Edinson Cavani will not make his Manchester United debut against former club PSG tonight.

The Uruguayan striker joined United on a free transfer this autumn after he was released by Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the year.

Cavani has been isolating but trained this weekend ahead of the meeting with his old club in the Champions League.

However the 33-year-old won’t be involved due to a lack of match fitness, and will instead aim for a debut against Chelsea this weekend.

Here is everything you need to know:

When is the match?

PSG vs Manchester United kicks off at 8pm BST at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

How to watch on TV and online

The game will be shown live on BT Sport 2 in the UK, and can streamed online via the BT Sport website and the BT Sport app for paying customers.

Team news

Manchester United do not have Edinson Cavani available for selection against his former club. Mason Greenwood misses out through fitness issues, but Anthony Martial returns to the setup after missing the league game at Newcastle through suspension.

PSG are without Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes through injury, although Marquinhos and Julian Draxler are back in contention following their recent layoffs.

Confirmed line-ups

PSG XI vs Man United: Keylor Navas; Florenzi, Diallo, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Gueye, Danilo Pereira, Ander Herrera; Di María, Mbappé, Neymar

Man United XI vs PSG: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Shaw, Telles, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial

Odds

PSG 11/18

Draw 4/1

Man Utd 5/1

Prediction

Both sides come into the game with a spring in their step following the weekend. It should be a good contest but PSG have home advantage and the edge in quality with Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe, and I expect them to get the job done tonight. PSG 3-1 Manchester United.
