Cavani forced off with early injury for PSG

The Uruguay striker was replaced by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting after he went down whilst running through on goal as he sought to break the deadlock

Edinson Cavani was withdrawn just 11 minutes into Paris Saint Germain’s Ligue 1 game against Toulouse on Sunday after pulling up with an injured right adductor.

The Uruguay striker was replaced by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting after he went down whilst running through on goal as he sought to break the deadlock.

And the Cameroon international gave the hosts the lead shortly after half time, an advantage that was added to by an own goal from Mathieu Goncalves minutes later.

Choupo-Moting added a second and Marquinhos also scored in a 4-0 win for the French champions.

PSG, who also lost Abdou Diallo in the first half to a clash of heads and Kylian Mbappe to a thigh injury , are looking to shock their season into life after their surprise 2-1 defeat to league leaders Rennes last time out.

At the Parc des Princes, Idrissa Gueye made his long-awaited debut for the champions after his summer move from Everton.

The midfielder joined PSG from the Toffees for a fee of £30 million ($37m) after the Premier League side failed to sanction the move in January.

Meanwhile, Neymar was once more overlooked by coach Thomas Tuchel, who left the Brazilian out of his squad altogether to face Toulouse.

The Brazilian forward is yet to appear for his club in the 2019-20 season, after incurring an injury prior to the Copa America and reporting back late for pre-season training in July. 

With just over a week to go before the transfer window closes in Europe the coach is not willing to disrupt his side by calling up the forward, who remains in the middle of a tug of war between Real Madrid and Barcelona, while PSG hold out for a deal that reflects their valuation of his services. 

“Neymar can play if the situation between him and the club is clear tomorrow,” Tuchel told a press conference on Saturday.

“He is ready to play, but today the situation is not clear, maybe it will be tomorrow.

“The Neymar situation is unsettling, it helps nobody.

“Everyone is used to this sort of situation surrounding Neymar. The same thing happened when he was injured. It is normal with the biggest stars.”
