Buffon anxious by PSG attitude ahead of Manchester United showdown

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

Alarm bells at PSG as Cavani injured and a doubt for Man Utd game

Cavani suffered what L'Equipe reported Sunday as a torn thigh muscle, probably when blasting home the 42nd minute penalty that gave PSG a 1-0 victory in Bordeaux.

"I don't have good news".

"My feeling is that it's going to be very hard for him to play". We must wait. I didn't see him or talk to the doctor. The club will communicate on this a bit later.

"I can't think about so many different plans in advance. We always hope, but the first exam was not good". "In matches like these, decisive Champions League games, you absolutely need your key men as they are experienced in handling pressure in matches like this one".

Tuchel's side will already be missing Brazil striker Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury.

Busy Kings crushed in Houston
Exciting trade developments for the Kings as they looked to extend their three-game winning streak Wednesday. Wojnarowski adds that the Rockets will attach a second-round draft pick in order to push the deal through.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel faces the task of drumming up an emergency plan for the visit to Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League in the definite absence of Neymar and the possible unavailability of Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani. The sight of the injury worries me. Striking the ball and having to come off is concerning.

It's a potentially big blow for the French team but also a boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United. "We don't have a second "Edi", Tuchel told Canal+, but he later insisted that he did have solutions in mind if needed. Without "Ney", maybe without Marco, maybe without "Edi".

Some good news for Tuchel, though, is that midfielder Marco Verratti has won his race to be fit after overcoming a sprained ankle and a thigh issue to play for an hour against Bordeaux to prove his fitness ahead of Old Trafford.

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

It maintained their incredible run under caretaker boss Solskjaer with the Norwegian presiding over ten wins in his eleven games in charge.
