Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League hopes were given a boost Monday with manager Thomas Tuchel telling reporters striker Kylian Mbappe could start against RB Leipzig.

The French forward came off the bench for the last 30 minutes against Atalanta last week to set up the injury-time winner for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Mbappe, 21, had been suffering with an ankle injury sustained in the French Cup final on July 24, but Tuchel said the 2018 World Cup winner had suffered no reaction.

"Yes, he played 30 minutes against Atalanta and had no problems with his ankle," Tuchel said.

"So he will train and if there is the possibility for him to start, we will see if can play the 90 minutes," he added.
