PARIS (AP) – Kylian Mbappé has shaken off a minor thigh injury and is fit to play against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinals on Wednesday.
Mbappé came off with the injury near the end of PSG’s 3-1 win at Metz in the French league on Saturday, jeopardizing his chances of playing in the first leg at Parc des Princes.
However, the 22-year-old Mbappé will be in the squad for the match against City, with PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino saying Tuesday that left-back Juan Bernat and reserve goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier are the only players missing. Mbappé, one of the world’s most talented players, has scored eight goals in this season’s Champions League – second only to the 10 netted by Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
