PSG coach fearful of Champions League tie with Manchester United

PSG coach fearful of Champions League tie with Manchester United”

Thomas Tuchel has given a blunt assessment of Paris Saint-Germain's injury crisis ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United next week.

It's be hard for this game to come at a worse time for United, who have endured some horrendous form in the opening few games of the season, the low point coming in their 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur just before the worldwide break.

Neymar hit a hat trick in his country's 4-2 victory in Peru to take him second behind Pele in Brazil's all-time scoring charts.

But Nimes had too little to offer and PSG, despite being without the suspended Marquinhos and Angel Di Maria, as well as the injured Marco Verratti and Juan Bernat, ultimately counted on their superiority.

Ander Herrera, who tested positive for coronavirus, is in isolation so too the new signing Danilo Pereira.

However, Rafinha is available following his arrival from Barcelona.

"I know he'll be able to adapt quickly and of course he'll be able to play".

Nimes, who is 13th with eight points, was reduced to 10 men after 12 minutes when Loick Landre was put on the red card.

Around 5,000 fans will attend the game in Nimes, which does not feature in the French government's list of cities included in a curfew.

The limitations announced by the French president Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday night mean that Marseille's home game with Bordeaux on Saturday and the derby between Lille and Lens on Sunday, will be behind closed doors.

Capped 15 times by France, Ben Arfa has blown hot and cold throughout his career: a fabulous talent as a youngster at Lyon, he showed flashes of genius in England with Newcastle United and had a wonderful year at Nice in 2015/16.

He enjoyed a fine debut, providing one assist for Kylian Mbappe and Spaniard Pablo Sarabia provided another for the superstar as he scored the first and third goals. However he is now set to be out for several months after suffering a serious knee injury.
