Manchester United travel to France hoping to replicate the impressive 3-1 victory over PSG in March 2019, which sent them through to the quarterfinals.
Highly regarded as one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s best results as United coach, this dreamy encounter promises to be a hotly-contested affair.
The Red Devils bounced back from their Spurs humiliation with a 4-1 win at Newcastle United on Saturday, making it 13 goals and four wins from four on their travels so far this season – a far cry from their struggles at home.
PSG have only ever lost seven of their 53 home Champions League games and have not conceded a goal in four successive such wins since Man United last visited.
