Brazil global and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) hitman, Neymar, suffered "a sprain of the right ankle and fissure of the fifth metatarsal", the club said.

Zinedine Zidane expressed hope that Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar returns from his ankle injury in time to face Real Madrid in the Champions League.

However, with the PSG boss watching his star forward being carried off on a stretcher, he had a feeling things could be worse for the Brazilian worldwide.

"There is a small chance Neymar will be able to play against Real Madrid - we have to be patient".

We need to speak with the player, the doctor and the player's entourage. "I watched the game live and I hope Neymar's injury is nothing unsafe", he added. The Brazilian, who signed for PSG in a world-record move from Barcelona previous year, is now a serious injury doubt for the match against Real Madrid.

Before that game, PSG face Marseille once more in Wednesday's Coupe de France quarter-final and Troyes in the league on Saturday, with seemingly little prospect of Neymar being involved.

In a report filed by Globo Esporte suggest that Neymar is expected to remain out of action for four weeks.

"Neymar is not going to be operated on, this information is false", Emery said.

"We'll see the passing of the next few days to make a decision".

Neymar has played 29 games for the French club so far this season, scoring 29 goals and assisting a further 16 strikes.

"Neymar is doing this and his aim, no doubt, was Champions League because PSG didn't have the opportunity to win it yet".

Brazil fans will also be keeping a close eye on Neymar's fitness, especially after he missed their 2014 World Cup thrashing by Germany with injury.

Emery acknowledged that tests since Neymar was injured in the Ligue 1 win over Marseille have reduced his chances of featuring against Real, but he said there is still hope.
