Neymar ruled out of Paris Saint-Germain's second leg with Barcelona

Neymar Jr warms up during a Paris Saint-Germain training session at Ooredoo center during on March 01, 2021 in Paris, France.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar will play no part in Wednesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against former club Barcelona.

The 29-year-old missed last month's reverse fixture at Camp Nou, which finished 4-1 in PSG's favour.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick and Moise Kean was also on target to put the French side in complete control.

Neymar has been nursing an adductor injury since early February and, despite returning to training, will not be considered for selection against Barca.

A team news update from PSG on Tuesday read: "Neymar resumed partial training with the squad last week and will continue his individual recovery work."

Brazil international Neymar became the world's most expensive player in 2017 when joining PSG from Barca, where he had won eight major honours in four seasons.
