Neymar misses PSG's game at Amiens ahead of Champions League

PSG’s Neymar a Champions League doubt for Dortmund last 16 trip

Neymar could make his return from injury in his side's Champions League tie against Dortmund next week.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel had previously said he couldn't 100% guarantee that the Brazilian would be fit to play in midweek.

Ahead of the Dortmund clash, the club will take on Amiens SC in Ligue 1 on February 15. "We can't risk his fitness", Goal.com quoted Tuchel as saying. Jadon is a player that I really like to watch play and he is a great player with plenty of quality. We have a responsibility.

Dortmund will demand at least £100m for Sancho, although at this stage no club is favourite to sign him, with Sancho wanting to play in the Champions League, and could yet decide to stay at his current club. "It is a medical decision as the risk is too big".

Neymar was joined on the list of non-travellers for the Dijon game by Marquinhos, who is recovering well from a calf injury, along with Idrissa Gueye, Presnel Kimpembe and Marco Verratti.

The Brazil striker was checked by coach Thomas Tuchel in training after Tuesday's media conference, when it was made clear PSG would take no risks with the former Barcelona player.

The most damning of failures for Fernandez, however, was the manner in which his old club were dumped out of the Champions League by Manchester United, with a double from Romelu Lukaku and another late penalty, scored by Marcus Rashford, overturning PSG's first-leg victory.
