Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is set to miss the Champions League clash with Real Madrid after suffering an ankle injury against Marseille, Sky Sports News understands.

Neymar was carried off on a stretcher during the 3-0 win on Sunday after rolling his ankle following a challenge from Bouna Sarr.

Sky Sports News understands the Brazilian initially feared that his season was over after suspecting he had suffered a broken ankle in the tackle.

However, the injury is not as bad as first feared and Neymar is expected to miss only the next three weeks of action after undergoing a scan on Sunday.
