PARIS – The fitness of Paris St Germain forward Mauro Icardi is still in doubt for the Champions League clash with Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, who had expected to be fit for the game at the Parc des Princes, has been ruled out injured along with France forward Kylian Mbappe. Brazilian Neymar is suspended.
Icardi, PSG's latest recruit, could start up front but coach Thomas Tuchel is unsure about his condition as the Argentine only played half an hour in Ligue 1 last weekend.
"I don't know exactly how fit he is," Tuchel told a news conference on Tuesday.
"I don't know how long he can play, maybe he should start or maybe Eric Choupo-Moting can start. Everybody knows we miss a few strikers but I trust the players I have for this game."
