We extend the global invertibility result by Henao, Mora-Corral and Oliva (2021) to a class of orientation preserving Orlicz-Sobolev maps with an integrability just above $n-1$, whose traces on the boundary are also Orlicz-Sobolev and which do not present cavitation in the interior or at the boundary. As an application, we prove the existence of a.e. injective minimizers within this class for functionals in nonlinear elasticity.
