PSG dealt Neymar & Mbappe injury blows ahead of Liverpool clash

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have tonight been dealt a double-blow on the injury-front.

PSG vs Liverpool

Thomas Tuchel’s men are set to welcome Liverpool to the Parc des Princes next week, for a crucial Champions League group stage clash.

PSG currently sit a point behind joint-group C leaders Napoli and Liverpool, with 2 games remaining.

As such, a defeat for the hosts in the French capital could prove decisive regarding their hopes of advancing to the Champions League’s Last-16.

Neymar/Mbappe concerns

And the task ahead of the Ligue 1 table-toppers next week looks set to be made considerably tougher by developments in a pair of tonight’s international friendly fixtures.

The clashes in question are Brazil vs Cameroon, and France’s matchup with Uruguay.

All of PSG’s first-choice front-3, in the form of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, featured tonight across these two fixtures.

However, only Cavani has made it out unscathed (thus far).

Neymar lasted just 8 minutes of Brazil’s 1-0 victory over Cameroon, before being forced off with a thigh problem:

Even more worrying for all involved with PSG, though, was the nasty-looking shoulder injury picked up by Kylian Mbappe:

Fans of the Parisian outfit now face an anxious wait for updates on the well-being of their two star men, with both players immediately appearing to be in doubt to be fit for their club’s crunch showdown with Liverpool next Wednesday night.
