PSG's Cavani doubtful for Man United game

  • Man Utd

The French side's head coach Thomas Tuchel said on Saturday that he was "worried" Cavani could miss the Champions League clash with United, after limping off against Bordeaux.

"But, in our situation, it's maybe necessary to try to make him play". In any case, we must wait.

And Mbappe's highlights from the second-half look promising for United, because without Neymar and Cavani, he was forced to drop deep a lot.

His absence against United would be a concern for the French champions, with strike partner Neymar already sidelined by a metatarsal injury. We have a Plan D.

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims that he could have joined Paris Saint-Germain in last summer's transfer window.

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions".




The Uruguay forward has scored 21 in 25 appearances this season - only Kylian Mbappé has managed more in Ligue 1 - and if he is ruled out Tuchel will be hugely reliant on the France worldwide to carry the mantle against United.

As a result, Mbappe started on the bench while Angel di Maria, Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer and Julian Draxler - all probable starters in midweek - were left out completely.

"Verratti can play and will play", said the German coach.

Cavani is joined by Meunier in missing the Old Trafford leg after neurological tests revealed light concussion after a heavy collision with Bordeaux's Francois Kamano during Saturday's encounter and PSG added that the Belgium worldwide will be unavailable until at least the end of next week.

European hopefuls Strasbourg lost 2-1 at home to Angers on Saturday, while Amiens beat Caen 1-0 to climb above Monaco and out of the relegation zone.
