Kylian Mbappe will miss the Champions League clash with Atalanta Bergamo. His club Paris Saint-Germain has confirmed that the 21-year-old forward has suffered a sprained ankle and will be out for at least three weeks. Mbappe was kicked out of the Coupe de France final on Saturday after a hard tackle from Saint-Etienne midfielder Loic Perrin.

A statement by PSG read: “As announced after the final of the Coupe de France against Saint-Etienne, Kylian Mbappe was examined on Monday in order to know the severity of his right ankle injury. The examination performed today confirms a sprained ankle with external ligament injury. Following this, the recovery time is estimated at around three weeks.”

This means that Mbappe will certainly miss the clash with Atalanta in the quarter final of the Champions League on August 13. The French forward could be fit in time for the semi-final or final should the Parisians manage to get that far in the tournament. The final stages of the Champions League will be played in Lisbon in a short 8 team one-legged tournament due to the corona crisis pandemic.
