Neymar out for four weeks as PSG superstar has MRI on hamstring injury picked up with Brazil

And PSG are expecting to be without the crocked ace for both Champions League clashes against Club Brugge.

A club statement read: "Neymar underwent an MRI (scan) this afternoon… a medical check up will be done in eight days but his return to competition is expected in four weeks depending on the evolution (of the injury)."

Neymar was replaced by Philippe Coutinho, having made only five appearances this season due to a spate of knocks.

The South American had already missed four games for PSG this term, on the back of being absent for 48 matches in the past two seasons alone.

In a short clip shared on Twitter, Neymar appears to hold his left hamstring very briefly before hobbling off.

As he is replaced by Bayern Munich ace Coutinho, he then clutches the same part of his leg again.

But the biggest news was the blow to Neymar, in what could be a brand-new injury concern – with the Brazil ace having suffered ankle and foot injuries in recent months.

Neymar has bounced back from his rocky summer, scoring four goals in just five Ligue 1 games for PSG.

The former Barcelona star publicly stated his desire to go "home" to the Nou Camp – with PSG fans left fuming.

He said: “I’m very happy to be able to help PSG. It’s better with the fans.
