Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery insists that no decision has been made over whether Neymar will have a foot operation amid reports that the Brazil worldwide could miss three months.

PSG said that scans had confirmed the Brazilian had suffered "a right ankle sprain" and an "associated fracture of the fifth metatarsal" in a statement on Tuesday.

PSG broke soccer's transfer record past year by paying Barcelona 222 million euros ($260 million) to buy Neymar.

Madrid hold a 3-1 lead heading into the second leg of the last-16 tie at the Parc des Princes.

The Brazilian forward has been prolific in this first season at the club and has racked up 29 goals in as many games in all competitions while also contributing with 17 assists.

Neymar Jr was injured during Sunday's Ligue 1 encounter with Marseille, which the Paris outfit won comfortably with goals from Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe. PSG spent big on Neymar in part because of its Champions League failures: It hasn't advanced past the quarterfinals in each of the past five seasons.

Firefighters and Pike County officials responded before calling in members of the Clark County water-rescue team around 8:30 p.m. According to a city press release, more than three inches of rain are expected over the weekend.

Neymar will certainly miss the second leg of their clash with Real Madrid in which they need to recover a 3-1 deficit. After speaking with the club doctor, Emery said Neymar has a "small crack in the fifth metatarsal".

Real coach Zinedine Zidane is taking no pleasure from the news of Neymar's injury. "Neymar wants to play every game - he's focused on Real".

Just previous year, Neymar's global team-mate Gabriel Jesus was out of action for two months after breaking a metatarsal playing for Manchester City. We are going to wait.

Liverpool star Gerrard suffered an identical injury to his left foot in his side's Premier League defeat at Manchester United in September 2004 and although expected to be out for up to eight weeks, his return to fitness took longer.

"Neymar? Me, I saw only one thing is that I played the ball", Sarr said.
