David Luiz appears likely to sit out Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 clash with Saint-Etienne after missing Friday’s training session.

The Brazil centre-back has missed the last two matches, a 2-0 league win at Bastia and a 0-0 Champions League draw with Real Madrid, because of a knee injury sustained on international duty earlier this month.

Speaking about the injury, Brazil coach Dunga said: “We spoke with him [Luiz] Wednesday and Thursday. Just before our call, he trained.

“He is recovering well and could have even played this week against Real Madrid but PSG wanted to wait a little longer to give him playing time.”

And, after Luiz sat out Friday’s session, PSG seem set to stick with the centre-back pairing of Thiago Silva and Marquinhos as Laurent Blanc’s men aim to preserve their unbeaten record this season.
