Bad News For PSG As Mbappe Is Injured Just 3 Days Before They Face Man City In UCL Semi
Paris St-Germain beat Metz 2-0 to move two points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappe scored twice before leaving with a thigh injury.
The 22-year-old opened the scoring in the fourth minute and added a second with a deflected strike after Fabien Centonze leveled with a header. Mbappe was injured late in the game and was replaced by Mauro Icardi, who scored a penalty.
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, is optimistic that Mbappe will be fit to face Manchester City in the Champions League this week.
On Wednesday, the two teams will clash in the first leg of their semi-final in Paris (20:00 BST). Pochettino said, “We hope it’s not too serious.”
