There's plenty of panic for Paris Saint-Germain fans right now surrounding the status of striker Kylian Mbappe. The standout unfortunately suffered a left-foot injury during training.
Now, with the Champions League second leg against Real Madrid coming on Wednesday, there's concern that Mbappe may not be able to suit up. If he does miss the match, it'd no doubt be a monster hit for the team.
"Kylian Mbappe took a blow to his left foot in training today," PSG said in an official statement. "He underwent treatment this afternoon. Clinical exams are reassuring, and a new update will be made in 24 hours."
Come Tuesday, we should find out if Mbappe will be cleared to go or not. At this point, things are up in the air and it wouldn't be a surprise if he's on the bench to start the match.
If there's any risk of Mbappe suffering a long-term injury by being rushed back, it would be a terrible look for PSG and their training staff. Having said that, the good news is that his foot injury doesn't look to be serious at this point.
Mbappe was the hero for PSG in the first leg of the Round of 16 showdown with Madrid, as he scored a sensational goal late to give PSG the win. Now, things are headed to Spain for the second leg. This one really could go either way.
Should Mbappe start, PSG supporters will be relieved and be more confident in the team's chances of coming out on top and moving on to the quarterfinals. We'll find out soon enough what his medical status will be.
