The French star sustained a thigh strain during yesterday’s 3-1 win at Montpellier.

He now faces three weeks on the sidelines and will miss some crucial games, according to Get Football News France.
By far the biggest is PSG’s last 16 game against Bayern with the French giants still chasing their first Champions League trophy.
It has become almost an obsession for Paris Saint-Germain but they have fallen short repeatedly over the last few years.
Mbappe, widely seen as among the world’s best players, would have been as a key factor in overcoming the German opponents.
But with only 12 days until the first leg at the Parc des Princes, PSG boss Christophe Galtier may now need to rethink his plans.
Mbappe also faces missing league games against Toulouse, Monaco and Lille while a cup game at Marseille next week may also be beyond him.
There are also questions over Neymar’s fitness after he missed the game against Montpellier.
Between them the pair have contributed 34 goals in all competitions this season.
PSG and Bayern’s game is one of several mouth-watering games in Europe’s top competition set to take place later this month.
Liverpool also take on Real Madrid in a repeat of last year’s final, while Dortmund take on big-spending Chelsea.
The Europa League is also set for one of it’s biggest knockout games ever.
