Severely weakened by several notable absences, Manchester United head towards Parc des Princes to meet Paris Saint-Germain for the return leg of their Champions League last-16 battle.
The hosts are enjoying a purple patch even though they are deprived of Neymar’s services having racked up an eight-game winning run across all competitions. The Parisians have outplayed Caen on the road in the build-up to this encounter, scoring 2+ match goals for the fourth time in a row. Furthermore, Thomas Tuchel’s players have clinched seven successive home triumphs, bagging 27 goals while allowing just two in the process. Led by the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, the reigning Ligue 1 holders have scored in every single home contest this season, netting over 1.5 goals per match in 16 of 20 home fixtures so far. Although PSG boast a deadly attack force, their main strength at the moment is an outstanding defense that has conceded just two goals in their last eight competitive meetings.
Meanwhile, the visitors are facing a daunting prospect of recovering from a two-goal deficit from the first leg. Although they’ve pulled off a spectacular comeback against Newcastle United earlier this season, repeating that will be quite challenging for the Premier League giants. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men come into this meeting after beating Southampton 3-2 at home having performed a stunning second-half comeback to walk away with all three points. During Solskjaer’s regime, the 7-time Champions League winners have secured eight consecutive away victories, with six of them saw Man Utd beating their rivals with a comfortable two-goal margin. What’s more, the Red Devils have scored 2+ match goals seven times, conceding one goal or less on every single road trip in that period.
