PSG win, but Cavani causes new injury headache before Man Utd clash

But they will still feel the absence of Neymar and Cavani - if the latter can't play.

The trio have smashed an incredible 48 goals in the French top flight this season, as the Parisians have opened up a 13-point lead at the Ligue 1 summit.

"It's very hard if we play with our best team, it's a big challenge".

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.

The Paris side are already with their injured Brazilian star Neymar for the tie so any potential lay-off for Cavani could deal their hopes of beating United a huge blow. The sight of the injury worries me.

Asked if the victory was ideal preparation for facing PSG, Solskjaer said: 'Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come.


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

When questioned about Cavani's chances of playing at Old Trafford, Tuchel replied: "A little hope, very small, but yes, we still have hope".

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi". Whether it is Manchester United, or Liverpool, you really need your key players, and they must be calm.

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

PSG also goes to United with doubts over whether key midfielder Marco Verratti should start the game, having played barely one hour against Bordeaux after recovering from a sprained ankle.

However, fast-forward a couple of months and add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into the mix, some may even label United as "dark horses" to win the whole competition.
