PARIS (Reuters) - Paris St Germain strikers Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi are fit to return for the Ligue 1 champions’ trip to Girondins de Bordeaux after recovering from injuries, coach Thomas Tuchel said on Friday.

France’s Mbappe, who has been out for over a month with a muscle problem and Argentine Icardi, sidelined for a week with a groin injury, will be available for Saturday’s encounter against Bordeaux.

Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, however, will miss out because he has not fully recovered from a hip injury that has kept him out of action for a month.

The return of Mbappe and Icardi will give PSG a big boost after they lost 2-0 at home to Stade de Reims on Wednesday, having failed to score at the Parc des Princes for the first time in 45 matches.

PSG lead the standings with 15 points from seven games, ahead of Angers on goal difference.
