Manchester United return to Champions League action with a trip to face last season’s runners-up on Tuesday night as Paris Saint-Germain welcome Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to the Parc des Princes for their Group H encounter.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s greatest triumph as United manager came at Parc des Princes and heads there on Tuesday needing another win to hold off further questions over his future.
Date, time, and venue
Paris Saint-Germain vs Manchester United is scheduled for an 8 pm BST kick-off on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
The match will be played behind closed doors at Parc des Princes with no fans due to being present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
Alex Telles could make his first start for the club, while fellow summer signing Donny van de Beek is also in line for the XI after a cameo against Newcastle.
Edinson Cavani can make his debut after completing his period of quarantine, and was pictured training at Carrington in United colours on Sunday.
Neymar has been confirmed as fit to start after skipping PSG’s win on Friday night. He will partner Kylian Mbappe upfront.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
These two teams have met just twice before, the most recent match that 3-1 second-leg win for Manchester United in Paris to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
Prediction: PSG 2-0 Manchester United
PSG have too much in attack for most teams, and especially those who look as ropey at the back as United.
This should be fairly straightforward for the hosts.
