Christophe Galtier Updates Kylian Mbappe's Availability for Bayern Munich Match

According to Christophe Galtier, manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), they don't want to take any chances due to Kylian Mbappe's ailment. 

As a result, the attacker is probably going to miss the opening leg of their Round of 16 match against Bayern Munich on February 14.

The French star needed to be replaced in the 21st minute of Parisians' 3-1 victory over Montpellier in Ligue 1 due to a ligament issue. 

Since then, Mbappe has missed three games across all leagues, 

and he is probably going to miss their upcoming Champions League match as well.

On February 11, following PSG's 3-1 defeat to AS Monaco, Galtier gave an update on Mbappe's availability for the upcoming match against Bayern.

In my opinion, no. Kylian is adhering to his treatment plan after suffering a serious muscular injury. The state of the player's health is crucial. Other games will be left behind.

A double conflict with other appointments is present. We will put absolutely no risk on Kylian in the hopes that we will have Verratti and Messi back on Tuesday.
