Neymar and Mbappe set to miss Champions League clash against Real Madrid


Paris Saint-Germain will be without both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for Wednesday night's  Champions League clash with Real Madrid in the French capital.

Neymar - strongly linked with Barcelona during the summer - made a scoring return for PSG at the weekend as he came up with a late winner in the Ligue 1 clash against Strasbourg.

The Brazil international has carried a three-game European ban over from last season, however, due to comments made about the refereeing in the French club's last-16 loss to Manchester United.

Mbappe, meanwhile, has missed PSG's last two league matches with a hamstring problem, and the 20-year-old will not be available to face Zinedine Zidane's side on home soil.

PSG are currently top of Ligue 1 with 12 points from their five matches, but they suffered a 2-1 loss at Rennes last month, while as mentioned, the team needed a late Neymar effort to overcome Strasbourg on Saturday.

Club Brugge and Galatasaray make up Champions League Group A alongside PSG and Madrid, who will be seen as the overwhelming favourites to progress to the round of 16.
