PSG’s injury concerns are piling up ahead of the return leg against Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16 on March 6 as it has emerged that Marquinhos is extremely unlikely to be fit for the game in the Parc des Princes after picking up a hamstring problem during the match against Marseille on Sunday.
PSG hopeful on Neymar but Marquinhos doubtful for Madrid clash
Neymar also limped out of the 3-0 Classique victory with an ankle injury and although a fracture has been ruled out there is no guarantee that the Brazilian star will be fit to face Madrid next week. However, PSG are optimistic that further tests on Wednesday, after the inflammation has died down, will reveal nothing serious. However, Neymar remains a doubt for the game against Zinedine Zidane’s side, who hold a 3-1 advantage after the first leg in the Bernabéu.
The Ligue 1 side are considerably more concerned about Marquinhos, who is a key defender in Unai Emery’s side. Tests carried out on Monday suggest that the Brazil international could face up to a month out and is a serious doubt for the return leg in Paris.
