. “We are optimistic.”
