Champions League: PSG Await To See Mbappe Fitness To Face Man City In Semis Second Leg
Paris St-Germain face an anxious wait to see if Kylian Mbappe will be fit to face Manchester City in Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg.
The striker, 22, missed Saturday’s win over Lens with a calf injury.
Boss Mauricio Pochettino says his top scorer will be monitored in training before a decision is made on his availability for the tie in Manchester.
“We need to assess Kylian,” said the Argentine, whose side trail 2-1 from the first leg.
“Today he is going to start an individual training session and see if he can be with the team. There is still one day and we will see and decide if he is going to be available.”
Mbappe has scored 37 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions this season, including eight in 10 Champions League matches.
PSG are looking to reach the final of the Champions League for the second year running, having lost to Bayern Munich in Lisbon last season.
