Kylian Mbappe is one of the best players in the world, so any chance PSG won’t have him for the Champions League quarterfinal with Atalanta is a serious blow.

Mbappe was clattered into by Loic Perrin, the Saint-Etienne sent off in Saturday’s 1-0 French Cup Final win over Saint-Etienne.

PSG issued an update on the French striker’s ankle injury after Mbappe appeared emotional while requiring plenty of help to get off the field.

From en.psg.fr:

Serious right ankle sprain to the external lateral compartment. To be re-evalued in 72 hours with clinical and ankle imaging analysis.

Mbappe has 30 goals and 18 assists in 34 matches this season, including a robust five and five in seven Champions League matches.

With the UCL quarterfinals being one-offs and not two legs, Atalanta will feel even more hopeful of overcoming PSG if the megastar striker cannot play.
