Champions League: Cavani injured ahead of PSG's trip to play Manchester United

Edinson Cavani Ligue 1 PSG nantes 22122018

The Uruguay striker left the pitch on the stroke of halftime holding his thigh, soon after scoring with a penalty in the 42nd minute.

The Uruguay worldwide was one of few PSG stars to start the match, as Tuchel kept the likes of Leandro Paredes and Kylian Mbappe in reserve ahead of the last-16 first leg at Old Trafford.

"We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar", said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.

If Mbappe is forced to drop into midfield as much as that, United's centre-backs will breathe a huge sigh of relief. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to play. We will wait for training on Friday to see if they will play on Saturday. The club will communicate on this a bit later.

"I can't think about so many different plans in advance". "We always hope but the first exams are not good".

"We await the final session and I hope that they will both be able to play versus Bordeaux. In matches like these, decisive Champions League games, you absolutely need your key men as they are experienced in handling pressure in matches like this one".

Beto O'Rourke to join march against wall countering Trump visit
Statistics gathered by the El Paso Times indicated that the city has actually seen a rise in violent crimes since 2006. This will be the president's first rally in the city since he began his White House bid in 2015.

Neymar is already missing for the game with a broken metatarsal and midfielder Marco Verratti is also a doubt. If Edi is not there in Manchester, of course it is big. For Manchester United, I do not know yet, I simply do not know.

And speaking after the game, Tuchel said: "If he [Cavani] comes off, obviously I am anxious".

Tuchel said: "Tonight Edinson suffered a muscle injury".

"Yes, there has been a lot of bad luck - we do not have a second Edi, or Neymar".

Verratti lasted just under an hour before making way for recent signing Leandro Paredes, and Tuchel must now decide whether to start the Italian playmaker in England.

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