Cavani picked up the injury at the end of the first half and he limped off the pitch holding his right thigh shortly after scoring the only goal with a penalty.

Thomas Tuchel and his Paris Saint-Germain side are far from full strength ahead of their Champions League round of 16 tie against Manchester United on Tuesday night.

"He played 60 minutes, I don't know if it's possible for him to play again at Old Trafford against Manchester United only three days later", admitted Tuchel.

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. If we win at Old Trafford and we don't concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg. Yes, it is worrying.

"We always hope but the first exams are not good", Tuchel said.

The was some good news for PSG as midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the line-up after recovering from an ankle injury. "We have to wait for Marco's opinion". "For the big games in the Champions League, it is absolutely necessary to have key players with a lot of experience".

PSG are now 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 but their win over Bordeaux came after their toughest week of the season. "But we will be ready on Tuesday". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester.

However, Tuchel says the Italy global is eager to play a part.

Verratti lasted just under an hour before making way for recent signing Leandro Paredes, and Tuchel must now decide whether to start the Italian playmaker in England.
