PARIS — Kylian Mbappe could miss Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League quarterfinal against Atalanta after being ruled out for around three weeks to recover from an ankle ligament injury.

The diagnosis came two and a half weeks before PSG is due to face Atalanta in Lisbon on Aug. 12 when the competition resumes after its pandemic-enforced break.
