Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain's visit to Lyon in Ligue 1 on Sunday due to a thigh injury.

The Brazilian is not included in Unai Emery's squad, with PSG nine points clear of second-place Lyon going into the match.

Neymar hit four goals - his first PSG hat-trick in a glittering individual performance - as Emery's men blitzed Dijon 8-0 on Wednesday.

But the world's most expensive player appeared to be troubled by injury at times during the win and will now miss the Lyon game, with PSG confirming he is not part of the squad to travel to Parc OL.

Neymar was whistled by PSG supporters towards the end of the Dijon thrashing after he insisted on taking a late penalty to score his fourth goal - taking his tally to 15 in the league this season.
