PSG have suffered a major blow in the form of an injury to their star French striker Kylian Mbappe, which ruled him out for 3 weeks on Thursday, February 2. The injury occurred in the match, which the club won 3–1 on Wednesday, 1 February. Mbappe will miss the Champions League tie with Bayern Münche as well as the French Cup last-16 match against Olympique de Marseille. It should not be forgotten that PSG will play 5 matches between February 4 and February 19 and Mbappe will be absent in all these matches. “Following tests, Kylian Mbappe has suffered a left thigh injury at the level of the femoral biceps,” PSG said in a club statement.

PSG defender Sergio Ramos is also injured but has not yet been ruled out. The club said further tests would take place on Thursday before a final decision on Ramos’ fitness could be made.

PSG were awarded a penalty via video replays in the seventh minute when central defender Christopher Julian was adjudged to have pulled down Sergio Ramos. Goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte saved Mbappe’s first attempt and made an excellent save to push Mbappe’s effort onto the right post, after the referee ordered it to be taken again.

Mbappe somehow missed an open goal when the rebound fell to him and he fired the ball over the crossbar.

The World Cup star went off midway through the first half moments after catching his right leg below the knee following a challenge. TV cameras also showed him rubbing the back of his left thigh as he walked into the dressing room.

Embappé sat down and pointed to his leg after a challenge. He was substituted in the 21st and was able to walk off the field despite staff members offering assistance. Experienced central defender Ramos went off injured after about 30 minutes. PSG will take on Bayern Munich in the first leg of their round-of-16 match in the Champions League in February.
