PSG's Cavani doubtful for Man United game

Cavani suffered what L'Equipe reported Sunday as a torn thigh muscle, probably when blasting home the 42nd minute penalty that gave PSG a 1-0 victory in Bordeaux. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester.

"We have to wait".

Speaking on French television on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel said: "There is no good news for Edi this morning". But when Edi comes out in the 43rd minute, I'm scared, it's clear.

Manchester United are likely to be given a boost ahead of their Champions League last-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain by news that Edinson Cavani is expected to be ruled out. Since then, the Red Devils are yet to lose a game and they have dropped just 2 points across all competitions thereby proving that Manchester United still have it in them to compete on the biggest stage.

And Tuchel conceded the loss of Cavani, combined with the absence of Neymar, would force him to reevaluate his entire game plan for their biggest match of the season to date - the first leg of their Champions League tie with Manchester United.

"I think we have to improve in terms of mentality, attitude and the spirit of sacrifice for the team".

Tuchel's side will already be missing Brazil striker Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury.

"Our game against Manchester United needs to be beefier, stronger, with a different attitude".

The was some good news for PSG as midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the line-up after recovering from an ankle injury.

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions". Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes.

However, with the Portuguese's sacking, United have been on the uptrend under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they are now unbeaten in 11 successive games which includes 10 wins.
