Competition – UEFA Champions League | Second Leg, Round of 16
Venue – Parc de Princes, Paris
Date & Time – 7th March | 01:30 AM IST
A weakened Paris Saint Germain was too good for Manchester United at Old Trafford last time. The French team missed the services of two superstars in Neymar and Cavani, who are still out injured. Yet, PSG find themselves in a fairly comfortable position as they prepare to host the Red Devils. Tuchel’s side is, expectedly, flying in the Ligue 1 with the league title almost in the bag. However, the German will be aware that his employers will seek a much better faring in Champions League this season. Knocking out Manchester United will be a step in the right direction for them.
Manchester United, on the other hand, are among 4 teams fighting for the third and fourth spot finish in the premier league. Evidently, the English giants are struggling and the Champions League hasn’t helped them. Solskjaer’s side is on the brink of getting knocked out of the most elite European club competition. Alexis Sanchez’s injury and Paul Pogba’s suspension bring even more bad news for Manchester United. It is safe to say that only a miraculous 90 minutes could take United through to the next stage.
