Forwards Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani have been ruled out for the opening group phase match of the Champions League in Paris St Germain, which will be played on Wednesday against Real Madrid, said the French Ligue 1 champions.

Mbappé suffered an injury to his left thigh and was forced off the field last month against Toulouse, and has not played for PSG since, while Cavani is out of action due to a hip problem.

PSG confirmed on Monday that the two strikers will return to training at the end of the week.

Thomas Tuchel’s side will also be without Neymar, as the Brazilian striker will not be able to play three Champions League matches for insulting the referee after PSG’s loss to Manchester United in last season’s Round of 16.

Mbappé, Neymar and Cavani scored 11 of PSG’s 20 goals in last season’s Champions League, and the trio will again be crucial in the 2019-20 season, in which the club hopes to go further.
