PSG forward Kylian Mbappé is expected to miss their Champions League last quarter-final with Atalanta, after sustaining an ankle injury in the French Cup final victory over Saint-Etienne.

The Ligue 1 champions claimed a domestic double on Friday thanks to Neymar's solitary first half strike, but there was some concern around the half-hour mark, when the talismanic Mbappé was forced off clutching his ankle.

He was replaced by Pablo Sarabia, and has since undergone scans to determine the extent of the issue, which PSG now describe as 'damage to the external ligament.'

It is expected to keep him out for three weeks, meaning he will miss this weeks Coupe de la Ligue final with Lyon, and - barring a quicker recovery than expected - the Champions League quarter-final tie with Atalanta.

"As announced after the final of the Coupe de France against Saint-Étienne, Kylian Mbappé underwent further examinations to on his injured right ankle," a PSG statement reads.

"The results of today's scan confirmed an ankle sprain with damage to the external ligament. The player is expected to be sidelined for approximately three weeks.
