According to RMC Sport, Edinson Cavani, who was hit in the thigh on Saturday against Bordeaux, is out of the running for Manchester United-PSG.
What a jinx! In addition to Neymar, who was again on the right foot and out of the game for two months, PSG will face Manchester United without Edinson Cavani next Tuesday in the eighth round of the Champions League. On Sunday afternoon, RMC Sport announced the Uruguayan striker’s withdrawal from the game, as he injured his right thigh just after converting his penalty against Bordeaux (1-0) on Saturday afternoon in Ligue 1.
The radio quotes the player’s entourage and specifies that final examinations will determine the exact nature of the injury and therefore the duration of unavailability. Depending on the degree of the tear (if it is a muscle tear), “El Matador” could even miss the second leg on 6 March! The PSG has not yet communicated on the physical situation of its centre-forward.
Thomas Tuchel, interviewed on Sunday morning in Telefoot, was even more worried than the day before… “I don’t have any good news. My feeling is that it’s going to be very difficult to play on Tuesday. The first exams are not very good. There’s always a little hope,” said the German coach, who should be dealing with only Kylian Mbappé in the lead against the Red Devils.
