Absent Montpellier due to a leg injury, Edinson Cavani returns to the Paris Saint-Germain group for the Galatasaray reception in the Champions League.
After the midweek match against Nantes, Thomas Tuchel was strongly criticized for giving only five minutes to the Uruguayan. Former Borussia Dortmund manager will be aware of his mistake against top scorer in PSG history, and will try to correct the shot during the Champions League match against Galatasaray on Wednesday night at the Park of the Princes. In fact, if his physical condition allows, "Matador" could actually play a good deal of the match as reported at a press conference by Thomas Tuchel on Tuesday.
"He missed Montpellier because he felt something in his leg. A little hurt. He trained with the group just today. It's a shame because he's looking for rhythm. It's also my responsibility, because I don't give him many minutes, but that was the decision to leaving Mauro Icardi and the other attackers on the ground, they were crucial, scored many goals and Edi bombed for many weeks. It wasn't his fault but it was the situation. He is disappointed, of course, he is used to playing every third day, but he is super professional. He works well in the wardrobe. He is always positive. He works to be there when needed. There is still a bit of rhythm, that's the problem. We have to wait for the reaction. tomorrow after training today. If possible, I'll give him a few minutes tomorrow. It's necessary, and he deserved it. " said Thomas Tuchel. It remains to be seen whether Edinson Cavani will start, or whether he will return early enough in the second half.
