Neymar recovering from calf injury as PSG's Bernat undergoes surgery

Neymar is recovering from a calf injury and will be reassessed on Thursday, while Paris Saint-Germain announced Juan Bernat underwent knee surgery.

PSG star Neymar sustained a calf injury during Sunday's 2-0 win over Reims in Ligue 1 as Thomas Tuchel's side claimed their third consecutive victory to sit seventh in the table after five matches.

French champions PSG provided an update on Neymar ahead of Friday's fixture against Angers in the capital.

"After feeling some tightness in his calf during Sunday's match, he has received reassuring test results," PSG said on Tuesday.

"His condition will be reviewed again in the next 48 hours."

Neymar has only made two appearances in 2020-21, and the Brazilian forward is yet to score for last season's Champions League runners-up.

PSG full-back Bernat, meanwhile, had an operation to repair his ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

Bernat suffered an ACL injury in the 1-0 win over Metz earlier this month, and the ex-Bayern Munich defender is set to miss the majority of the season.

PSG confirmed Bernat's surgery at Pitie Salpetriere Hospital was a success.
