Mauro Icardi - Paris Saint-Germain

Injury worries PSG increase as two stars will miss clash with Man United

Paris Saint-Germain will be without two more players for their Champions League clash with Manchester United on Tuesday. Marco Verratti and Mauro Icardi have joined the long list with absentees for the match, increasing the pressure on PSG boss Thomas Tuchel. The German coach will have to complete a massive puzzle to field a quality team against United this week.

Verratti picked up a thigh injury while on international duty with Italy, while Icardi is still coming back from a knee injury he suffered earlier in the season. The two players are joined by Thilo Kehrer, who has been out for several weeks and has been officially ruled out of the match in the Champions League. Neymar is expected to play, though the Brazilian was forced to sit out PSG’s game against Nimes during the weekend.

Meanwhile, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a fit squad to face the Parisians on Tuesday. Mason Greenwood is expected to return to the team after the English striker missed United’s trip to Newcastle United on Saturday (4-1 win) due to a minor injury. New signing Edinson Cavani was spotted at training on Sunday and the Uruguayan could make his debut for United against his former club.
