Manchester United will be without Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial for Tuesday's crucial Champions League game at RB Leipzig, live on RTÉ 2.

After losing 3-1 at home to Paris St Germain last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side head into the final Group H fixture level on nine points with the perennial French champions and Leipzig.

United will qualify for the knockout stages if they avoid defeat in Germany but they will be minus the services of Cavani and Martial after the pair picked up knocks in Saturday’s 3-1 comeback win at West Ham.

"David (De Gea) is back in, Luke (Shaw) is travelling," said Solskjaer, who is also without Fred through suspension.

"Edinson and Anthony, they’ve only minor niggles but they won’t be making the trip."

The pressure is on United but Solskjaer is confident the players will rise to the occasion.

"Knockout games or games like this that mean you can go through or not are big," he said.

"The players are here, they are Manchester United players, because they have qualities that we’ve looked for and I’m sure that tomorrow night will prove that’s the reason why they’re here, they will show it.

"I think the character of the group is getting better and better and we’re looking forward to the game.

"It’s something that we want, games like this. It’s a tradition for Man United – we never make it easy for ourselves.

"Of course we look at the games, especially the away game against Istanbul (Basaksehir) that we could have got three points, but that’s just the way we do things.

"We do make it hard for ourselves. That’s been ever since I played and that’s a long, long time ago."
