There is only a slight chance that Edinson Cavani can play at Old Trafford against Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday, Paris St Germain coach Thomas Tuchel said on Sunday.

Uruguay striker Cavani sustained a thigh injury in Saturday's 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Girondins de Bordeaux adding to PSG's injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg against a resurgent United side.

PSG are already without Neymar, who was ruled out with a foot injury, leaving the French side with only Kylian Mbappe as a world class striking option.

"The club will issue a statement later during the day. In my opinion, the news will not be good," Tuchel told French TV channel TF1.

"There is a glimmer of hope. We always hope, but the first exam was not good."

Cavani picked up the injury at the end of the first half and he limped off the pitch holding his right thigh shortly after scoring the only goal with a penalty.
