Confident United will be a tough challenge - Tuchel

Uruguay striker Cavani, who has scored 192 goals for PSG, sustained a hip muscle injury in Saturday's 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Girondins de Bordeaux adding to the side's injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg.

PSG: No Neymar makes things incredibly tough, but when you considered that Cavani may also miss the match due to injury, you have to wonder if the scales are even balanced in this tie.

Players are responding to the 45-year-old's attacking tactics, and not much are performing better than Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.

"We have our identity and it's not easy to change a team's identity".

As Paris, we're used to playing offensively and creating chances. "We're here to score, maybe more than one".

"We miss two key attacking players, but to change our identity for that?.I don't know if it's the moment. We are really happy to have him [Solskjaer] here and we hope we can continue [together], but the final decision isn't with us". "I'm anxious because we are missing key players".

"I said to the boys, if we keep working every day in training, we can improve and maybe surprise a few", Solskjaer said. "Everyone should be ready to watch the match because it's one everyone wants to see".

" To change that is really hard but I'm sure there will be times where we will defend deeply". "I am a different player to Neymar, and we will certainly miss him".

But, like so many others, compatriot Paul Pogba included, Martial has been liberated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and there is finally hope that the 23-year-old is playing for a manager, and in a system, that can help him to realise the full extent of his vast potential. It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there.

"I have found out what kind of team we have, we are looking like a team, we are agreeing on how we should approach games.

Obviously, there is an effect", the former Borussia Dortmund boss said. We have a second leg in Paris, and we feel very strong and comfortable at Parc des Princes.

"This makes you understand how unusual it is and how certain balances can swap around in the Champions League".
