Edinson Cavani Limps Off Injured in PSG Win vs. Bordeaux”

The French champions will be missing Brazil forward Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury, for the last-16 first-leg clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday. We have a Plan D. "We have to have a great game".

And Tuchel conceded the loss of Cavani, combined with the absence of Neymar, would force him to reevaluate his entire game plan for their biggest match of the season to date - the first leg of their Champions League tie with Manchester United.

"In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing".

"So for us, or me, I am only used to this club challenging for trophies so that is where I see us".

It was a task the 20-year-old had to perform on Saturday evening in the 1-0 win vs Bordeaux, with Cavani coming off injured at half-time just after scoring the only goal of the game.

"Yes, there has been a lot of bad luck - we do not have a second Edi, or Neymar". The game against Manchester United is very close and we will use the time to recover as quickly as possible.

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions". This match is a huge challenge for us and it's always better to play these types of matches with...

"If your key players are not there it's different".

As a result, Mbappe started on the bench while Angel di Maria, Marquinhos, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer and Julian Draxler - all probable starters in midweek - were left out completely.

PSG missed good chances in the first half, with Cavani shooting wide and having another shot brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Benoit Costil.

Mid-table Bordeaux slumped to a fourth straight loss between league and cup, although they almost equalised on the hour when Francois Kamano's shot from 20 yards was superbly saved by Gianluigi Buffon.

European hopefuls Strasbourg lost 2-1 at home to Angers on Saturday, while Amiens beat Caen 1-0 to climb above Monaco and out of the relegation zone.
