The 11th emergency of the PSG before a United unleashed

Tuchel looks for a "plan D" to dodge the losses in attack in the first leg of the Champions League. Alves could be a midfielder.


Paris Saint Germain seems gafado in the maximum continental competition despite having spent years attempting asaltar the Champions League with large economic disbursements to put the club at the level of the giants of Europe.

Tras two years of bitter flavors because of Barcelona and the Real Madrid now seems to be in danger the quarterfinals because of injuries. Neymar is ruled out due to another injury in the fifth metatarsal and last night all the alarms in Paris jumped to see that Cavani did not jump to the grass after the break of the match against Girondins. There is no official part of the club, but everything points to a muscular injury and in the next few hours will be examined by the medical services of the club. But the head of Tuchel already begins to twist the problem that can be raised on Tuesday in the first leg of the round of 16. "Without Neymar and maybe without Cavani or Verratti, we will have to think of a plan D," he said after winning by the minimum.

With the Italian perhaps he exaggerated something. The Pescara played yesterday 60 minutes after an injury that has kept him off the field since mid-January and in theory should be able to face United. The Uruguayan looks worse, although they trust that everything was a warning.

If Cavani joins the casualty list, Tuchel will have to solve a sudoku to challenge a United packed with eight wins in nine games Premier League since Solskjaer took over at the end of December. Mpeppé could be the spearhead in Old Trafford and Di Maria, in the right, and Draxler, in the left, would wrap him in the bands.

The patches do not finish in the attack since Tuchel will have to risk in the middle of the field and in France predict a medulla with Verratti, fresh from injury, accompanied by Marquinhos, which will try to nullify an unstoppable Pogba, and with Dani Alves reconverted into a midfielder at 35 years. It will be necessary to see if his legs endure a battle of that size. The other option is Leandro Paredes, but it can be a lot of pressure for a footballer who has been in the club for a couple of weeks.

In the defensive line, fewer doubts arise and it is normal for Tuchel to bet for Bernat and Kehrer in the bands and for Thiago Silva and Kimpembe in the central zone. The goal will surely be for Buffon.
