Edinson Cavani is a major doubt for Paris St Germain's Champions League clash with Manchester United after picking up a thigh injury in his team's 1-0 Ligue 1 win over Girondins de Bordeaux on Saturday. He has undergone exams and there will be more tests here at the training centre.

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

"There is a little bit of hope, though, because there is always hope".

Edinson Cavani scored Paris St-Germain's victor against Bordeaux before going off injured to make him a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Manchester United. My feeling is that it's going to be very hard for Ed to play, but we have to wait a little longer because he's taking exams now. Striking the ball and having to come off is concerning.

This will be music to the ears of Manchester United as the side has been in good form in the recent past. Thomas Tuchel confirmed at the post-match presser that there was indeed a muscle tear, but then we await the seriousness of the injury. It is necessary to have these backup ideas in mind and I can think of several in advance.


However, Tuchel said there was good news for another of his key players, midfielder Marco Verratti, who started against Bordeaux after three weeks out with an ankle problem.

"Marco Verratti wants to play but he only played 60 minutes once", he said. Whether it is Manchester United, or Liverpool, you really need your key players, and they must be calm.

PSG face rejuvenated Man United side who are yet to lose since the arrival of Solskjaer in December 2018.
