Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has confirmed that he will miss the club’s opening UEFA Champions League 2019/20 encounter vs Real Madrid.
PSG are set to start their UCL campaign with a home encounter vs Los Blancos on Wednesday, 18th September. However, they will be without one of their most important players in Mbappe.
The 21-year-old confirmed the news through a tweet which read, “It’s now official, I will not start our European campaign at home against Madrid. I am very sad not to be able to play but I will bring all my support from the stands to the team and I hope to return 100% to still and always give my maximum.”
C’est désormais officiel, je ne débuterai pas notre campagne européenne à la maison contre Madrid.
Je suis très triste de ne pas pouvoir jouer mais j’apporterai tout mon soutien depuis les tribunes à l’équipe et j’espère revenir à 100% pour encore et toujours donner mon maximum. pic.twitter.com/e8XNhZnzQL

PSG will be without the services of Neymar as well who is set to miss out because of a three-match ban in UEFA competitions on him. Madrid themselves will be without a few crucial names, which takes some of the sheen away from the high profile encounter.
