Bad news for the fans of Paris Saint-Germain: A use of superstar Kylian Mbappe in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League is questionable.
Attacker Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain threatens to fail in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City (Tuesday 9 p.m. in LIVETICKER). As the French series champion announced on Friday, the superstar is suffering from an injury to his right calf. The club did not provide any information about the severity and associated downtime.
“He has problems with his right calf. We hope it is not too bad and that he can return quickly,” said coach Mauricio Pochettino at the press conference on Friday. PSG had given up the first leg last Wednesday after a long lead. In the end, thanks to the goals of Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, the Citizens won 2-1 in Prinzenpark and thus created a good starting position for the second clash.
Before it comes to the second leg hit on Tuesday, Paris has to play against Lens in the league (Saturday 5 p.m. in the LIVETICKER). Four game days before the end, the long-time dominator of recent years is second with 72 points. The gap to leaders Lille is only one point, but with AS Monaco (71 points) another club still has promising chances for the championship title.
