Extent of Mbappe's injury revealed

Mbappe's thigh injury: How long the PSG superstar will be sidelined

August 26, 2019 By Ali M.
The Frenchman limped off the pitch in the 4-0 win over Toulouse on Sunday.

Sunday's win over Toulouse came at a cost for PSG. The French champions were in action over the weekend and in their attempt to bounce back from the 2-1 loss to Rennes, the Ligue 1 powerhouse lost a few key players to injuries.

The biggest name to pick up a knock on Sunday was Kylian Mbappe. The World Cup winner began Sunday's game, which Les Parisiens won 4-0, but was unable to complete the full 90 minutes, being forced off the pitch almost halfway into the second half.

Tuchel could only watch on and worry as his goalscoring machine limped off the pitch. It was later reported that the former Monaco sensation suffered a tear in his thigh. According to Le Parisien, the 20-year-old is looking at a month on the sidelines.

This is a huge blow for Tuchel's side given that Mbappe was only one of three players to get injured in the Toulouse encounter. Edinson Cavani was the first victim as he saw his time on the pitch end after only 14 minutes due to a groin problem.

Diallo soon followed the Uruguayan, being taken off prior to the half-time. This means Tuchel will be without his attacking trio for Friday's clash with Metz. With Neymar yet to feature for the club, PSG are left with Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting to spearhead their attack.

With Barcelona failing to strike a deal for the Brazilian, the Ligue 1 champions might end up keeping Neymar and with the injuries to Mbappe and Cavani, he could be reintroduced to the lineup. However, the gaffer has admitted that his situation is complicated and a resolution must be reached before that can happen.

As for Mbappe, he is tipped to return after the international break. This means he is in line to miss France's Euro 2020 qualifiers as well as PSG's opening Champions League game.
