Champions League: Kylian Mbappé will probably miss Paris Saint

Paris Saint-Germain will most likely have to do without top star Kylian Mbappé in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern Munich (February 14).

As the club announced on Thursday, the attacker sustained a left thigh injury in Wednesday's 3-1 win at HSC Montpellier.

The downtime is estimated at three weeks.

Mbappé will also miss PSG in the round of 16 of the French Cup next Wednesday at Olympique Marseille.

However, the world champion should be available again for the second leg against Munich on March 8th.

The injury came at the end of a messed-up game for the superstar, in which he was rarely weak at the end.

Mbappé took the penalty in the tenth minute but missed the first try.

The Frenchman was then allowed to play again because Montpellier keeper Benjamin Lecomte had stood a step too far in front of his goal.

Mbappé also missed the second attempt as well as the margin.

Ten minutes later he had to go out and grabbed his thigh.

"No reason to worry.

It's a bruise or a hematoma.

We don't know for sure yet.

In one of the duels, Kylian received a hit behind the knee and on the muscle," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier after the game.

Now Mbappé is probably more seriously injured than expected.
