Problems for PSG as Kylian Mbappe joins Neymar and Mauro Icardi on the sidelines

French forward ruled out of Champions League clash against RB Leipzig with a hamstring problem

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League clash against RB Leipzig with a hamstring problem.

Mbappe, 21, sustained the injury during Saturday's 3-0 Ligue 1 victory against Nantes and had to be withdrawn in the closing stages of the match.

"After going off during the game against Nantes with a right hamstring problem, Mbappe's not available for the trip to Germany and the situation will be reassessed in 48 hours," PSG said.

The French champions' striker problems are further exacerbated by the absence of Neymar and Mauro Icardi due to injuries, with the duo expected to return only after this month's international break.

PSG, who followed up a 2-1 home defeat by Manchester United with a 2-0 victory at Istanbul Basaksehir, are second in Group H of the Champions League with three points.
