Thomas Tuchel was extremely careful with Neymar in this Friday’s game against Monaco for Ligue 1. The PSG he suffered a tough 3-2 defeat at Louis II, and the Brazilian only had about 30 minutes to play. The attacker returned to the field after his injury, and hopes to be at his best for next week, when they face the Leipzig by Champions.
Neymar back to action
Thomas Tuchel’s idea with Neymar it was for the player to watch a few minutes of play and get into competition rhythm. The carioca has been out of the courts since last October 28, when he suffered a problem in the adductors, also being marginalized from the FIFA date. Now it seems that the footballer is fit to play.
«Neymar it is already decided. He will start against him Leipzig«, Were the words of the DT of PSG after the defeat against Monaco this Friday in the principality. While the club enjoys some comfort in qualifying for Ligue 1, it is clear that the situation in the group stage of the Champions is different. Parisians can’t keep anything to themselves.

Currently, the club occupies the third position in the Group H table. With 3 rounds left to play, the first place is held by Manchester United and the second by the Teutons.
The key game will be next Tuesday, November 24. PSG Y Leipzig They will meet face to face at Parc des Princes for matchday 4 of the group stage of the Champions League. Tuchel cannot settle for anything other than a victory at home, as any other result could condemn them for qualification to the round of 16.
