It was expected, but we will still have to wait. PSG striker Kylian Mbappé, injured in the adductors, is forfeited for the trip to Clermont on Saturday at the opening of Ligue 1, the club from the capital announced on Friday August 5 in a statement.

Mbappe”will remain in care at the training center. A new point will be made in 72 hours“, said PSG. The world champion was suspended during the Champions Trophy won on Sunday against Nantes (4-0).

Christophe Galtier will therefore rely, in attack, on Neymar, Lionel Messi, Pablo Sarabia, Arnaud Kalimuendo as well as rookie Hugo Ekitiké. Defender Nordi Mukiele, another new Parisian, is also part of the group.
