Paris St Germain's Neymar not having surgery, could face Real

Paris St Germain manager Unai Emery has dismissed reports that forward Neymar will undergo surgery for a fractured metatarsal and said the Brazilian could play against Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.

Neymar suffered a broken foot and sprained ankle during Sunday's 3-1 Ligue 1 win over their arch-rivals Olympique de Marseille and was in tears as he was carried off at the Parc de Princes.

Media reports said the world's most expensive player would undergo surgery and be out for two months, returning to action a month before this year's World Cup in Russia.

PSG trail Real Madrid 3-1 ahead of the last 16 second-leg game in Paris on March 6.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists for PSG this season.
