Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Sport - Reuters

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.
