Cavani injury mars victory, Paris Saint-Germain got back to winning ways in Ligue 1 with victory over Bordeaux, but lost Edinson Cavani to injury at half-time.
Edinson Cavani gave Paris Saint-Germain an injury scare ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United despite scoring in Saturday‚Äôs 1-0 victory over Bordeaux.
Unlike Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler and Kylian Mbappe, Cavani started at the Parc des Princes but he only lasted 45 minutes before hobbling off.
His departure came moments after he converted a first-half penalty following Nicolas de Preville‚Äôs clumsy challenge on the marauding Thomas Meunier.
The loss of Cavani seemed to affect PSG after the restart as they struggled to re-assert their dominance, Gianluigi Buffon needing to make a number of saves to ensure their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 grew to 13 points.
