Kylian Mbappe raises doubts in the Champions League PSG semi-final second leg with Man City after a right calf injury.
How serious is Kylian Mbappe’s injury?
Paris Saint-Germain confirmed the news in an injury update ahead of their Ligue 1 meeting with Lens on Saturday, but did not reveal how long Kylian would be. They’ll be sweating about Kylian’s fitness ahead of Tuesday as they travel to Manchester to lift a 2-1 deficit from the first leg. Paris Saint-Germain hasn’t given any indication of how serious Kylian’s injury is, however, he is pretty sure he will miss Saturday’s match with Lens as the reigning French champions face a real fight to hold onto their Ligue 1 crown. The top three in Ligue 1 are separated by just two points with four away games from leaders Lille 73, followed by Paris Saint-Germain at 72 and Monaco at 71. Likewise, worries are whether Kylian is up to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday as Paris Saint-Germain chases his first Champions League crown after falling on the final hurdle against Bayern Munich last season.
Pochettino’s opinion about Kylian’s injury
In his Friday press conference, Mauricio Pochettino said about Kylian’s injury that he has discomfort in his right calf and they hope it is not serious and that he can return soon. He is an important player for us. He said they talked about it with the medical staff, the performance sector and them and he saw him almost fly against Metz, he was so good. He did not play against the Angers before this match, but he got hit that could happen at any time during the match against Manchester City. he also said that it could happen. This is not a major problem, but it created muscle imbalances in the calf. they had Kylian Mbappe at his best, physically.
