Cavani was replaced by Marcus Rashford after the half time break, while Juan Mata came on for Anthony Martial.

 

Speaking to the press on Monday, Solskjaer said the two players have just “minor niggles” but neither are fit enough to make the trip to Germany.

 

Manchester United need a point to ensure qualification for the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, but anything other than that will mean the Red Devils drop down to the Europa League.
