PSG vs Manchester United
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 6 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Parc Des Princes (Paris).
PSG did a massive job in the first leg played three weeks ago at Old Trafford. They picked up a huge 0-2 victory via goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe. The tie has thus pretty much been closed as Manchester United realistically need a true miracle to annul such deficit and celebrate a shock victor at Parc Des Princes.
The Reds Devils are playing fabulous under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but they failed to bring the impressive domestic form to Europe’s premier competition. On the other hand, United have nothing to lose in this rematch in French capital and it will be their biggest strength coming into it.
Manchester United have the pole position in the battle for the top-four finish in the Premier League after a run of ten wins and two draws with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge. They showed fantastic fighting spirit to come back from behind and see off Southampton 3-2 on the home patch on Saturday afternoon.
The two teams played in each other just twice in the recent history.
PSG clinched two separate 2-0 wins.
The first one came in the summer of 2015 at the International Champions Cup (pre-season tournament), while the second was the first let of this last 16 round tie in the Champions League.
Unlike United who are battling hard to secure another Champions League football via a top-four finish in the Premier League, PSG are dominating the field in the elite class of French football. They are 17 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 standings and also have a game in hand on second-placed Lille.
