Kylian Mbappe damage replace for PSG vs Man Metropolis UCL second leg
Prior to the Champions League first leg between PSG and Man City, there were concerns about Kylian Mbappe’s fitness and this could explain why the French star looked a bit subdued as he lacked his usual influence on the game.
The Parisians imploded in the second half of that game and were even lucky enough to have lost just 2-1, but that away goal could be huge if they come to Manchester knowing they have to win at least two goals and get the process .
Having Mbappe fit and at his best will be vital to their chances of success. So there is concern that he was forced to miss the home win against Lens today.
Mauricio Pochettino spoke about his situation after the game and it sounds like Mbappe still has a chance to make the game next week:
