Neymar is ruled out with a broken metatarsal and it looks as though PSG will be without their first choice striker Edinson Cavani too, after he was subbed off at half-time during Saturday's game against Bordeaux. "I'm anxious because we are missing key players".

Coach Thomas Tuchel will be concerned whether Cavani, who clutched his right leg before going off, will be fit for Tuesday's trip to Old Trafford in the first leg of the last 16.

The reigning French champions are already without the world's most expensive player Neymar, who is battling for fitness after a re-occurrence of a foot injury which plagued him last season. Italian midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the starting XI after several weeks out with ankle troubles, and played just short of one hour before being substituted. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester.

Speaking after the game, PSG coach, Tuchel told reporters: "Not good news. We have to wait for Marco's opinion". Thomas Tuchel confirmed at the post-match presser that there was indeed a muscle tear, but then we await the seriousness of the injury.

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

Such is their margin for error domestically that Tuchel could afford to wrap a host of key players in cotton wool with the Champions League in mind. Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes.

Cavani is joined by Meunier in missing the Old Trafford leg after neurological tests revealed light concussion after a heavy collision with Bordeaux's Francois Kamano during Saturday's encounter and PSG added that the Belgium global will be unavailable until at least the end of next week.
