Man Utd v PSG tips: No Neymar, no chance for PSG?
Here we go. The Champions League finally returns tonight. And we’re in for a cracker as Manchester United take on Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG were clear favourites for this tie when the last-16 draw was made back in December. But things can change very quickly in football.
The visitors have been weakened by injuries to key players. And United have turned their season around since replacing Jose Mourinho with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Who’ll gain a first-leg advantage here?
With Neymar and Edinson Cavani set to miss out for PSG, our traders make the hosts 5/4 favourites.
PSG may be without two of their biggest stars, but Kylian Mbappe can still cause problems for any side.
Marco Verratti will also be key to their gameplan after recovering from injury. PSG like to control the ball and dictate proceedings. However, that could play into United’s hands.
Since Solskjaer took charge, they’ve been looking to break at lightning speed. And with a front trio of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, the Red Devils can be devastating on the break.
Marquinhos will also need to be at his best to contain Paul Pogba in the World Cup winner’s current form.
Angel Di Maria will want to make his mark against his former side too. We go 9/4 that he gets on the scoresheet.
Martial could be also be one to watch after starring against Fulham at the weekend. He’s rated 7/4 to nab a goal.
