Paris Saint-Germain have suffered a blow ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United.
Last season's beaten finalists will welcome the Premier League giants to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night for their opening Group H match.
United got the better of the Parisians the last time they met, winning the second leg of their 2018-19 last-16 tie 3-1 to reach the quarter-finals.
PSG chief Thomas Tuchel will be looking for his troops to exact revenge on the Red Devils, who have endured a poor start to their new domestic season.
The German, however, won't be able to call on the services of Leandro Paredes or Marco Veratti for the visit of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
Parades and Verratti, 26 and 27 respectively, will miss tomorrow's match with thigh injuries.
PSG have, however, been boosted by the news that Marquinhos and Julian Draxler will be available for the match

"For the team, Marquinhos and Julian Draxler are expecting to start practise with us and we hope they will be able to play with us, other players will be missing like Verratti, Paredes, definitely missing for tomorrow," Tuchel said during his pre-match press conference on Monday
"Our memories against Manchester, obviously we don't have very, very good memories.
"We had a good result at Old Trafford, in the end it wasn't a great outcome for us, but we had a very great run last season for the Champions League and now it's a challenge not to think too much about last season and two seasons ago.
"We have to overcome these difficulties, show what we are able to do now and start this new Champions League with zero points."
