Champions League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 05/03/2019

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani set to miss second leg UEFA Champions League against Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Red Devils, who are suffering from an injury crisis of their own, will need all the help they can get as they attempt to recover from the 2-0 defeat to Ligue 1 holder at Old Trafford in the first leg fixture three weeks ago.

According to TF1 reports claims that Cavani who injured his hip during league clash with Bordeaux on 9 February and Uruguay international was due back in training on Monday but is still not expected to start for the French champions as he looks to regain full fitness.

The 32-year-old striker could be on the bench as PSG keen on defending the two away goals scored a fortnight ago by Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe.

Cavani, PSG's all-time leading goalscorer, has found the net 17 times in 16 Ligue 1 appearances while notching a further two goals in the Champions League this season.
