Edinson Cavani: PSG striker may miss first leg of Man Utd tie

Good News for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain suffer possible double injury blow ahead of Champions League clash

Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani is doubtful for Champions League clash against Manchester United after limping off in his side's slim win over Bordeaux. But they will still feel the absence of Neymar and Cavani - if the latter can't play.

The Man United vs PSG clash at Old Trafford this Tuesday will be the first European game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ever since he took charge of the club. In my opinion, the news will not be very very good.

Speaking on French television on Sunday, manager Thomas Tuchel said: "There is no good news for Edi this morning".

"It's super hard. If we miss several players the challenge will be even bigger".

"We will have to wait another night and day to have a clearer idea and get more tests done".

The Brazil captain has been ruled out until at least April with a foot injury and Cavani failed to appear for the second half of PSG's 1-0 victory over Girondins on Saturday.

Italian midfielder Marco Verratti is also doubtful due to injury.

"We must analyse Manchester United, and remain calm and confident. They need to know how to control and handle the pressure, but without two or three of them, it is up to us to come up with solutions". "If we are missing lots of key players, it's an even bigger challenge, but we will be ready on Tuesday, I think".

Such is their margin for error domestically that Tuchel could afford to wrap a host of key players in cotton wool with the Champions League in mind.

Meunier has suffered concussion and will be examined again at the end of this week before he can return to action.

"Marco Verratti wants to play but he only played 60 minutes once", he said.
