PSG set to lose number of key players for Man Utd clash

PSG will be without Mauro Icardi for next week's Champions League group stage clash with Manchester United.

The Argentine has injured his knee and will miss this weekend's visit to Nimes as well as the meeting with United on Tuesday.

"We have a bit of bad luck with players," said Tuchel at a press conference Thursday.

"Mauro Icardi was injured Wednesday last week, an internal ligament of the knee. It is not too serious but he has not done any training and he will be missing against Nimes and of course against Manchester (United)."

Marco Verratti, Marquinhos and Julian Draxler also won't play against Nimes and are considered doubtful for the United clash.
