Edinson Cavani celebrates a PSG goal with Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe and Cavani set to miss PSG's Champions League clash with Real Madrid

The French powerhouse will have a whole lot of talent sitting in the stands.

KYLIAN MBAPPE, NEYMAR and Edinson Cavani are all set to miss Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League meeting with Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The Ligue 1 champions confirmed today that Mbappe and Cavani are unlikely to resume first-team training until the end of this week. Neither player has featured since suffering muscle strains in the 4-0 defeat of Toulouse last month.

With Neymar suspended due to comments made in the wake of PSG’s exit at Manchester United hands last season, Mauro Icardi will likely lead the line at Parc des Princes.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is the other option at head coach Thomas Tuchel’s disposal.

Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer and Colin Dagba will also miss the visit of Zinedine Zidane’s side as they continue to recover from injury problems.
