Two missed shots and an untimely injury: Kylian Mbappé and Paris St. Germain had a memorable evening less than two weeks before the duel with Bayern Munich.
The French football champions won 3-1 (0-0) on Wednesday after poor performances at HSC Montpellier, who are in danger of being relegated.
Superstar Mbappé's injury may weigh heavily.
The attacker had to be replaced after 20 minutes, Mbappe kept holding the back of his left thigh.
On February 14, PSG welcomes Bayern to the round of 16 first leg in the Champions League, the second leg in Munich is on March 8.
At the time of his substitution, Mbappé had shown unusual weaknesses in the end in a curious way.
Montpellier's goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte initially saved a penalty kick from the vice world champion, which had to be repeated.
Lecomte also fended off Mbappé's second attempt, and Mbappé then put the margin over the goal (10th minute).
Shortly after the replacement of the top star, the game was over for Sergio Ramos (31st), the Spaniard had to leave the field with a suspected concussion.
Fabian (55th), world champion Lionel Messi (72nd) and Warren Zaire-Emery (90th + 2) scored for PSG, Arnaud Nordin (89th) shortened in the final phase.
