PSG will probably not have their Dream Team at 100% for the most important match of the season, next February 15 against Real Madrid.
For the moment, Paris SG must do without Lionel Messi, who is taking a little longer than expected to return from his Covid contamination. The Argentine is expected to return soon, however, as he made it clear on social media this week. On the other hand, the concern is greater for Neymar. Affected since the end of November in Saint-Etienne, the Brazilian should be absent 6 to 8 weeks. It will necessarily be the high range, since the former Barcelona player is still training indoors for at least 10 days, and should resume collective training in the last week of January. In the meantime, Neymar is working hard in the gym but also at home, where he adds a session several evenings a week.
Lille-PSG goal for Neymar
Result, if all goes well, he can hope to be part of the PSG group for the match against Nice in the Coupe de France on January 31. But RMC announces it, the real objective, the most reasonable, is a return to competition for February 6 and the shock match against Lille. This will be a very good test against the champion of France, especially since the match against Real Madrid will then arrive very quickly, on February 15. A timing that will at least allow Neymar to have a few minutes in the PSG jersey before the Champions League shock, even if it will be very difficult to imagine a “Ney” at the top of his physical possibilities with so few playing time in almost three months.
