Mbappe doubtful for Man City clash

Share

Paris St-Germain (PSG) are awaiting to see if Kylian Mbappe will be fit to face the highly confident Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final this evening.

The speedy forward missed out Saturday’s victory over Lens with a calf injury.

However, the striker has travelled with the team to face the English Premier League log leaders.

PSG are trailing 2-1 from the first leg.

The club’s boss Mauricio Pochettino says the 22-year-old goal poacher will be monitored before a decision is made on his availability.

“We need to assess Kylian,” said Pochettino.

The French international started with an individual training session yesterday.

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.

The game is scheduled for 21:00 at the Etihad Stadium.
