KYLIAN MBAPPE is a major doubt for the Champions League after he was spotted on CRUTCHES as PSG won the Coupe de France.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar was left in tears after a nasty tackle left him in tears and sparked a 22-man brawl at the Stade de France.

Saint-Etienne captain Loic Perrin was sent off following the sliding tackle as PSG went on to win the trophy again thanks to a solo Neymar goal.

After 31 minutes of the final, with the score 1-0 to Paris Saint-Germain, Mbappe launched towards goal on one of his trademark runs.

However veteran centre-back Perrin lunged in and trapped the 21-year-old’s ankle under his knee.

Mbappe was left in agony on the turf as PSG players reacted furiously.

Social distancing was thrown out of the window as seemingly every player on the pitch pushed and shoved over the incident.

Referee Amaury Delerue calmed the sparring squads and even booked Marco Verratti on Les Parisiens’ bench.

VAR recommended the official review Perrin’s original tackle and replays showed the incredibly painful looking injury suffered by Mbappe.

Delerue quickly showed a red card to the Saint-Etienne skipper, who in turn looked devastated as he trudged off, leaving his side in the lurch.

Meanwhile, Mbappe appeared to be in tears while limping off the pitch, with substitute Mauro Icardi replacing the PSG star.

Claude Puel’s ASSE side certainly came out with a combative approach and midfielder Yvann Macon was booked after just 60 seconds for a cynical foul on Neymar.

The game, France’s first major match since their coronavirus pandemic lockdown, allowed 5,000 fans into the national stadium to watch the game under social distancing protocols.

PSG next face Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue final, looking to secure a domestic treble, but face an anxious wait for Mbappe to be fit to face Atalanta in the Champions League quarter-final.

That game takes place in Lisbon on August 12.
