Kylian Mbappe is one of the best players in the world, so any chance PSG won’t have him for the Champions League quarterfinal with Atalanta is a serious blow.

Mbappe was clattered into by Loic Perrin, the Saint-Etienne sent off in Saturday’s 1-0 French Cup Final win over Saint-Etienne.

PSG issued an update on the French striker’s ankle injury after Mbappe appeared emotional while requiring plenty of help to get off the field.


Serious right ankle sprain to the external lateral compartment. To be re-evalued in 72 hours with clinical and ankle imaging analysis.

Mbappe has 30 goals and 18 assists in 34 matches this season, including a robust five and five in seven Champions League matches.

With the UCL quarterfinals being one-offs and not two legs, Atalanta will feel even more hopeful of overcoming PSG if the megastar striker cannot play.
