Man United face PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday night. A win for the hosts would take them through to the last 16, while a PSG victory would take the fate of the group down to the final matchday.
Man United will be in a confident mood heading into Wednesday’s match after winning their last four matches in all competitions. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team went into the international break with a 3-1 win over Everton and returned with a 1-0 victory against West Brom. A 4-1 thrashing of Istanbul Basaksehir followed before they then beat Southampton 3-2 at the weekend. Having trailed 2-0 at half time, Bruno Fernandes gave them hope before Edinson Cavani’s brace saw them complete a dramatic comeback to win the match. Man United look set to be without Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard through injury.
PSG have been in patchy form of late with two wins, two defeats and a draw in their last five matches in all competitions. The run started with a 2-1 defeat to RB Leipzig before beating Rennes 3-0 in Ligue 1. They then returned from the international break with a 3-2 loss to Monaco. Thomas Tuchel was then able to guide his team to a 1-0 win over Leipzig in their return Champions League fixture before a 2-2 draw with Bordeaux last time out. Neymar and Moise Kean both got on the scoresheet to put PSG 2-1 up, but they were unable to close the match out after conceding in the 60th minute. PSG are set to be without Marquinhos, Thilo Kehrer, Juan Bernat and Julian Draxler through injury.
Man United have two wins in this fixture compared to PSG’s one victory. United won the previous meeting 2-1 earlier this season. Just as the odds suggest, this should be a close match, with PSG having that extra quality in attack in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Both teams have won all of their away matches in this fixture. With this being potentially such a pivotal game for both teams in the competition, we would be backing goals on this fixture.
