PSG and life without Neymar
The Brazilian star suffers a ligament injury to his ankle, which he has been dragging on since the World Cup in Qatar.
He will be absent against Nantes and will also miss the rematch against Bayern for the Champions League.
DT Galtier regretted his loss but it served him to tactically balance his team with more players in midfield and freeing Mbappé and Messi in attack.
Neymar was injured on February 19.
