PSG v Manchester United Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

PSG are in pole position as they host the return leg in the Champions League with United having up to ten players including Paul Pogba unavailable for the tie. PSG made the first leg a game full of action and were the far superior outfit. Not saying United should throw the towel in, but without a lot of key stars could make this game a fixture they should attempt to keep the score line respectable.

Despite the circumstances, Betfred are best priced 8/15 to win the match and taking into account that United need to match the 2-0 deficit without conceding will only make the task more difficult.

Team News

Thomas Tuchel’s will have a few absences including Cavani and Neymar, but must bare in mind that he has four players one booking away from a suspension in the quarter final if they qualify.

United will be without Pogba, who was sent off in the first leg and adding to the pressure is Alexis Sanchez who picked up an injury over the weekend

Without up to ten first team first choices, Solskjaer has a tricky decision whether to risk Martial, but on the 2-0 scoreline may hold him back

Potential PSG Starting XI: Buffon, Bernat, Kimpembe, Silva, Kehrer, Maquinhos, Maria, Draxler, Nkunku and Mbappe

Potential Man Utd Starting XI: Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Dalot, Pereira, Rashford and Lukaku

The Verdict

Looking at this game, with the cards stacked against United, with all the players absent, PSG should walk this and should consider going for the win. I believe PSG will want to keep up appearances by netting in the game. It is worth entertaining the idea that PSG have netted two or more in six of their last seven games and have won all of the last five.

Had the 2-0 deficit been in Paris, Manchester United, despite the injuries and suspensions may have fancied the tie a bit more with the Old Trafford fans behind them. But in Paris I think their 5/1 price will only attract the punters that see the game being won 0-1 and PSG parking the bus. PSG are 1/2 to net two or more, roughly the same as their match odds, whereas other markets such as win to nil is almost 9/5 with Marathonbet.

United do not have the best midfield at hand to get the through balls in, and this could add some credibility to the win to nil. I believe with PSG only conceding two goals in the last five adds some weighting.

I do not think Manchester United will fold easily, but be outplayed and possibly see the same score line as their previous two meeting, which was 2-0. Therefore, seeing the Asian Handicap -1 market at 11/13, feel comfortable they will win the game in front of their fans, but have the insurance of a single goal win triggering a stake refund.
