PSG’s Cavani a Doubt for Man United Clash

Paris Saint-Germain have been left sweating over the fitness of Edinson Cavani after the Uruguayan forward was withdrawn in the club’s weekend clash with Bordeaux.

Cavani opened the scoring for the French champions after 42 minutes on Saturday by converting from the spot at Parc des Princes.

But it was his last contribution in the Ligue 1 clash, as he limped off during the final minutes of the first half. PSG declined to make an immediate substitution, with Kylian Mbappe eventually replacing Cavani at the break.

First indications suggested that the forward felt discomfort in his right thigh, and post-match Thomas Tuchel confirmed a muscle injury, though the severity is something that is unknown at the current time.

“No, I don’t have good news for you,” Tuchel told Canal +. “It’s not the big muscle, but a muscle is affected anyway. We must wait. I didn’t see him or talk to the doctor.

“Honestly, I don’t know if he will be here on Tuesday. If he leaves us at half-time, I'm afraid it's serious. The sight of the injury worries me. It is definitely not a good sign.”

If Cavani does miss out only Mbappe will be available of the Ligue 1 leaders’ famed attacking trident. Neymar is also absent for PSG, having suffered a broken metatarsal against Strasbourg in January.

Between them, the trio have smashed an incredible 48 goals in the French top flight this season, as the Parisians have opened up a 13-point lead at the Ligue 1 summit. (Goal)
