Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed they will nearly certainly be without striker Edinson Cavani for Tuesday's Champions League round of 16 first leg away at Manchester United, while right-back Thomas Meunier has also been ruled out.

Tuchel said (as reported by Sky Sports): "Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa both trained without problems".

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.

"No [we are not favourites], I think we are tied, it's 50/50."
Yes, it is worrying. "We have already lost Ney", Tuchel added. In any case, we must wait.

"My feeling is that it's going to be very hard for him to play". "But we're ready for Manchester and I have faith in my players".

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi".

PSG are now 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 but their win over Bordeaux came after their toughest week of the season.

"On Tuesday, a very important game is waiting for us", he said, per Goal. The Uruguay forward has scored 21 in 25 appearances this season - only Kylian Mbappé has managed more in Ligue 1 - and if he is ruled out Tuchel will be hugely reliant on the France worldwide to carry the mantle against United. Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes.
