Paris Saint-Germain have announced that Kylian Mbappé (24) is set to miss three weeks of action, meaning he will miss the club’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, which is just 12 days away.
Mbappe picked up a thigh injury in Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Montpellier. The Frenchman was seen hobbling around in the mixed zone after the game. Following new medical tests, the seriousness of the injury has been established, and it is ultimately an injury that will pay for Mbappé’s participation in the Champions League meeting against Bayern Munich, the first leg of which takes place on February 14. .
If Mbappé misses three weeks of action – as expected – he will also miss the Coupe de France clash against Olympique de Marseille, as well as crucial Ligue 1 fixtures against AS Monaco and Lille OSC. PSG will face Marseille in the league again on February 26, although by then the Monaco academy graduate may have made a comeback.
