PSG vs Man United : On Tuesday, Ole Gunnar Solskure faced the toughest challenge since taking responsibility for Manchester United. when his side player took Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the first round of the Champions League playoffs.
The French champions act like favorites, though the injuries of Neymar and Edinson Cavani will give United some hope that it is unlikely that they can win an unlikely victory in the return game at the Parc des Princes.
Paris Saint-Germain suffered another blow in the run up to the Champions League showdown in the last 16 games against Manchester United with the news that Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier will miss the game.
The Uruguayan forward lost PSG’s victory with a 1: 0 scoreline over Bordeaux with the hip problem after scoring the only goal in the Ligue 1 game.
Although this year in the Champions League one of the strongest teams in Europe was eliminated during this stage in the Champions League, the PSG was excluded from the tournament. However, in recent years, States has worsened even more. Neither since 2014, nor in the dark days of David Moyes, the Reds managed to reach the last eight of the Champions League. Hopefully good luck this time.
Since then, the French champions have qualified the 31-year-old and decided he could not make the trip to Manchester.
“Studies have revealed damage to the tendon in the right thigh,” the club said in a statement. “The treatment and the duration of the inaccessibility will depend on the recovery in the next few days.”
The absence of Cavani, who has 21 goals in 25 matches in all competitions this season, was a big blow for the leaders of League 1. Tuhele’s team already without Brazilian striker Neymar, who since January came out of a bone broken metatarsal, while Marco Verratti also doubts.
Cavani was replaced by Kilian Mbappa in the Bordeaux match and will return to his place in the XI starter in the Champions League.
Since the two members of his stellar trio are missing, Tuchel is concerned that they have to change their meeting strategy with Ole Gunnar Solskyer’s team.
As a general rule, my opinion is clear: to play against Manchester United, to play against Liverpool or even against the Red Star in Belgrade, you need key, confident, experienced and high quality players who are used to playing like that game. the game I used to play big, pressure-filled games that used to handle the pressure. “
Meunier will also skip the match midway through the week after it was confirmed that he suffered a concussion during the game against Bordeaux, and that he will be reassessed next week.
