What Trueform says for PSG vs Man Utd
Manchester United seem determined to give it a go when visiting PSG in the Champions League but have a mountain to climb after losing 2-0 at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were clearly outplayed after the interval on home turf and key playmaker Paul Pogba will be suspended for the second leg.
We think 9/5 for the French aristocrats to prevail and both teams to score is the way to go with our opening PSG vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Paris Saint-Germain’s Betting Odds
PSG have put in some horror shows on the road in Europe’s elite club competition in the past and looked jittery without Neymar and Edinson Cavani early on in England.
However, Thomas Tuchel’s half-time team talk seemed to settle the visitors down and their confidence grew further after Presnel Kimpembe struck from a poorly-defended corner.
Angel Di Maria then set up Kylian Mbappe to expertly slot in a second on the break and the margin of victory could even have been greater as PSG controlled the second period.
Di Maria epitomised his side’s performance, failing to impress during a scrappy first half but then looking a constant threat after the break against his former club.
Tuchel said: “I’m happy he stayed confident, he’s always super reliable, he always gives his best and for that it’s easy to forgive him when he has not such a good first half.”
PSG are unlikely to slip up back on home turf, where they beat Liverpool during the group stage, although it should be noted there were no clean sheets in three pool fixtures in France.
Since beating United, PSG have won four straight Ligue 1 games to open up a 17-point gap at the summit, although they did have to come from behind when obliging 2-1 at Caen on Saturday.
Mbappe netted both goals at Stade Michel-d’Ornano and 11/4 for him to bag a brace or better again here takes the eye from the PSG vs Man Utd odds, while 21/2 for a 3-1 home win is also worth support.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted United were beaten by a “top, top team” in the first encounter, but they have since continued to progress in domestic fixtures.
Chelsea were knocked out of the FA Cup via a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge, before a home draw with Liverpool in the Premier League was followed by entertaining victories over Crystal Palace and Southampton.
Ashley Young insisted: “We know what we’re capable of. People can write us off. People were writing us off at the start of the season and people are writing us off now. It’s no different.
“Obviously, it’s going to be tough. It’s not going to be easy. We’ve got to go over there, win the game and score goals.
“I’ve got every faith if we defend well and if we create the chances that I know we can do, we can win the game.”
Pogba’s ban and injuries to fellow midfielders Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard make the task even more difficult.
However, Romelu Lukaku’s return to form with four goals in two games is a boost and 9/4 for him to score at anytime completes our PSG vs Man Utd betting tips.
“I wouldn’t want to play against him,” added Young. “He does give us a different presence.”
