Paris Saint-Germain will be without the injured Neymar as they look to continue their unbeaten record in Ligue 1 this season on Wednesday’s trip to Strasbourg. The world’s most expensive player came off early in the second half in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Bordeaux after hurting the same groin he injured playing for Brazil against Cameroon last month.
Neymar had earlier put PSG in front but the reigning champions ended up seeing their perfect domestic record this season come to an end after 14 straight wins. Neymar has scored 15 goals this season and his performance in last week’s Champions League win over Liverpool was one of his best since moving to Paris from Barcelona last year.
Without him Edinson Cavani will hope to return to the starting line-up after being left on the bench in Bordeaux, as PSG seek revenge for a 2-1 defeat at Strasbourg last season.
After Wednesday’s match against a Strasbourg side who ended the weekend in eighth place, PSG will have a free weekend before their crucial Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade.
