Paris Saint-Germain v Manchester United Betting Tips & Predictions – Wednesday 6th March 2019

Paris Saint-Germain welcome Manchester United to the Parc des Princes this Wednesday evening for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie. After a dominant display at Old Trafford, the French side hold a handy 2-0 advantage in the tie and in the past that has proved an impossible mountain to climb for the the away side in the return. As expected, PSG are the overwhelming favourites to seal a win and book their place in the last eight after they played so well without Neymar at Old Trafford.

However, the Red Devils have been in tremendous form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he took over from the sacked Jose Mourinho back in December. In fact, at the time of writing, that defeat to the Paris side remains United’s only loss in 15 league and cup matches under the Norwegian. This tie might not be done and dusted just yet and if the Red Devils score first things could get nervy for the hosts who aren’t exactly known for their mental fortitude.

Paris Saint-Germain News: PSG in Stunning Shape

PSG's Parc des Princes

PSG head into this Champions League tie in outstanding form. Before playing Caen in Ligue 1 at the weekend, Thomas Tuchel’s troops have won seven in a row in all competitions. In the league, the French champions are a whopping 17 points clear at the top having won 22 of their 25 matches. Along the way, Paris have been beaten just once in Ligue 1 and so, unlike United, they have the luxury of resting players if they want during domestic action.

Tuchel’s Side Beat Liverpool to Top Spot in Group C

PSG recovered well from their opening night loss to Liverpool, going on to win Champions League Group C by two points. After losing 3-2 in a thriller at Anfield, Paris thumped Red Star Belgrade 6-1 at the Parc des Princes before drawing home and away against Italian side Napoli. After a hard fought but definitely deserved 2-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in Paris, PSG ended their group campaign with a comfortable 4-1 triumph against Red Star in the Serbian capital to go through on 11 points.

French Champions Have Been Sensational at Home

PSG have been frightening on their own patch this season. In Ligue 1, Tuchel’s team have won 14 out of 14 on home turf, scoring a staggering 50 goals in the process. Meanwhile, Paris have netted three or more goals in 12 home matches across all competitions and even without their Brazilian talisman they keep firing in the goals. The French giants will take some stopping on Wednesday.

Manchester United News: Feelgood Factor Back at Old Trafford

Regardless of the outcome on Wednesday night, Solskjaer has certainly brought the good times back to Old Trafford. There was plenty of doom and gloom in the red half of Manchester during the latter stages of Mourinho’s reign, but Ole, a legend at the Theatre of Dreams during his playing days, has turned things around in tremendous fashion in such a short space of time. Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park was United’s ninth victory in 11 Premier League games under their new boss. The Red Devils are now right on the cusp of the top four in England’s top tier, something that Mourinho had openly written off when he was in charge.

Eight Away Wins on the Spin for United

Mourinho was relieved of his duties at Old Trafford after a 3-1 defeat at Liverpool back in mid-December. Since then, the Red Devils have won eight league and cup matches in a row, seeing off Cardiff City, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Leicester City, Fulham, Chelsea and Palace. Prior to that incredible run, United had claimed just five away wins all season but they now play to their strengths on the road and look to hit teams on the counter.

Injury Concerns for Ole

Several players suffered injuries in last Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool. Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard went off injured while Marcus Rashford soldiered on. Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Anthony Martial are doubts for the trip to Paris while Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia are sidelined. United will send a relatively inexperienced squad to France, an issue made worse by Paul Pogba’s suspension.

Analysis: PSG to Prove Too Strong

Going by PSG’s recent record at the Parc des Princes, this could be a long night for Solskjaer and his team. The French giants taught United a footballing lesson in the first leg, scoring two away goals without reply. United have given themselves a mountain to climb in the French capital, and we can see the Parisians securing a comfortable win on home soil.

Home Side to Dominate

Paris have been leading at half time in five of their last six league and cup wins. More often than not, PSG have the job done by the interval, and we can see that being the case on Wednesday. Take a punt on the home team to be winning at half time and full time at 5/4.

Clean Sheet for Paris

The Parisians have won without conceding on a staggering 19 occasions across all competitions this term, including at Old Trafford in the first leg. Back PSG to win to nil again on Wednesday at 13/8, good value with the offensive injuries in the Red Devils’ ranks.

Di Maria to Have Another Huge Impact

Angel Di Maria ran the show at Old Trafford, assisting both of PSG’s goals in Manchester. The Argentina international has also been in good form in front of goal recently, scoring three times in his last five outings. Di Maria is worth backing at 2/1 to score anytime on Wednesday and really show United once again what he is capable of.

Recent Matches

The matchup between the pair at Old Trafford last month was the first ever competitive meeting between Man Utd and PSG. They did square off in the 2015 International Champions Cup pre-season tournament in Chicago, with Blaise Matuidi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the scoresheet in a 2-0 win for the French side.

12th February 2019: Manchester United 0 – 2 PSG

Paris outclassed and outfought Man Utd at Old Trafford in the first leg of this Champions League Round of 16 tie. In truth, it was a pretty even first period, but the away side really came alive after the break. Presnel Kimpembe gave the visitors a 53rd minute goal. Seven minutes later, the excellent Kylian Mbappe made it 2-0 to give Tuchel’s boys a comfortable win.
