If it’s Bayern, fine, but if it were Lyon it would certainly make it a very special occasion.”PSG are the first French side through to the final of the Champions League since Monaco in 2004 after goals by Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Juan Bernat saw off Leipzig in a one-sided encounter at the Estadio da Luz.They would perhaps not be favourites in a final against Bayern, but they certainly would be against Lyon.PSG won the Ligue 1 title while Lyon came seventh in a season that was curtailed because of the coronavirus pandemic.The teams met as recently as the end of July in the French League Cup final, with PSG winning on penalties after a 0-0 draw.Mbappe missed that game because of an ankle injury, suffered in the French Cup final against Saint-Etienne a week earlier.However, he returned to play a key role off the bench in the 2-1 quarter-final win over Atalanta last week and started against Leipzig.“The truth is that the night I got my injury against Saint-Etienne I thought that was it, that I wouldn’t come back” for the Champions League ‘Final Eight’, he said.“I cried all night, but the next morning I woke up and said to myself that I would do everything I could, get treatment all day and come home and get more treatment.“I knew the team would need me at some point, maybe not for my physical presence on the field but also being around the team and showing them I was ok.“I never wanted them to see that I was suffering. It was a difficult time but it was a real pleasure to come back against Atalanta and help the team qualify today.”Mbappe, 21, admitted he is still not back to peak fitness.last_img read more
