Tuchel believes it'll be 'super difficult' for Cavani to face Manchester United

The Champions League round of 16 kicks off on Tuesday with a big one from "The Theatre of Dreams" as red-hot Manchester United hosts a banged-up Paris Saint-Germain squad without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

"We can't just place all of the burden and pressure on him". "Neymar is our key player, one of the best in Europe, but we still have our identity". We're confident and we're looking like a team. We play attacking football, we're PSG, that's what we're used to - to create opportunities, it's in our DNA. Changing now would be hard.

During the speech, Solskjaer tells the United fans: "Next, I want to thank the manager. That said, we are here to score - that is clear".

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is expected to field Kylian Mbappe in a central striker role but has a decision to make regarding his side's formation due to the high-profile absentees. "He has his own qualities, but it is not his job to do what they do".

"We're expecting United to play in the same way they have been playing recently".

"I watched and you could see that PSG can be beaten".

"I don't really know what position I will be playing, but I'm comfortable in lots of positions".

"You can not replace quality players like this, Neymar is one of the key, key players in Europe and we miss him a lot and now we miss a second key player with Edi", Tuchel told reporters on Monday. Hopefully, he gives a good performance.

Gianluigi Buffon has featured in goal for the Ligue 1 side in their Champions League matches so far this season and is sure to do so again at Old Trafford.

"It is hard to compare eliminations", he said.

"Angel is a top player and he is in good form", said Draxler.

After qualifying top of a group that also included Liverpool and Napoli, the Ligue 1 champions were dealt a tough hand in the first knockout stage when drawn against United, albeit much has changed since the teams were paired together at the end of past year.

And the gap could become even bigger when PSG play their two games-in-hand.
