That is a striking statistic: in the last 5 times that Kylian Mbappé did not start for Paris Saint-Germain, the club won. All those 5 times it was under the guidance of trainer Mauricio Pochettino. The reason for the statistics is that Mbappé cannot start on Tuesday evening against Manchester City, in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The French striker has not been found fit in time for the semi-final match. That is why Mauro Icardi plays in the point of the PSG attack. Kevin De Bruyne is the false number 9 at Manchester City.
