The Champions League returns to action this mid-week, and to start the round of 16, we see a resurgent Manchester United host Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, kicking off at 8:00pm local time.

Home Team: Manchester United

On December 17th, the Champions League round of 16 draw was made, just one day after Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United had just lost to Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield. After drawing PSG, Manchester United fans would have been fearing this match, and would have no confidence about their team’s chances of progressing. However, the day after Jose Mourinho was sacked, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been brought in and lifted the mood around Old Trafford significantly. 10 wins from 11, with one draw, improved goals per game ratio, a more assured defence, players performing to maximum potential and it appears that the honeymoon period looks to continue even further.

Injuries for PSG aside, Manchester United will feel confident about this tie, and they’ll know they need a near perfect performance at home to progress into the quarter finals. Paul Pogba is the man in form for Manchester, as he has created or scored 13 goals in his last 8 Premier League matches. Manchester United have no injury issues, as they come into this match at the perfect time. It’s been a huge turn-around in the last 8 weeks, but can they go one-step further?

Away Team: Paris Saint-Germain

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel, fans and the players thought that this tie would have been a walk-over once the draw was made, but now it looks to be a stern test. To make matters worse, Neymar is injured for both legs, and it appears Edison Cavani will miss at least the first leg. The PSG fans will be cursing their luck, as they have the squad to contest this competition as they look to win it. However, whether it’s bad injuries, or bad draws, they always seem to come up short. PSG recently lost to Lyon in the league, their first league defeat of the season, and only narrowly beat Bordeaux 1-0 at home.

PSG usually score at least 2+ goals in all of their home matches, so even that is unconvincing. With Neymar and Cavani out, PSG will rely on French superstar Kylian Mbappe and former Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria. PSG have the home advantage in the second leg, so they’ll hope they can get a positive result to take back to Paris in three weeks’ time, when their injury list shortens. PSG have been knocked out at the last 16 round in the last two years, but surely, they cannot exit this early again?

Head to Head

The sides have never met each other in a competitive match. PSG did win a friendly 2-0 a few years ago, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the score sheet.

Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football Manchester United are slight favourites to get a win in the first leg, being priced at 13/10 PSG are at 19/10 with a draw at 5/2. Over the two legs, PSG are favourites at 4/7 with Manchester United at 5/4. It’s a close content to call, but for this first leg, I’d back Manchester United to win, but for PSG to advance over the two legs. PSG have a lot of attacking threat, so I don’t believe Manchester United will keep a clean sheet, so my score prediction is 2-1 to the hosts at 17/2. Adding Marcus Rashford to score first, would boost the odds up to 33/1 in a scorecast.

  Paul Pogba has scored a brace in a few of Manchester United’s recent matches, and if he can produce a world-class performance here, you wouldn’t back against him not achieving that again against his home team – that is priced at 8/1. Finally, let’s hope both sides play attractive and attacking football, and we see plenty of goals in the process – more than 3.5 goals is at 13/8.
