Buffon anxious by PSG attitude ahead of Manchester United showdown

Edinson Cavani Ligue 1 PSG nantes 22122018

The Uruguay striker left the pitch on the stroke of half-time holding his thigh, just after opening the scoring with a penalty in the 43rd minute.

Edinson Cavani scored Paris St-Germain's victor against Bordeaux before going off injured to make him a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Manchester United.

Edinson Cavani will sit out the first leg of Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League encounter with Manchester United, French sports daily L'Equipe and the daily Parisien newspaper reported on Sunday, while club coach Thomas Tuchel described his participation as highly unlikely. "He came off after taking the shot, it is a muscle problem", said Tuchel.

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.

It was first confirmed a couple of weeks ago that Neymar would miss the Man United vs PSG encounter due to a foot injury and the Brazilian will also not be available for the return leg.

"I think we have to improve in terms of mentality, attitude and the spirit of sacrifice for the team". Yes, it is worrying. PSG beat Bordeaux 1-0 to increase its lead in the French league to 13 points over second-placed Lille, which plays on Sunday. The sight of the injury worries me. "We have to wait for Marco's opinion". We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D!

"We must analyse Manchester United, and remain calm and confident".

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions".

"Marco Verratti wants to play but he only played 60 minutes once", he said.

However, fast-forward a couple of months and add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into the mix, some may even label United as "dark horses" to win the whole competition.
