PSG suddenly failed 0-1 against Lyon right at home at the 14th round of Ligue 1. This was the fourth defeat of the champions in this season. Not only that, Tuchel coach also had to receive more information when Neymar sticked a very heavy injury in this match.

The situation happened in the minutes of injury time when Neymar made a ball in the efforts to search for a equalizer. Brazilian striker was cut by Thiago Mendes by Lyon with a very dangerous shadow from behind. The referee immediately withdrew the red card directly with the player on the visitors.
Meanwhile, Neymar lies the field and shouted in pain. After being taken care of by PSG doctors on the field, the Brazilian striker had to leave the field with stretcher in tears. Although it was unclear the level of injury, the French communication said that the player was born in 1992 was likely to have broken ankles.
If this bad script occurs, PSG will not have Neymar's service for several months. The Champions League will enter the 1st round in early February next year and Tuchel coach clearly didn't want to lose the No. 1 star in his squad.
