PSG's Nenê sidelined with broken cheekbone

Paris Saint-Germain FC will face GNK Dinamo Zagreb without Nenê on Wednesday as the Brazilian winger is facing up to six weeks out with a broken cheekbone.

Paris Saint-Germain FC will be without winger Nenê for up to six weeks after the Brazilian suffered a broken cheekbone in his side's 1-0 win against Stade de Reims Champagne on Saturday.

The 31-year-old suffered the injury during a collision in the first half, and the club have announced that last season's joint top scorer in Ligue 1 will be sidelined for between three and six weeks. That means Nenê will miss Wednesday's UEFA Champions League trip to GNK Dinamo Zagreb and is also likely to sit out Dinamo's visit to France on 6 November, plus PSG's away meeting with FC Dynamo Kyiv on 21 November.

The French club currently sit second in Group A behind leaders FC Porto after suffering defeat in Portugal on matchday two.
