Champions League: Neymar preparing for comeback to face Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr. is on the road to recovery, and he has set his sights on a big comeback appearance when the club faces Real Madrid CF in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

The fixture is the most highly-anticipated clash in the first round of the knockout stage, and Neymar is determined to be back to full fitness before the Spanish giants visit the Parc des Princes in Paris on a month from now on February 15.

The Brazilian has been out with an ankle injury after sustaining damage on his ligaments in a Ligue 1 clash against Saint-Etienne way back on November 28. He has since been trying his best to recover quickly, with a rehabilitation program closely monitored by the club’s medical team.

He also spent an extended holiday break with his family back in Brazil, but Marca reports that his delayed return to Paris was sanctioned by the club and he continued with his rehab even in his home country.
