Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has overseen back-to-back wins against PSG and must simply avoid defeat to book his side’s ticket in the round-of-16, but Thomas Tuchel has previous in the North West, famously masterminding an emphatic 2-0 win in the 2018/19 round-of-16 first leg, before capitulating in Paris.
His side came unstuck in the reverse fixture on matchday one this term, falling to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford at the Parc des Princes, but the Parisians have lost just one of their previous seven games on the road in this competition, and that came against RB Leipzig earlier this month.
Old Trafford has been anything but a fortress for Man Utd this term, but Solskjaer’s men have responded in excellent fashion to the shock 2-1 loss in Istanbul, winning each of their last four matches across all competitions, which will give them some much-needed momentum heading into this crunch clash.
Head to Head
- 20 October 2020 – PSG 1-2 Manchester United – Champions League
- 06 Mar 2019 – PSG 1-3 Manchester United – Champions League
- 12 Feb 2019 – Manchester United 0-2 PSG – Champions League
All three encounters between these sides have gone in favour of the away team, but Man Utd will be hoping to buck that trend on Wednesday night. In the round-of-16 first leg clash in 2018/19, PSG cruised to a resounding 2-0 win, with goals coming from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe. Tuchel could do with a similar performance later this week.
PICK: Over 2.5 Goals
