Paris Saint Germain will have to wait with bated breath after Edison Cavani had to come off injured with suspected thigh injury after scoring the winner against Bordeaux in the Ligue 1 match at the Parc des Princes.
Thomas Tuchel after the victory against Bordeaux 1-0 : “No, I do not have good news. We have to wait. Tuesday (in the Champions League against Manchester United),
“I do not know honestly (if Cavani will play). Yes, it’s worrying, it’s not a good sign. If your key players are not there, it’s different. We do not have a second Edi (Cavani), we do not have a second Neymar … ” He told Canal + via L’Equipe.

“There are many plans B. Without Ney (Neymar), maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi. We have a plan D. We have to analyze Manchester, stay confident and calm.
” For matches like this, you need your key players with confidence, experience and quality. They are used to playing these big matches.
“But if two or three key players are not there, it’s our responsibility to find solutions. It’s super difficult. If we miss several players, the challenge is even bigger. Tuesday, we will be ready. “
Gianluigi Buffon wasn’t pleased on the performance and urged his side to have a better mentality against Manchester United in the champions league:
“Apart from the result, I did not like the game. I think we need to improve in terms of mentality, in terms of the spirit of sacrifice.
“Tuesday, a very important match awaits us. We will have to deliver great service. Against such a team (Manchester United), you have to be stronger, stronger and have a different attitude. It’s a necessity.
