PSG's Mbappe out for 3 weeks, could miss Champions League QF

PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappe could miss Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League quarterfinal against Atalanta after being ruled out for around three weeks to recover from an ankle ligament injury. The diagnosis came two and a half weeks before PSG is due to face Atalanta in Lisbon on Aug. 12 when the competition resumes after its pandemic-enforced break.

Mbappe was hurt on Friday in the second half of PSG’s 1-0 win over Saint-Etienne in the French Cup final. “The imaging workup performed today confirms a sprained ankle with external ligament injury," PSG said in a statement. "Following this trauma, the recovery time is estimated at around 3 weeks.”

The 21-year-old Mbappe has 30 goals in 34 appearances this season
