PARIS: Neymar will miss Paris St Germain's Ligue 1 game at Nantes on Tuesday (Feb 4) with a rib injury he picked up in the first half of the 5-0 win over Montpellier on Saturday.

The runaway league leaders said on their website that although the Brazilian finished the match, the injury was confirmed by tests conducted on Monday.

Neymar needed treatment after tangling with Arnaud Souquet near the end of the first period and angrily complained to the fourth official in the tunnel at halftime.

PSG are 12 points clear of Olympique de Marseille with 55 points from 22 games as they bid to retain their title.
