PSG Kylian Mbappe injured in French Cup final

PSG were awarded the league title after the season was ended early and this win means they have completed a league and cup double.

However, their hopes of adding League Cup and Champions League success to that have been dented by the injury to Mbappe.

With many players struggling to get up to speed after four months without competitive football, Mbappe was one of the most lively players on the pitch in the opening stages. It was his powerful shot that led to the opener as Jessy Moulin spilled the ball at Neymar’s feet for the opener.

PSG were considerably less threatening after Mbappe went off injured and a lengthy absence will be a real blow to the French champions’ hopes of success in Europe, with the 21-year-old having scored 29 goals in 33 appearances for PSG this season.

“Everyone is worried. Everyone who saw the foul is worried. Of course I’m worried,” said boss Thomas Tuchel.

“We have to be patient because we don’t have any news. I think he will undergo tests tonight.”

PSG captain Thiago Silva, added: “I hope Kylian is going to recover as quickly as possible because he’s a vital player for us.”
