Kylian Mbappe doubtful for first-leg game against Bayern Munich
The worst possible news about Kylian Mbappe's injury has now been confirmed. PSG visited Montpellier (1-3 victory) on Wednesday and Mbappe was forced to leave the pitch after 20 minutes having suffered a knock.
It's a hamstring injury and Mbappe might miss the game against Bayern Munich on Feb.14 in the Round of 16 of the Champions League.
The France international and PSG forward left the pitch after not being able to sprint for a few minutes having received a hit close to his left knee minutes before. Mbappe had already missed two penalties in the first minutes of the game before sustaining the injury.
After undergoing some medical examinations on Thursday morning, Le Parisien is reporting the potential absence of Mbappe for the clash against Bayern Munich and the three games before that one on the schedule of PSG.
Kylian Mbappe has been given a three-week timetable, risks missing game against Bayern Munich
Mbappe is expected to remain on the shelves for at least three weeks having suffered a hamstring injury.
This news means that Mbappe will miss the games against Toulouse next Saturday (Ligue 1), the French Cup clash at Olympique Marseille, and a second league game on Feb. 11 at Monaco.
Further examinations will be made as time progresses in order to re-evaluate the player and his recovery process so he can come back to the pitch to help PSG as soon as possible through the pivotal month of February.
Sergio Ramos, who also left the pitch injured on Wednesday, is still waiting for a verdict on the impact of the injury (adductor) he suffered and how many games (if any) he will miss.
He clearly suffered a concussion prior to that, though, which might be a bigger reason for concern than any muscular problem, whether Ramos and Christophe Galtier want to accept it or not.
