Mbappe had been in doubt ahead of the fixture after picking up a knock in training; it was however stated that the French international would be under a 24 hours observation ahead of the game. The talented genius whose future remains uncertain travelled with the team opens the door to the probability of him featuring in the game.
Would Sergio Ramos Play In The Champions League Match; Real Madrid vs. PSG?
Sergio Ramos has also been declared unfit to feature in the game against his former side, Real Madrid. This fixture had been the most anticipated game for the Spanish international who left the club at the start of the season.
The fitness of Sergio Ramos since the start of the season had been of major concern to PSG and has affected his performances in key fixtures.
Would Toni Kroos Play In The Champions League Match; Real Madrid vs. PSG?
Toni Kroos had been in doubt, but it has been confirmed that he would feature in the tie if he were 100 percent fit. Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti in his press conference on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, stated that although Toni Kroos returned to training, he would not feature in the game unless he is 100% fit to do so.
"A player who is not at 100% can't play in this type of game," "If I think Kroos will be at 100%, he will play. If I think he will be at 95%, he won't play."
Fans can, however, not deny the importance of these players ahead of the tie as Mbappe had been very influential in PSG's first-leg win in the tie. However, this is a key fixture that would be closely monitored ahead of the quarter-finals.
