Kylian Mbappe is included in PSG for the rematch of Man City
Posted On May 3, 2021
Paris Saint-Germain have included striker Killian Mbape in their squad for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final against Manchester City, although the Frenchman is battling a calf injury.
Mbape complained of discomfort after the first match, a 2-1 victory in favor of City and was left out of the squad to face Lance due to this injury.
Despite fears that he would not be ready for Tuesday’s match, PSG confirmed on its official website that Mbape is included in the squad and will travel with the team to the Etihad Stadium.
At first glance, it seems that Mbape has recovered from his problem, but footage has been captured by The Parisian would suggest otherwise.
Mbappe was filmed arriving at the airport with the rest of the crew, but he was walking with a very obvious lame, very much like the robot we all believe is secretly deep inside.
With that in mind, Mbape seems unlikely to start against City and has a good chance of not even going on the pitch.
Apart from Mbape, PSG are almost in full force for the decisive draw, with only the eliminated Idrissa Guy joining left back Juan Bernat on the sidelines.
PSG enters the game following a goal and must score at least twice to cancel City’s two away goals, and Neymar called on fans to stand behind the team and make them win.
“We have a very difficult match against Manchester City, but we have to believe, regardless of the statistics or our percentage chance of winning,” he told the club’s official website.
“I think every Parisian should believe in us, I will be the first to do it. I will fight and do my best to win.”
