Kylian Mbappé has been declared fit to make PSG’s Champions League trip to Germany to face RB Leipzig.
The 22-year-old striker who missed PSG’s last game in the Ligue One against Lille on Friday, due to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) infection, participated in the team’s collective training session on Sunday. Barring a last-minute injury, his presence for the trip to Germany is no longer in doubt for the medical staff.
On the other hand, Leo Messi remains uncertain. The Six times ballon d’Or winner is increasing the care to get rid of his muscle discomfort. The former FC Barcelona player was replaced by Mauro Icardi at half-time against Lille on Friday.
“If Messi is injured? No I don’t think so, Pochettino replied on Canal plus after the match against Lille. We saw the doctor, as a precaution. I hope he will be available for the next match against Leipzig.”
After a final session at Camp des Loges this Monday morning, the Parisians will fly to Leipzig tomorrow. Mauricio Pochettino’s side lead their group, one point ahead of second-placed Manchester City. They won against the Germans (3-2) two weeks ago at the Parc des Princes thanks to a brace from Lionel Messi and a goal from Kylian Mbappé, who missed a penalty late in the match.
