Good News for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain suffer possible double injury blow ahead of Champions League clash

Cavani put PSG ahead from the penalty spot in the 42nd minute when, moments later, he walked off before the halftime whistle.

Neymar has been ruled out until April with a metatarsal injury and striker Edinson Cavani, who has scored 22 goals this season, is a huge doubt after PSG confirmed that he sustained an injury to his right thigh against Bordeaux.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel admitted he might need to resort to "Plan D" in the approaching Champions League showdown with Manchester United after Edinson Cavani sparked a new injury scare on Saturday.

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

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. "I'm anxious because we are missing key players". Yes, it is worrying.

"It'll be super hard [for him to play at Old Trafford]".

"In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing".

"If he comes off, obviously I am anxious".

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi".

It's a potentially big blow for the French team but also a boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United.

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions".

The Uruguay global is undergoing tests on Sunday to determine whether or not he will be ready for the Champions League last-16 trip to Old Trafford.

"Verratti can play and will play", said the German coach.

United, meanwhile, have run into form since replacing Jose Mourinho with Solskjaer at the end of December.
