United have been handed a huge boost ahead of their crunch European tie with PSG, with talisman Edinson Cavani set to sit out through injury.

"I think we have to improve in terms of mentality, attitude and the spirit of sacrifice for the team". I think that the news will not be very good.

Paris Saint-Germain have to improve their attitude if they are to beat Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League, Gianluigi Buffon has warned.

PSG will also be missing Brazil striker, Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury.

"It's very hard if we play with our best team, it's a big challenge". We have to wait a little bit more, but the club will communicate on this later today. Italian midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the starting XI after several weeks out with ankle troubles, and played just short of one hour before being substituted.

Speaking after the game, PSG coach, Tuchel told reporters: "Not good news".

This will be music to the ears of Manchester United as the side has been in good form in the recent past. We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D!

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions".

"On Tuesday, a very important game is waiting for us", he said, per Goal.

The Uruguay forward has scored 21 in 25 appearances this season - only Kylian Mbappé has managed more in Ligue 1 - and if he is ruled out Tuchel will be hugely reliant on the France worldwide to carry the mantle against United.

Meunier has suffered concussion and will be examined again at the end of this week before he can return to action.

"Verratti can play and will play", said the German coach.
