Mbappe rested for Madrid – report

Kylian Mbappe will not take part in Paris Saint-Germain’s weekend clash with Troyes following a foot injury concern, say reports.

The teenager was withdrawn with an unspecified foot injury and replaced by Javier Pastore during Wednesday’s Coupe de France semi-final win over Marseille.

A report in L’Equipe now states the former Monaco striker will not be risked in Ligue 1 this weekend to ensure he is fully fit to take on Madrid on Tuesday.

The teenager joined PSG from Monaco last summer in a season-long loan deal with a €170m compulsory purchase option included within that deal.

Angel Di Maria netted twice during Wednesday’s clash, which came six days ahead of the meeting with Madrid, who lead 3-1 from the first leg at the Bernabeu.
