Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer comes into this game knowing a point will be enough to secure a place in the Champions League knockout stages whilst anything but three points for the visitors on Wednesday night will be a huge blow to their chances of making it out of Group H.

United currently top the group on nine points with tomorrow’s opponents sitting in third position following back to back wins against the other two sides in the group.

These two sides met on match day one of this season’s campaign, with a late solo effort from Marcus Rashford ensuring the Red Devils took all three points back to Manchester.  The last time this fixture played out however, goals from Kylian Mbappe and Presnel Kimpembe gave Thomas Tuchel’s men a 2-0 advantage to take back to Paris in March of 2019, which Solskjaer’s men historically cancelled out in the second leg.

The home side will be coming into this crucial tie off the back of four straight wins in all competitions whilst PSG have only managed two wins in the same number of games which includes a 2-2 draw against 13th placed Bordeaux at the weekend.

Team News

Edinson Cavani is set to make an appearance against his former side whilst Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are all still unavailable, despite training on Monday.

PSG will be without four first team players for this tie with Mauro Icardi and Pablo Sarabia joining Julian Draxler and Juan Bernat as players not travelling with the rest of the squad.
