Tuchel now certain Neymar will be fit to face Dortmund

PSG’s Neymar a Champions League doubt for Dortmund last 16 trip

PSG’s Neymar a Champions League doubt for Dortmund last 16 trip

With PSG playing at German side Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the first leg of their last-16 game, the injury-prone Neymar has again been left out by coach Thomas Tuchel even though he has been training with the squad.

The Brazilian hurt his ribs during PSG's 5-0 win over Montpellier on February 1 and, although the injury didn't seem serious, he's missed the last three games against Nantes, Lyon and Dijon. "We will see whether the trauma from that match can be overcome against Dortmund. We can't risk his fitness", Goal.com quoted Tuchel as saying.

"If it was up to me only, Neymar would always play". We have a responsibility.

Dortmund will demand at least £100m for Sancho, although at this stage no club is favourite to sign him, with Sancho wanting to play in the Champions League, and could yet decide to stay at his current club. "It is a medical decision as the risk is too big".

Toro Rosso completes rebrand to Alpha Tauri with 2020 vehicle
AlphaTauri, which was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Salzburg, is Red Bull's in-house fashion brand. Both drivers claimed the team a podium finish previous year - Kvyat in Germany and Gasly in Brazil.

Neymar's team-mates Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Marco Verratti and Idrissa Gueye also were unavailable for the midweek cup victory and are likely sit out Saturday's league match at Amiens.

"We aren't going to take risks against Amiens, it's clear".

Indeed, PSG were beaten in the Coupe de France final last term, losing out to Rennes on penalties after the teams were locked at 2-2 following extra time - the first time in four years the Ligue 1 champions have failed to lift the cup.
