PSG confirmed the injury on Wednesday, ruling him out of the club's Champions League last-16, second leg, against Spanish holders Real Madrid.

Like Neymar, the Germany global plays his best football as a left winger, and if the Brazilian is out for the foreseeable future, Draxler will have a rematch with Marseille in the Coupe de France on Wednesday and Saturday's Ligue 1 contest at Troyes to work on his form ahead of the showdown with Real.

Angel Di Maria, in place of Neymar on the front three, had his response by opening up the scoring account for PSG in stoppage time of the first half with a powerful shot just outside the penalty area.

Speaking to Brazilian media outlets upon his arrival here from Paris, Lasmar said he will operate on Saturday to fix the fractured fifth metatarsal in the 26-year-old's right foot in Brazil.

"After an initial treatment period of three days in line with a strict medical protocol, a joint decision has been taken between the medical staffs of both Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team", PSG said in a statement.

"We will have more details after the procedure".

"Neymar is, of course, upset, sad, down", surgeon Rodrigo Lasmar said.

The drama is a big personal setback for Neymar.


Neymar has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since his 222 million-euro ($264 million) move from Barcelona last August.

Star Brazilian striker Neymar runs the risk not to go for the upcoming world Cup in Russian Federation.

While Neymar faces a race against time to play in the World Cup finals, there's another star striker who fancies his chances of being on the pitch in Russian Federation. This means he's not racing against time but against conventional soccer wisdom, which states players need a run of around seven to 10 games to reach maximum sharpness. Their attention is entirely trained on the World Cup.

"The league is alive and I am optimistic, always, until the end". He has enough time to recover fully.

"This interruption will give him a bit of a break".

"We're all ready except Neymar and we are preparing for Real together".

The worse than previously announced prognosis came as the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker, 26, arrived in Rio de Janeiro from Paris for Saturday's operation.
