Real Madrid fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight that Paris Saint-Germain superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are set to miss the Champions League fixture between the two on Wednesday.

As reported by Marca, Mbappe will miss the clash due to a muscle injury picked up against Toulouse, whilst Neymar carries his three-game ban from last year’s campaign when he picked up a suspension after the Round of 16 knockout to Manchester United because of his comments about the refereeing.
Indeed, Los Blancos fans are rightfully so ecstatic that the two are set to miss out, as Neymar bagged 20 goals in 23 appearances last season, whilst Mbappe netted 37 times in 37 games.
The Brazilian is also no stranger to a goal against Madrid, scoring three goals in El Clasico’s in his Barcelona days, and recently, the 27-year-old scored a stunning injury-time winner against Strasbourg.
Elsewhere, fans have their own issues to deal with, as Sergio Ramos is suspended, whilst Luka Modric and Isco are both expected miss out through injury (as per Transfermarkt).
However, fans are at least buzzing to see the PSG stars absent, and here’s what they had to say…
its still gonna be though becuse psg got plenty of options. such as icardi di maria etc
