Already absent in the middle of the week against Montpellier, Neymar will also miss the reception of Toulouse this Saturday.
Kylian Mbappé will not be the only major absentee from PSG on Saturday during the duel against Toulouse in the league (at 4 p.m.). This will also be the case for Neymar. The Brazilian is still not recovered from the problem with the adductor who deprived him of the trip to Montpellier last Wednesday.
The PSG attack strongly decimated
In its medical point, PSG said that the Brazilian international was still suffering from discomfort. “He continues his care and individual training. He will resume the collective sessions at the beginning of next week, ”it was also specified. The former Barcelona player should therefore be back for the shock against OM, counting for the round of 16 of the Coupe de France.

In the absence of Neymar, Christophe Galtier should certainly start Hugo Ekitiké again against Téfécé. Given the lack of offensive options, the Parisian coach could still opt for a 4-4-2 diamond rather than a 4-3-3. “In the absence of Neymar and Mbappé, I have to build the team around Leo. He will be where he likes to play,” he said at a press conference on Friday.
Note that in addition to Neymar and Mbappé, Sergio Ramos is also out of this league game. He’s got an adductor contracture. He too should be back during the clash at the Vélodrome.
