Neymar has been ruled out until April with a metatarsal injury and striker Edinson Cavani, who has scored 22 goals this season, is a huge doubt after PSG confirmed that he sustained an injury to his right thigh against Bordeaux.

"No [we are not favourites], I think we are tied, it's 50/50."

PSG visit Old Trafford on Tuesday for the first leg of their encounter in the round-of-16, the stage at which the French champions went out in the last two seasons. Not everyone can play at that level in the Champions League. In any case, we must wait.

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.

"We have to rethink everything for Manchester United when players like that get hurt". 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.

"There is no good news this morning", coach Thomas Tuchel said in an interview with TF1 this Sunday. "We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar", Tuchel added.

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi".

"It is super hard, and if we are missing several players, the challenge is even greater". "But we're ready for Manchester and I have faith in my players".

Such is their margin for error domestically that Tuchel could afford to wrap a host of key players in cotton wool with the Champions League in mind.

Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier is also out of the first leg, with PSG confirming he suffered a concussion during Saturday's match.

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