Old Trafford, Manchester

 

Form:

Manchester United: W W D W W

Preview:

A red-hot Manchester United side will welcome French champions Paris Saint-Germain to Old Trafford on Tuesday night in a high voltage UEFA Champions League clash.  

Manchester United have won 10 out of their previous 11 matches in all competitions and have been in scintillating form under new manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer. Last time out, United steam rolled Fulham at Craven Cottage en route to a comfortable 3-0 win in the Premier League on Saturday.   

PSG, on the other hand, head into this match on the back of a 1-0 win against Bordeaux in Ligue 1. The French champions, who are 10 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table, will have to deal with the absences of Edinson Cavani and Neymar through injury for this clash.      

An unpredictable, high-voltage European encounter is to be expected at Old Trafford tonight.  

 

Predicted Lineups:

Manchester United: De Gea; Young, Lindelöf, Jones, Shaw; Herrera, Matić, Pogba; Lingard, Rashford, Martial.

PSG: Buffon; Kehrer, T. Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Verratti, Marquinhos; D. Alves, Draxler, Di Maria; Mbappé.

Strategic Pointers:

  • Manchester United have only kept a single clean sheet in their previous 5 matches at Old Trafford. 
  • Kylian Mbappe will be the chief danger man for the Manchester United backline in the absence of Neymar and Cavani.  
  • Dani Alves, who is listed as a midfielder in Dream11, is expected to be deployed high up the pitch against United.     
  • Players such as Sanchez and Lukaku can make an explosive impact off the bench.
