Kylian Mbappé (25) was only fit enough to feature on the bench during PSG’s 3-1 victory against Lille on Saturday evening, with the forward an unused substitute in the Ligue 1 match against Les Dogues. A much-rotated Les Parisiens were able to get the job done despite the absence of their star man in attack. However, this has raised doubts over the 25-year-old’s availability for PSG’s upcoming Champions League clash against Real Sociedad.
Mbappé to be ready for Sociedad
In the aftermath of PSG’s victory against Lille, Luis Enrique was quizzed on the availability of his attacker for their upcoming Champions League round of 16 tie against Sociedad. In quotes captured by RMC, the PSG manager responded, “Kylian is fine, but we didn’t want to take any risks. If it was a final, he would have played, but he will be 100% ready on Wednesday.”
Mbappé was only available for the bench against Lille due to an ankle injury he suffered after a challenge from Lillian Brassier (24) against Brest. The injury sustained by the France captain led to the Brest defender being the target of racial abuse.
