CAVANI CONFIRMED TO BE OUT OF MANCHESTER UNITED GAME

Edinson Cavani will miss the first leg of Paris St-Germain’s Champions League last-16 tie with Manchester United.

The 31-year-old injured a tendon in his hip after scoring a penalty in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Bordeaux.

Fellow forward Neymar has been ruled out of Tuesday’s first leg and the return game on 6 March through injury.

Brazilian forward Neymar suffered a broken metatarsal in a 2-0 French Cup victory over Strasbourg on Wednesday, 23 January and was ruled out for 10 weeks.

This leaves World Cup-winning forward Kylian Mbappe – who replaced Cavani at the weekend – as the only fit member of their first-choice front three.

Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier is also out of the first leg, with PSG confirming he suffered a concussion during Saturday’s match.
