The Uruguay striker left the pitch on the stroke of half-time holding his thigh, just after opening the scoring with a penalty in the 42nd minute.

When Manchester United were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League's round of 16, the reaction was one of panic among United fans, while supports of rival clubs indulged in some schadenfreude.

Thomas Tuchel opted to substitute the goalscorer rather than risk further injury, as the PSG boss prepares to take his side to Manchester on Tuesday. I don't have good news, ' said Tuchel.

With Edinson Cavani picking up an injury against Bordeaux, the FC panel examine how PSG would line up if he's ruled out against Manchester United.

The was some good news for PSG as midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the line-up after recovering from an ankle injury.

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi". Thomas Tuchel confirmed at the post-match presser that there was indeed a muscle tear, but then we await the seriousness of the injury.

'I honestly don't know if Cavani will play. It's very hard if we play with our best team, it's a big challenge.

"I think we need to improve in terms of the mentality, the attitude and the spirit of sacrifice for the team", he told reporters. We will wait for training on Friday to see if they will play on Saturday.

While Tuchel needs Verratti against a United midfield featuring the in-form Paul Pogba, the 58 minutes he played may not be enough to get his rhythm back in time to face a revitalized United.
