PSG coach Unai Emery confirmed that striker Kylian Mbappe is fine and will be available against Real Madrid after suffering concussion-like symptoms during their last game.

Reports from France indicated that Mbappe would have to miss two months but then PSG denied those claims. Now, Emery has confirmed that the attacker wants to play tomorrow.

Real Madrid face PSG in the Champions League Round of 16. The French side have been brilliant this season and it won't be easy for Los Blancos to obtain the ticket to the next round after their mediocre start to the season. Mbappe was reportedly on Real Madrid's radar all summer long but Los Blancos ended up deciding not to sign the attacker.

It will be interesting to see what Mbappe will be able to do against Real Madrid after Los Blancos didn't complete his signing last summer. However, Madrid will also have to focus on Neymar and Cavani, who have been excellent this season.
