While PSG did win the cup tie against Strasbourg in what was a testy affair, they have paid a price it would seem as they are going to be potentially losing Neymar for a considerable length of time.

Early reports have their talisman being out of action for both legs of their UEFA Champions League tie against Manchester United. Punters reacted to the Neymar injury by backing Manchester United to win the first leg of that tie which is at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been cut into 15/8 odds to win the fixture*(betting odds taken from bet365 on January 24, 2019, at 9:28 p.m.). It does still leave them as the underdogs with PSG at 13/10 odds to open up the advantage in the tie*(betting odds taken from bet365 on January 24, 2019, at 9:28 p.m.).

That first leg is coming up on February 12 from Old Trafford.

Last season Neymar picked up pretty much the exact same injury which caused him to miss a total of 15 games at the end of the PSG’s season. PSG are currently top of Ligue 1 holding a massive 13 point advantage over second-placed Lille. PSG do have two games in hand over their nearest challengers as well.
