The Brazilian continues recovering from a rib injury and he has six days to be fit for the Champions League fixture.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar admitted that he is looking forward to facing Sancho, regarded as one of the hottest young talents in Europe, when PSG travel to Dortmund on Tuesday.

"Whether or not he plays on Saturday (against Amiens), he will be in Dortmund, I'm sure of it, but without being in the best shape he was in two weeks ago", said the former Dortmund boss. However, it is simply not possible - we must be attentive, and we can not risk the health of any player. "We can't risk his fitness", Goal.com quoted Tuchel as saying.

Neymar has missed three of PSG's four Champions League knockout matches during his time at the club.

Liverpool preparing talks over huge £50m contract for Van Dijk
The 28-year old defender is one of Liverpool's stand out players, vital in the starting XI, a regular in the Liverpool defence. That is why there is no offer that will convince the Reds' board about Van Dijk.

Ahead of the Dortmund clash, the club will take on Amiens SC in Ligue 1 on February 15. "I want him to play all the time, but in the end, we have to make very clear decisions".

Neymar's team-mates Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Marco Verratti and Idrissa Gueye also were unavailable for the midweek cup victory and are likely sit out Saturday's league match at Amiens. "We will have a strong team, but if we have little doubts, we won't take risks", Tuchel said.

The French side are set to face Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League next week, and have been keeping their Brazilian star rested in a bid to help speed up his recovery from injury.
