Kylian Mbappe to miss Bayern Munich clash

Share this story

PSG star man Kylian Mbappe has been ruled out of the Champions League first-leg clash against Bayern Munich due to injury.

Before getting injured in the Ligue 1 clash against Montpelier on Wednesday night, Mbappe lost a penalty and a sitter.

After the match, Christophe Galtier stated that his injury is not expected to be a long layoff for the world cup winner.

He will be out of action for three weeks from the latest update. This was confirmed after the France international went through medical tests on Thursday.

The PSG player who picked up a thigh injury in his side’s win over Montpellier is almost certainly out of the Champions League round of 16 match against the Bavarians.

In a statement released early Thursday afternoon, PSG said Mbappe suffered an injury to his left thigh at the level of the biceps femoris following examinations.

“He is expected to be unavailable for three weeks,” they said.

Lecomte saved Mbappe’s penalty. After it had to be retaken, Mbappe sent the ball against the post.

He could only play for 20 minutes due to a hard tackle from Leo Leroy and could not continue. Hugo Ekitike came on in his place.

With this update, Mbappe is expected to miss at least four games as the season enters its decisive phase.

Thus, he won’t be available for selection for the game against Toulouse this Saturday; the Coupe de France match against Marseille next Wednesday. Others are against the Monaco game on February 11 and the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern, which will be played on February 14 at the Parc des Princes.

In a related development, the Ligue 1 leaders could also be without Sergio Ramos, who withdrew from the match against Montpellier with physical problems.

The Spaniard will undergo further tests to determine the exact extent of his injury.
