PSG Look to Unpredictable Cavani for Goals at Basel — Champions League

"He is a versatile forward, he's the number nine we need", PSG fullback Thomas Meunier said after Cavani netted the only goal in a 1-0 Ligue 1 win at Lille last Friday despite only two of his six goal attempts finding the target.

"For me, it's better that he stays in Paris to treat his ankle". will not be responsible for any defamatory message posted under this article.

Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi, as a trio, are not the force to be reckoned with that they once were.

The Uruguay international has cut a frustrated figure at regular intervals during his three-year stint at the Parc des Princes, most notably over a lack of playing time in his preferred central striking role while having to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Basel have been beaten convincingly by Arsenal and PSG, when the French champions ran out as 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture. "I have seen him in previous years".

"Don't forget the France national team. He is working hard and PSG recognise that". "We're on the right path", he said. "He is progressing, becoming a man and embracing his responsibilities on the pitch - even at difficult moments".

Marquinhos is adamant his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Edinson Cavani is being criticised unfairly.

"We do not know what they will create at home against Arsenal and what happens when you win".

For Basel's opponents PSG, dominating domestic matters to the point where European competition becomes the obsession, is a familiar story, but this season has seen a change in their narrative.

Let's hope it's not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
