Kylian Mbappé was tested for coronavirus after falling ill on Monday … with negative results, relief for his fans and his team.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker had contracted fairly severe angina before the Champions League second leg match against Borussia Dortmund, scheduled for 9 p.m. this evening. But since this angina is accompanied by fever, the football star, in the current context, finally had to comply with the coronavirus test.
“We are trying to see if he can train a bit tonight. We have to wait and decide tomorrow morning, ” coach Thomas Tuchel told PSG TV yesterday.

Spanish international Pablo Sarabia could be a possible replacement if Mbappe misses the match after more days without being able to train.
Recall that PSG had lost 2-1 against Dortmund to a crowd of 80,000 people in Germany last month, but the return match will be played in an empty Parc des Princes due to the epidemic of coronavirus.
“We are a team that likes to attack, and we are going to attack. We will try to score as many goals as possible, ” said Tuchel.
“But if the final score is 1-0 for us, I would be perfectly happy. “
The PSG match in Strasbourg this weekend has been postponed due to the scale of the epidemic virus in the Alsace region of eastern France.
