Edinson Cavani injured for PSG just three days before Champions League
EDINSON CAVANI picked up an injury just three days before PSG’s Champions League clash with Man United.
The Uruguayan star, 31, was taken off at half-time of the Ligue 1 champions’ game with Bordeaux with a nasty-looking thigh injury.
Cavani had earlier scored from the spot to give the Paris giants a 1-0 lead, picking up the knock shortly after and now may join Neymar on the sidelines.
The Brazilian superstar is definitely out of the game as he faces ten weeks on the sidelines with foot damage.
Recently, Neymar was seen on crutches at his 27th birthday party in the French capital.
And he arrived to the Parc des Princes earlier today on crutches once again as he high-fived young fans while hopping on one leg.
But now, out of Paris Saint-Germain’s fearsome attacking trio of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, only their youngster star remains.
It is unknown as yet how long Cavani may be out for, if at all – but it seems unlikely he’d gambled midweek.
Man Utd host Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday night in the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie.
