But Mbappe was substituted in the 70th minute due to a precaution. “He got hit, sprained his ankle in the first half,” Mauricio Pochettino replied after the match. But the injury was not serious, Mbappe went to the French national team. The national team of France will play a home game with Ukraine, and after that they will play against Kazakhstan.
Mbappe is considered one of the best footballers in the world. Many clubs want to buy the player, but PSG is not ready to sell their player. Mbappe moved to PSG in 2017 for 160 million euros.

The teams played with each other in the final of last season, then Bayern won 1:0. An interesting confrontation awaits us.
