Neymar Injury Boosts Real Madrid`s Chances
Next week, Real Madrid take a healthy 3-1 lead to the Parc des Prince when they play Paris Saint-Germain in the second-leg of their Champions League last-16 knockout tie.
However, Real Madrid`s chances of going through have improved dramatically after it was revealed that Paris Saint-Germain`s star striker, Neymar, is set to miss the second-leg.
Neymar, who has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu in some wild transfer speculation, picked up an injury on Sunday as his club beat Marseille, 1-0, in a Ligue 1 fixture.
Unfortunately, the most expensive footballer in the world, transfer-fee wise, has been diagnosed with a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle after being carried off the pitch, in tears, on a stretcher from the pitch.

Why? Well, since moving to Paris Saint-Germain, from Barcelona, Neymar has scored 29 goals in 30 games and would have been a threat to Real Madrid`s chances of progressing to the quarter-final stages of the 2017 / 2018 Champions League.
