Ahead of the return of the Champions League, PSG have suffered a huge blow as Neymar is out for an undefined period.

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed Neymar, Leandro Paredes, and Sergio Ramos remain unavailable.

After a 2-0 win over Angers last week, PSG return to Champions League action. The Parisians face RB Leipzig at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday in a Group A clash but will be without key men.

Neymar, who also missed the Angers match, is the most notable name on the list. The Brazilian got injured during the international break and has spent the last few days sidelined.

“Neymar Jr had some pain in his groin since returning from international duty and will undergo more treatment over the next few days before returning to full training,” read a club statement.

Paredes, on the other hand, suffered a thigh injury in Argentina’s 1-0 win over Peru. PSG don’t expect the midfielder to return until after the next international break in November.

As for Ramos, the former Real Madrid skipper is doing individual training as he steps up his recovery from a calf problem. He is yet to make his Parisians debut since arriving for free in the summer.
