PARIS (Reuters) - Paris St Germain will be without injured striker Edinson Cavani when they take on Anderlecht in the Champions League on Tuesday, the French champions said in a statement on Monday.
However, forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and center back Thiago Silva were cleared to play in the Group C match at the Parc des Princes after being included in the squad.
Cavani has been ruled out after failing to recover from a thigh injury he picked up in Friday's 4-0 home victory in Ligue 1 against Lorient.
Ibrahimovic, who scored four times in a 5-0 win at Anderlecht two weeks ago, also had thigh trouble but coach Laurent Blanc earlier told a news conference that "it was not a serious injury".
Thiago Silva had been sidelined with a thigh injury for six weeks.
PSG have a maximum nine points from three games in Group C.
