Neymar, on his injury: I don't think it's serious

PSG player Neymar off injured v Cameroon

PSG said a scan had showed that Neymar strained an adductor muscle in his groin in Brazil's 1-0 friendly win against Cameroon on Tuesday.

Brazil's Neymar leaves the pitch after sustaining an injury as Brazil coach Tite looks on.

Paris Saint-Germain forwards Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are both in a race against time to recover from injuries in time for the crucial Champions League clash with Liverpool, the French club said on Wednesday (Nov 21).

And Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has also suggested Neymar's gorin issue is not a major concern.

PSG's night then got even worse as fellow star forward Mbappe picked up what appeared to be a very painful shoulder injury as France took on Uruguay in their friendly at the Stade de France.

While signs for his availability for the potentially make-or-break Liverpool match are positive, a source told ESPN FC he is likely to miss PSG's Ligue 1 match against Toulouse on Saturday.

"He felt a discomfort, he will need a bit more time to evaluate it and take a scan, but in principle, it's not a serious injury", he said.

Asked whether the Brazil global would be available against Toulouse and Liverpool, Lasmar said: "It's important to wait approximately 24 hours more".

Liverpool now hold a one point lead over PSG heading into matchday five but the Ligue 1 giants would be banking on home advantage to put themselves back into one of the top two slots. "Thanks to everyone who sent me messages wishing me a quick recovery, I don't think it's anything serious", he wrote on Instagram.

He was helped from the field, limping, but not requiring a stretcher, to be replaced by Richarlison, who went on to open the scoring for Brazil.
