KYLIAN MBAPPE has been ruled out of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League Round of 16 encounter with Real Madrid through injury, according to reports.
The French wonderkid was stretchered off following a nasty collision with Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes on Sunday, and reports from ESPN in Spain claim that Mbappe injured his back in the challenge and will need two months on the sidelines.
The speed merchant was bearing down on goal but was clattered by shot stopper Lopes who flung himself at the young Frenchman.
Mbappe looked in serious pain as he lay on the ground motionless as worried team-mates came to check on his well-being.
But there appear to be conflicting reports over his injury with reports from France claiming there is “no signs to worry about.”
The 19-year-old also took to Twitter after the contest to confirm that he was fine although he would have had further tests on Monday morning.
And if reports of his injury are true, then PSG have suffered a massive blow in their quest to become kings of Europe.
The two footballing giants go head-to-head on February 14th in the first-leg of their highly-anticipated knockout fixture.
The return clash in Paris takes place on March 6.
The forward has been in sensational form this campaign scoring nine league goals and assisting eight in 15 starts.
