Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain’s match against Lille in the French Cup on Wednesday as he continues to recover from a left thigh injury.
PSG said that Neymar is returning to training, but coach Mauricio Pochettino does not want to take risks with the Brazilian striker, who was suspended for more than a month due to injury.
Neymar can return by the end of the week in a decisive match for the championship against the third place of Lyon. In a very close race for the league title, Lille moved three points to the top of the standings last weekend when PSG lost second place at home to Nantes.
PSG will also be without the injured Juan Bernat and Pablo Sarabia for the cup game.
