Neymar suffers ankle injury against Marseille

Paris: Neymar was stretchered off 10 minutes from time against Marseille on Sunday leading to speculations that the Brazilian may miss his team's do-or-die Champions League clash against Real Madrid on March 6 after suffering an ankle injury.

But PSG coach coach Unai Emery was optimistic that the world's most expensive footballer will be fit.

"The first examination in the locker room revealed that it was a twist to the ankle. Now we will do a medical examination to find out what this twist is," said Emery, whose team need to overturn a 3-1 deficit.

Neymar was on his own when he innocuously rolled his ankle and flopped to the ground in pain.

"We will wait for the examination and remain optimistic. If I had to say today (whether or not he will face Real) I would rather say yes to being optimistic," said Emery.
