Edinson Cavani suffers thigh injury in PSG win

Edinson Cavani PSG Bordeaux Ligue 1 09022019

Tuchel said (as reported by Sky Sports): "Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa both trained without problems".

Coach Thomas Tuchel will be concerned whether Cavani, who clutched his right leg before going off, will be fit for Tuesday's trip to Old Trafford in the first leg of the last 16.

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.

With Edinson Cavani picking up an injury against Bordeaux, the FC panel examine how PSG would line up if he's ruled out against Manchester United.

Now though the manager has come out to claim that Marco Verratti is certainly in contention for the Man United game after he training with the first team. Our game against Manchester United needs to be beefier, stronger, with a different attitude. "We have already lost Ney", Tuchel added. "But we will be ready on Tuesday". "We have to wait". I don't know if he'll be able to play [against Manchester United] because I did not talk to Edi or the doctors after the match. "It's too much. These are quality players and the game is decisive".

PSG beat Bordeaux 1-0 to increase its lead in the French league to 13 points over second-placed Lille, which plays on Sunday.

When United were initially pitted against Les Parisiens, very few gave them the chance, given their struggles to garner regular wins under ex-boss Jose Mourinho.

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