The news surrounding Paris Saint-Germain these next few days is whether Kylian Mbappé will be ready for the UEFA Champions League contest against Newcastle United.
Mbappé left the 4-0 win over Olympique de Marseille in the first half with an injury. However, the squad was able to hold down the fort and scored three goals once the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner exited.
L’Equipe reports that the objective of the technical staff is for Mbappé to be 100 percent for the match against Newcastle on Wednesday.

Furthermore, the outlet reveals that no risk will be taken with the Frenchman for the trip to Clermont Foot this Saturday. As a result, PSG will have a few days to get the winger fit before the squad travels to St. James’ Park.
The Ligue 1 side can beat Clermont without the forward. However, if the Parisians want to leave England with three points, they’ll need Mbappé in the starting 11. St James’ Park will have an electric atmosphere, so having a player who will be immune to that environment will go a long way in calming down the entire team.
A draw would be ideal, but if PSG can get the win on the road, they can begin taking control of Group F while leaving the Magpies with one point after two matchdays.
