Injured Cavani out of Man United tie
PARIS: Edinson Cavani has been ruled out of Paris St Germain’s Champions League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday, French sports daily L’Equipe reported.
PSG said that Uruguay striker Cavani had sustained a hip muscle injury in Saturday’s 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Girondins de Bordeaux adding to the side’s injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg against a resurgent United side.
PSG are already without Neymar, who was ruled out with a foot injury, leaving the French side with only Kylian Mbappe as a top striking option. “The treatment and the length of Cavani’s absence will depend on the evolution (of the injury) in the coming days,” PSG said.
