Kylian Mbappe was forced off the pitch in Paris St-Germain's win over Marseille due to an injury. The French star had a clash with Leonardo Balerdi, which was clearly seen to affect the striker's fitness. Mbappe tried to continue the game but was substituted before the start of the second half.
After the end of the meeting, the French media reported that it is a question of an ankle injury, which is not serious, but it is still expected to leave the attacker out of the green fields, for a certain period. According to sources close to the club, Mbappe could miss the Champions League clash with Newcastle on October 4. However, a more detailed report on the extent of the Frenchman's injury is expected in the coming days.
Meanwhile, in terms of the chronicle of the match, PSG ensured an important and safe victory against a strong opponent like Marseille. The Parisians scored a total of 4 goals, with authors Achraf Hakimi, Randal Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos who scored 2 times. The victory thus moves PSG up to third place in the Ligue 1 standings, 2 points behind Brest who currently lead the standings.
Coach Luis Enrique's men lost their last league game against Nice at home, with the score 2-3. Expectations are high for the Spanish coach, who despite having the difficult task of building a new team, cannot forgive himself for mistakes in the championship.
Marseille, on the other hand, is going through a difficult moment, as, like PSG, the team is trying to find a new game identity, after the dismissal of coach Marcelino. Marseille currently sit seventh overall in Ligue 1, but the season has just started and there are still plenty of games to play.
