Obviously hit in the left thigh, Neymar came out during the second half of the Coupe de France match between PSG and Caen. The Brazilian number 10 went straight to the locker room, without even waiting to be replaced.
Is Neymar injured? This is the big question that arises Wednesday night after the exit of the Brazilian, shortly before the hour mark in the 32nd final of the Coupe de France of Paris Saint-Germain against Stade Malberde Caen. Victim of a blow to the left thigh, carried by Steeve Yago, the number 10 did not even wait to be formally replaced to leave the lawn and go directly to the locker room, head down.
When he found himself on the ground in his contact with the Caennais, Neymar had clearly expressed his pain. However, he was able to get up and exchange a few words with his opponent. He then briefly resumed play.
The shock against Barça in six days
But in the 58th minute, while Kylian Mbappé was preparing to enter the game, Neymar therefore abandoned his partners and his captain’s armband which he wore for the first time from the kick-off. Mauricio Pochettino comforted him briefly, before seeing him go straight into the tunnel of the Ornano stadium.
The concern is obviously strong, less than a week before the shock against Barça in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League. The game is scheduled for Tuesday, February 16 at Camp Nou, at 9 p.m. (live on RMC Sport 1).

His package was confirmed before the trip to Caen.
