While signs are positive for his availability for a potentially make-or-break Champions League match against Liverpool next week, the source said that he is likely to miss PSG's match against Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Brazil went on to win the match with Neymar's replacement Richarlison scoring the only goal a minute before half-time.

"These last games were important to recover from the biggest hit that was the World Cup, we remained strong, focused and aiming to be increasingly better".
