Brazil forward Neymar has suffered a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle, Paris St Germain have announced.

The Ligue 1 leaders did not say how long the 26-year-old would be sidelined for but he is now a major doubt for the second leg of his side's Champions League round-of-16 tie with Real Madrid on March 6 where PSG will attempt to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit against the Champions League holders.

Neymar, who joined PSG for a world-record transfer fee last year, left the field in tears on a stretcher during Sunday night's Ligue 1 win over rivals Marseille.
