bruise or hematoma

Coach Christophe Galtier does not expect a long break. “No need to worry. It’s a bruise or a hematoma. We don’t know for sure yet. In one of the duels, Kylian received a hit behind the knee and on the muscle.”he said after the 3-1 win of PSG.

Just like with Sergio Ramos, you don’t want to take any risks with the number of games, the PSG coach explained. The Spanish ex-world champion Ramos had also left the field early due to adductor problems. However, the videos show how Mbappé limps into the cabin and says to a supervisor: “I’m in too much pain.” Paris meets FC Bayern in the first leg of the round of 16 on February 14.

Mbappé misses twice from the point

It was a used day for Mbappé on Wednesday anyway. In the early stages, the star striker twice missed a penalty that was repeated. On the second try, he also put the margin over the goal. In the lost World Cup final against Argentina, Mbappé had scored three more times from the point. In the end, goals from Fabian, World Champion Lionel Messi and Warren Zaire-Emery secured PSG victory.
