Edinson Cavani

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed that a decision to include striker Edinson Cavani in the team to face Manchester United will be made just before the game scheduled for the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

French champions PSG host Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League last 16th tie with the Parisians leading 2-0 from their first leg clash last month.

Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe scored in the second half to give PSG a foothold in the tie.

PSG will start as overwhelming favorites for the second leg with Manchester United expected to miss as much as 10 players including star player Paul Pogba who was sent off in the first leg.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the game, Tuchel revealed that a decision will be made on Cavani who has returned to training after one month out with a calf injury.

He sustained the injury on February 9 but the Uruguayan international has started training with his teammates.

Tuchel revealed that Cavani has been training and his potential involvement for the Man Utd game will be decided before the clash.

The German tactician also praised in-form Kylian Mbappe before warning his team about complacency.
