UCL: David Luiz doubtful for PSG's game at Shakhtar

Brazil centre back David Luiz is doubtful for Paris St Germain`s Champions League Group A game at Shakhtar Donetsk, coach Laurent Blanc said on Tuesday.

"We rested him at Nantes (in Ligue 1 last Saturday) because he has some pain in his knee, and it`s difficult to nurse," Blanc told a news conference ahead of Wednesday`s match, which will be played in Lviv.

"It`s not serious but it`s been bothering him a little. I`ll make a decision after today`s training session."

Blanc added that he was also waiting for the last moment to decide whether fullback Gregory van der Wiel, who has been hampered by a hip problem, would be ruled out.

PSG won their first game in Group A, beating Malmo 2-0 at the Parc des Princes. They will take on group favourites Real Madrid at home on Oct. 21.
