There is now a major concern for Paris Saint-Germain ahead of its UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash against FC Barcelona next week.
In the second half of PSG’s Coupe de France fixture against Caen, the Brazilian took on a harsh foul by Caen wingback Steeve Yago. Neymar was in clear pain as he seemed to have suffered yet another adductor injury.

Neymar had a minor back-and-forth with both the Caen talent and the match referees after taking on the foul.
After attempting to stay on the pitch, he called for a quick substitution and immediately went straight towards the locker room.
