Suspended for the match of the 36th day of Ligue 1 against Rennes on Sunday, Kylian Mbappé should, according to Le Parisien, return to the field for the semi-final of the Coupe de France against Montpellier on Wednesday. The striker did not play in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City.
It ultimately did not come into play on Tuesday, when PSG was eliminated by Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg (2-0). Visibly reduced in the first leg, affected in the right calf, Kylian Mbappé remained on the bench.
During the first round, he had appeared little to his advantage, almost transparent. He will still have a little extra rest since he is suspended for the match of the 36th day of Ligue 1 against Rennes on Sunday. According to Le Parisien, the world champion could return to the field next Wednesday, for the semi-final of the Coupe de France on the ground of Montpellier.
Not sure he is a holder
His status as a holder is not yet assured and will depend on the coming days and the evolution of his state of form. Faced with the Skyblues, the Parisian staff had preferred to remain cautious. Especially since Paris still has to do the work in the league as in the Coupe de France to try to avoid a blank season. PSG will complete its Ligue 1 season in Brest, after receiving Reims.
