Paris Saint-Germain have announced that superstar striker Kylian Mbappé will be out of action for an estimated three weeks. The thigh injury picked up in the 3-1 win in Montpellier in Round 21 will see him miss the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash with Bayern Munich.

Paris Saint-Germain's star striker Kylian Mbappé has been ruled out for an estimated three weeks after injuring his thigh against Montpellier on Wednesday night. He is expected to miss the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich on 14 February, his club announced on Thursday.

Terrible timing

The PSG No.7, suffering from an injury to his left thigh, is also expected to miss Wednesday's Coupe de France round of 16 tie at Marseille. In Ligue 1 Uber Eats, the Parisian is out for Toulouse (R22), Monaco (R23), and Lille (R24). The Classique at the Orange Vélodrome in R25 is scheduled for Sunday 26 February.

In the 20th minute of the clash with MHSC, Kylian Mbappé, alerted the bench and asked to be subbed off. The France star left the pitch at La Mosson holding his left thigh and was replaced by young centre-forward Hugo Ekitike.

Ramos hit in the adductors

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos has picked up a left adductor injury, announced coach Christophe Galtier, who took him off after 32 minutes in Montpellier. Replaced by Renato Sanches (32'), the Spaniard also seemed to be affected by a knock to the head sustained in the 13th minute.

"Sergio, who had an aerial challenge that saw him fall backwards, hurt his adductor muscle, but we don't think it's serious," explained the coach in a press conference. "Sergio preferred to go off and not take any risks."

The club said on Thursday that the Spaniard would undergo further tests.
