Paris Saint-Germain have been dealt some serious injury blows ahead of their Champions League clash at Manchester United.
The two sides go head-to-head at Old Trafford tonight in the first-leg of their Round of 16 tie.
Both exited Europe’s elite competition at this stage last season and will want to gain the advantage this evening as they strive to reach the quarter-finals.
Surprisingly the two heavyweights have never faced each other in a competitive match but both have been in good form as of late.
