Neymar took a step forward on the way back to the team after recovering from injury. The PSG forward has returned to personal practice as part of a full recovery. Mauricio Pachettino, the team’s coach, said he was recovering faster than expected.

The 29-year-old Neymar started personal practice last Thursday. Pachettino told a news conference on Friday, the day before the Dijon match, that the team was happy with his recovery.
“He is following the rules given by the physician and the performance department.”

PSG will play against Barcelona at home on March 10. For now, however, Pachettino’s team is facing the challenge of winning the match against Dijon.
Apart from Neymar, Pachelino will miss Anhel Di Maria, Leandro Pardes, Alessandro Florence, Marco Verratti and Mauro Icardi due to injuries against the bottom of the points table in the League One.
