As such, the injuries to the PSG duo should give them a handy advantage when they host Thomas Tuchel's men in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday night.
"We have to rethink everything for Manchester United when players like that get hurt".
As for Cavani, Tuchel addressed his injury on Saturday evening, stating: "He told me he picked up the injury when he took the penalty".
Neymar is ruled out with a broken metatarsal and it looks as though PSG will be without their first choice striker Edinson Cavani too, after he was subbed off at half-time during Saturday's game against Bordeaux.
"No [we are not favourites], I think we are tied, it's 50/50".
"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions. We do not have another Edi, we do not have another Neymar".
"It's super hard. If we miss several players the challenge will be even bigger". Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes. "He brings quality, as we could see today".
"On Tuesday, a very important game is waiting for us".
"Normally, it's very hard to play so soon when you have been injured as Marco has".
However, after the game, Thomas Tuchel admitted that the 31-year-old suffered a muscle injury, though the severity is something that is unknown at the current time. But they will still feel the absence of Neymar and Cavani - if the latter can't play. We have to decide tomorrow [Sunday] about that. We must wait for the results.
"But, obviously I already know Marco's opinion".
