BARCELONA, August 9- Brazil captain Neymar will miss Tuesday’s European Super Cup in Tbilisi, Georgia, after contracting the mumps, Barcelona said Sunday.

The 23-year-old has previously been vaccinated against the viral disease more common in children, against which most people in the developed world are immunised when young.

“Neymar will be out for two weeks after being diagnosed with parotitis (mumps), despite the fact that he had previously been vaccinated against the disease,” said Barca in a statement on their website.

As well as Tuesday’s match against Sevilla, Neymar will also miss the two-legged Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Bilbao on August 14 and 17.
