Paris Saint Germain vs Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions
Paris Saint-Germain have been Champions League bridesmaids for several seasons since they became extremely rich thanks to the Qatari royal family, although there are signs that the champions of France can land the European crown sooner rather than later.
Thomas Tuchel steered this expensively-assembled team through to the Champions League final last term before a narrow defeat against Bayern Munich and PSG are regarded as one of the outright favourites this time around, with Manchester United heading to the lion’s den on Tuesday night.
Why We’re Predicting PSG Will Be Strong in Champions League
The French side even gave their rivals a headstart to the 2020/21 domestic season after defeats against Lens and Marseille, with the former triumphing against a second-string Paris Saint-Germain team considering the first-team players were enjoying an extended break.
Since those reverses, it has been four wins on the bounce including a 3-0 victory away to Nice and a 6-1 demolition of Angers, with the attacking line-up dripping with talent and that includes Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi.
It takes more than a bunch of goal scorers to make a sterling team and there is plenty of midfield quality in the form of Marco Verratti, Leandro Paredes and Julian Draxler who are likely to be the trio who take to the field against the Red Devils.
Bet Against Manchester United in this Champions League Clash
We don’t like to kick a team when they’re down but Manchester United have shown little indication that they’ll be able to get something out of this Champions League group stage clash based on current form.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer masterminded a last sixteen triumph over the same opponents two seasons ago, although the Red Devils have lost two of their opening three games and we think they’ll be second best in every department here.
The defence looks shaky after conceding three, two and then six against Palace, Brighton and Spurs, so we could be looking at a hefty defeat at the Parc des Princes.
