The way he followed while leaving the ground against Lyon by getting injured, it seemed that he will miss the ground for the next few months. So, the next February at the Nou Camp or on the 10th March at the Parc des Princes, PSG will not get Neymar against Barcelona.

The match between Paris SG and Barcelona will always be so exciting no doubt. In the 2016/17 Champions League round of the last sixteen, they faced each other for the last time. The football world has seen an amazing story back then which was nearly an impossible story.
In the first leg, at the PSG’s venue, the local team beat Barcelona by a 4 – 0 goal but at the Camp Nou, Barcelona beat them by a 6 – 1 goal and moved to the quarter-final. In that match, Neymar presented an amazing leadership quality. The match which took place in the year 2017 changed the football world completely.
Before that PSG spent huge money but failed to take the European throne. But on the European stage, a big star can make the difference and after witnessing them against Barcelona at Camp Nou, they were ready to spend the big amount.
So, they have spent the record amount to buy the Brazilian forward Neymar and finally got him. Besides, from the French club Monaco, they have bought Kylian Mbappe in the same season. As a result, the French giants Paris SG has become a big team now. The team which the football world saw in 2016/17 was not the current PSG. They are totally different.
