Silva has been withdrawn from the squad to face Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday because of a thigh injury.

Silva picked up in the injury in the 21st minute of last week's first leg, and while he was initially included in the squad despite missing Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Nice, he simply could not recover in time.

Silva scored in the 74th minute of PSG's 3-1 win over Toulouse on Saturday.

Silva's goal came on a header after some jostling in the box and was the final score of the game. It was his first goal of the season, as he's primarily a stay-at-home central defender, leaving David Luiz to sneak up every so often.

Silva was named to the FIFA FIFPro World XI on Monday.

Silva was joined by teammate David Silva as one of the four best defenders in the world. While PSG have struggled a bit this season, Silva is without question one of the best players at his position.

Silva returned from his hamstring injury to secure a clean sheet in PSG's 3-0 win over Bordeaux.

Silva missed over two months due to a hamstring ailment, but played a full 90 minutes in Saturday's league win. The Brazilian is one of the world's best defenders and should immediately bolster a PSG team already tied for the fewest goals allowed (seven) in Ligue 1 this season.

Silva is expected to miss several weeks after suffering a right hamstring tear in a friendly last week, the club's official website reports.

Silva is a much more important real player than fantasy player, but his injury is still a blow to the latter, as PSG have their fair share of clean sheets.

Silva, who scored in the seventh minute of Brazil's 2-1 win over Colombia in the quarterfinals of the World Cup, picked up a yellow card in the 64th minute and he will be ineligible to face Germany in the semifinals.

Silva got the card for running into Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina as he was trying to punt the ball out, a remarkably dumb foul for a player already on one yellow card. Brazil advanced to the semis, but it will have to try to reach the final without one of their starting centerbacks.

Silva scored an own goal during the second-half of PSG's 1-1 draw against Monaco on Sunday.

Silva's goal prevented PSG from securing its third consecutive clean sheet in Ligue 1. Considering the magnitude of Sunday's game, Silva's own goal could have proved disastrous, but his team still walked away with a point from their chief contenders.

Silva found the goal and kept a clean sheet during PSG's 5-0 win versus Nantes on Sunday.

Silva pounced in the 10th minute off a corner-kick to open the scoring for PSG. The Brazilian's last goal also came during his last clean sheet effort, another 5-0 rout that occurred over a month ago against Sochaux.
