PSG hands big boost to Manchester United ahead of Champions League clash

Man Utd

United have been handed a huge boost ahead of their crunch European tie with PSG, with talisman Edinson Cavani set to sit out through injury.

"Honestly, I don't know if he will be here on Tuesday".

PSG faces United in the return leg of their last-16 match on March 6, with some French media reporting Cavani will be out for one month.

"Are we favourites? No, I think we're level, it's 50-50". The form of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial has hogged all the headlines, and at home, they could well be favourites against PSG when they come visiting for the Champions League clash on Tuesday.

"There is no good news this morning", coach Thomas Tuchel said in an interview with TF1 this Sunday.

"We have to wait".

Tuchel's side will already be missing Brazil striker Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to play, ' said manager Thomas Tuchel after the tie.

Gianluigi Buffon was not happy with Paris Saint-Germain's display against Bordeaux and is demanding more against Manchester United. "We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar". Without Ney [Neymar], maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi [Cavani], now we need a plan D.

The Uruguay forward has scored 21 in 25 appearances this season - only Kylian Mbappé has managed more in Ligue 1 - and if he is ruled out Tuchel will be hugely reliant on the France global to carry the mantle against United.

Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier is also out of the first leg, with PSG confirming he suffered a concussion during Saturday's match.

"Marco Verratti wants to play but he only played 60 minutes once", he said.
