Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe could make an early return from injury to be fit for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, reports BILD.
The French superstar sustained a thigh injury during the Ligue 1 clash against Montpellier, with PSG later confirming that he would remain sidelined for around three weeks.
Mbappe was expected to miss PSG’s toughest game of the season against Bayern in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.
Although the 24-year-old hasn’t resumed training yet, PSG are pushing to get him match-ready for next week’s heavyweight encounter.
Despite Lionel Messi inspiring PSG to a victory against Toulouse, Mbappe’s absence was palpable in the French Cup round of 16 clash against arch-rivals Marseille, as PSG succumbed to a 2-1 defeat.
PSG can’t afford to have Mbappe out for a long time, as he has been one of the most prolific players in Europe this season.
Mbappe has racked up a whopping tally of 25 goals and six assists in all competitions for PSG this season.
He has bagged eight goals at the World Cup in Qatar – which saw him bag the Golden Boot award.
The odds are against Les Parisiens as they not only could miss Mbappe for the Champions League clash, but their recent struggles also remain a concern.
PSG have already suffered three defeats since the turn of the year, and they face an uphill battle against Julian Nagelsmann’s side next week.
