He returned to partial training with Mauricio Pochettino’s squad last week and hopes had been raised that the 29-year-old could feature from the bench in the second part of the last-16 tie on Wednesday at the Parc des Princes.

‘Neymar Jr resumed partial training with the squad last week and will continue his individual recovery work,’ a club statement read.
‘A new point (update) will be made in the coming days.’
