Lasmar told Globo Esporte: “Worrying situation, of course. He did not cite very sharp pain.

“He felt discomfort. A slightly vague complaint. He asked to continue, but soon realized that it was not very normal and asked to leave to have no complication.

“The first evaluation is always for greater care, but you need the image (exam) to understand what happened, if it was just muscle fatigue or if you need more care.”

Neymar was replaced by midfielder Philippe Coutinho after feeling an injury in his left thigh. The match was 0-0 after 30 minutes.
