Edinson Cavani is a significant 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. The Uruguay striker left the pitch on the stroke of halftime holding his thigh, soon after scoring with a penalty in the 42nd minute.
Cavani’s injury appears to be bad news at this point for PSG. Thomas Tuchel, PSG head coach said, “I don’t have good news. We have to wait,” said three days before PSG take on United at Old Trafford in a Champions League last-16 first-leg match. Tuchel’s side will also be missing Brazil striker Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury. “I honestly don’t know if Cavani will play which is very worrying. We don’t have another Edi like we don’t have another Neymar,” Tuchel added.
