European round-up: Edinson Cavani doubtful for Manchester United tie

Good News for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain suffer possible double injury blow ahead of Champions League clash

Cavani scored from the spot just before the half-time whistle but appeared to injure himself in taking the penalty, with coach Thomas Tuchel taking no chances and substituting the striker.

With Neymar already ruled out with a broke metatarsal, the French champions were banking on the likes of star striker Edinson Cavani to step up to the plate.

Losing Cavani, who is PSG's all-time leading scorer and has netted 22 times this season, would be another huge blow to the French champions ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last 16, first leg at Old Trafford. But they will still feel the absence of Neymar and Cavani - if the latter can't play. Yes, it is worrying. "Yes, there has been a lot of bad luck - we do not have a second Edi, or Neymar". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to play, ' said manager Thomas Tuchel after the tie. We must wait. I didn't see him or talk to the doctor.

"If he comes off, obviously I am anxious".

James chose Kevin Durant with the No. 1 overall pick, as he did past year in the All-Star draft, to be one of his starters . James uncomfortably explains that "tampering rules [do] not apply on All-Star Weekend", which doesn't sound right.

The Uruguay worldwide is undergoing tests on Sunday to determine whether or not he will be ready for the Champions League last-16 trip to Old Trafford.

Gianluigi Buffon was not happy with Paris Saint-Germain's display against Bordeaux and is demanding more against Manchester United. Without "Ney", maybe without Marco, maybe without "Edi". "They need to know how to control and handle the pressure, but without two or three of them, it is up to us to come up with solutions".

"A very important game is waiting for us on Tuesday". Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes.

However, fast-forward a couple of months and add Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into the mix, some may even label United as "dark horses" to win the whole competition.
