PSG 1-0 Bordeaux: Edinson Cavani injured days before Manchester United game

The sight of the injury worries me.

As for Cavani, Tuchel addressed his injury on Saturday evening, stating: "He told me he picked up the injury when he took the penalty".

It was first confirmed a couple of weeks ago that Neymar would miss the Man United vs PSG encounter due to a foot injury and the Brazilian will also not be available for the return leg.

The Uruguay global 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.

Cavani was one of the few PSG stars to start the Ligue 1 clash at the Parc des Princes and he scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot after Thomas Meunier had been fouled by Nicolas de Preville. Our game against Manchester United needs to be beefier, stronger, with a different attitude.

However, after the game, Thomas Tuchel admitted that the 31-year-old suffered a muscle injury, though the severity is something that is unknown at the current time. For Manchester United, I do not know yet, I simply do not know. "We have already lost Ney", Tuchel added. In any case, we must wait.

Asked if today's win was ideal preparation for facing PSG, he said: "Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come".

"You've got to trust the players, because the league is vital for us but it's a chance for them to say "I should play on Tuesday".

TUKO.co.ke recalls that Paris Saint-Germain have made Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante top priority signing this summer.
