Kylian Mbappe is expected to be ready for Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid after picking up an injury in training.
PSG confirms that Sergio Ramos is out vs Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old fired PSG to a late 1-0 win in the first leg of the round of 16 ties at Parc des Princes to give the Ligue 1 leaders a narrow lead to take to Santiago Bernabeu.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were left concerned that they would have to finish the job without Mbappe if he fails to shake off a fresh knock, but the club is hopeful that he’ll be healthy enough to play.
Mbappe sustained an injury during a PSG training session on Monday morning and will now undergo medical exams to assess the damage.
Depending on the severity of the issue, the Frenchman could miss the club’s midweek trip to Madrid to focus on his recovery.
However, initial medical examinations have not revealed a fracture.
PSG confirmed Mbappe’s injury on Monday, saying that he will be further assessed on Tuesday.
“Kylian Mbappe received a shock on his left foot during training today,” the club said. “He was treated this afternoon.
“The clinical examination is reassuring and a new assessment will be made in 24 hours.”
