In the match against Lille, where Christophe Gartier‘s team won thanks to a freekick in stoppage time from Lionel Messi, Neymar suffered another injury.
Although the seriousness of the injury is not yet known, the player was stretchered off with clear signs of pain.
The first thing that comes to the minds of French fans and the world will be the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern Munich, where they will have to come back from a 1-0 deficit at the Allianz Arena.
Social media of course took a more cynical attitude, as the injury is close to the birthday of Neymar’s sister. It just happens to be that Neymar has ‘coincidentally’ rarely missed his sibling’s birthday in the last 10 years.
Only in 2022 did he play on that day against Bordeaux, where he scored but was also whistled after just having been eliminated by Real Madrid in the Champions League.
We will have to wait to see the final extent of the injury and if he can finally be part of the eleven that his coach Galtier puts together to face the Bavarians in one of the most important games of the season for Paris Saint-Germain.
