French professional soccer Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Kylian Mbappe (24) had a nightmarish night.
He missed two penalties and suffered a hamstring injury. He collapsed two weeks before the first leg of the round of 16 of the European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), stunned PSG club officials, who desperately needed their first championship.
Mbappe started in the Ligue 1 match against Montpellier on the 2nd. In the 7th minute of the first half, in a free kick situation, he took the penalty kick awarded by Sergio Ramos. He aimed for the left side of the goal, but it was caught by the goalkeeper. However, according to the judgment that the goalkeeper moved first, he got a chance to make up for his mistake. This time, he aimed at the right side of the goal. However, it hit the right goalpost. The bouncing ball was pushed into the empty goal again, but this time it passed over the goalpost. It was a series of immaturity that did not suit the title of the next generation soccer emperor.
The ordeal did not end there. In the 21st minute of the first half, he collapsed due to a left hamstring injury and was substituted out. The first leg of the UCL round of 16 against German professional football Bayern Munich (on the 15th) is less than 15 days away.
He grabbed his left hamstring and limped toward the bench.
After the game, coach Christophe Galtier said Mbappe’s injury was due to shock rather than a muscle problem.
Director Galtier said, “I was shocked on the back of the knee or the back of the thigh, so I will have to watch it.” Whether he has bruises or not is still unknown. “I don’t want to take a risk with a tight game schedule, but I don’t think it’s that serious.” 토토사이트
Contrary to Galtier’s prediction, if Mbappe’s thigh condition is bad, it means that PSG will have to deal with the rival Bayern Munich without Mbappe. Currently, Neymar is suffering from ‘muscle fatigue’. It’s not an ideal situation at a time when the district’s leading attacking trio of Lionel Messi-Neymar-Mbappe needs to organize.
Meanwhile, PSG won 3-0 with Fabian Lewis, Messi and Warren Jair Emery scoring one goal each, leading the league with 51 points.
