Paris Saint-Germain will be busy the next few days, which kicks off on Friday when they face OGC Nice at the Parc des Princes. Afterward, the capital club welcomes Borussia Dortmund to Matchday 1 of the UEFA Champions League. Still, the question is, will Kylian Mbappé be available?
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner didn’t play in Les Bleus’ 2-1 to Germany at Signal Iduna Park. Afterward, France manager Didier Deschamps revealed that the Frenchman’s patella tendon was bothering him.
Nonetheless, Le Parisien reported on Wednesday that Mbappé’s health does not raise concerns ahead of PSG’s matches against Nice and Dortmund. The next question will be if manager Luis Enrique decides to risk Mbappé or play it safe and rely on his depth.

Furthermore, Mbappé isn’t the only player on the Ligue 1 side who has dealt with an injury, as COPE reports that Asensio is finally out until the next international break.
PSG should get past Nice without Mbappé or at least him playing limited minutes, considering the depth the club secured this summer. The French national team should be ready, though, to face Dortmund. If the Parisians hope to get off on the right in this challenging group, they’ll need Mbappé.
