Betting prediction: Manchester United 1 – 1 Paris Saint-Germain

The Red Devils welcome PSG to the Old Trafford in Manchester on Wednesday for this UEFA Champions League match.

 

If home disadvantage was a theory in football, this head-to-head would be held up as evidence to support it. All three matches between these sides have ended in away victories. This includes the only meeting between them at Old Trafford which was won 0-2 by the Parisians.

 

However, Manchester United aside, PSG have a poor record on English soil. They have won only 1 of their other 10 matches in England. That victory came over Gus Hiddink’s Chelsea back in 2016 in the last 16 of the Champions League.

 

United also have a solid home record against French opposition, winning 10 of 13 home matches. In fact, their loss to PSG here in 2019 is their only defeat at Old Trafford to a French side.

Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain: What are the betting odds?

United have a 100% home record in the group so far, winning both their previous matches by at least 3 clear goals. However, in the Premier League their away form has carried them this season, winning 4 from 4 away while winning only 1 from 5 at Old Trafford. This perhaps explains why they are the 9/5 outsiders to maintain their 100% home record in Europe with a win against PSG.

 

PSG lost their previous away match in Europe 2-1 in Leipzig. They also threw away a 0-2 lead in Monaco on their previous Ligue 1 away-day, losing 3-2 to AS Monaco. However, their 0-2 win the last time they visited Old Trafford sees them start the match as slight favourites at 11/8.

 

A draw here would guarantee qualification from the group for United with a superior head-to-head over PSG. Odds of 13/5 are available if you see Manchester United getting the point they need from PSG on Wednesday.

Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain: Recommended bets

101 Great Goals’ prediction of Manchester United 1 – 1 PSG is available at odds of 6/1.

 

Manchester United won the previous Champions League match between these sides back in October, 1-2 in Paris. A repeat of this score for United on Wednesday is available at odds of 10/1.

 

PSG won on their only previous visit to Old Trafford back in February 2019. You can back them at 12/1 for the same 0-2 scoreline here on Wednesday.

 

There have been 5 goals in each of Manchester United’s home matches in the Champions League this season. You can back another high scoring game here on Wednesday with odds of 8/13 on for over 2.5 goals.

 

Kylian Mbappé (above) scored PSG’s second goal in their 0-2 win here last year. However, he is currently on a goal-drought in the Champions League having failed to find the net so far in 2020. The French international’s last goal in Europe was against Galatasaray back in November 2019. Mbappé is the favourite at evens to get on the scoresheet on Wednesday bringing to an end his 8-game run without a goal. Or you can get odds of 15/4 for him to score the game’s opener on Wednesday.

 

Marcus Rashford (below) is United’s top-scorer in Europe this season with 5 goals in 4 appearances for the club. This includes the winning goal when these two sides met in Paris back in October. Rashford is 13/8 to get on the scoresheet. You can back the English international at 6/1 to grab the game’s opening goal.

Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain: Match preview

“Give me 10 points and I will see you in March”

 

This was the mantra of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United. The aim being to get 10 points on the board as quick as possible to get out of the group. In this first UEFA Champions League Group Stages as manager of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has followed his mentor’s blueprints for escaping the group almost to the letter.

 

Many were predicting this would be a group of death for United when the draw was made. Last season’s beaten finalists PSG were the clear favourites to qualify. The group also included last seasons Champions League semi-finalists RB Leipzig and the unknown quantity of Istanbul Basaksehir.

 

However, they followed up their opening group match win against PSG in Paris by trouncing Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford. With the job seemingly done, they took their eye off the prize against Basaksehir, losing 2-1 in Istanbul. A 4-1 win at Old Trafford against their Turkish opponents in matchday 4 has left them needing just a point here to escape the group.

 

PSG will know anything other than a win here won’t be enough to keep their destiny in their own hands. A point here followed up with a win in Istanbul Basaksehir would leave them on 10 points. However, United could lose against RB Leipzig in their final match and still finish above PSG on the head-to-head.

 

A PSG win would leave United needing a point against Leipzig to be sure of qualification in the final match of the group. A situation they will surely wish to avoid.

Manchester United team news vs Paris Saint-Germain

United have an injury crisis to manage here. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf are the only options fit and available to play here in central defence. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be weary of the amount of football they are playing though.

 

Central defensive duo Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are yet to play for United this season. Along with Sergio Romero, they aren’t registered for the Champions League.

 

Axel Tuanzebe is suspended following his accumulation of 3 yellow cards in the competition.

 

Luke Shaw has missed the last 2 league matches due to a thigh injury. He isn’t expected to be fit for either of United’s remaining games in Group H.

 

Eric Bailly hasn’t featured for United since the 1-6 defeat against Spurs. He is rated as a major doubt for the visit of PSG.

 

Scott McTominay, who has played as an emergency defender in the past, also missed the game at the weekend due to injury.

 

Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial were also left out of the squad at the weekend. The trio are all nearing a return to action and maybe involved on Wednesday should they prove their fitness prior to kick-off.

 

Alex Telles and David De Gea (above) both picked up injuries in the come-from-behind win against Southampton at the weekend. The pair are expected to be available on Wednesday, but will Ole risk playing them?

Paris Saint-Germain team news vs Manchester United

Thilo Kehrer has been ruled out for up to 4 months with an adductor injury. He had surgery on what has been described as a ‘chronic groin problem’ and now won’t kick a ball for the Parisians until the European football returns in March 2021.

 

Juan Bernat has also been ruled out until March 2021 at the earliest due to a cruciate ligament rupture. He suffered the injury back in September and it is possible he won’t feature again for PSG this season.

 

Julian Draxler has struggled with injuries this season for PSG. He has missed the last 4 league games due to a hamstring injury and will be absent again on Wednesday evening. As yet, there is no expected return date for him.

 

Mauro Icardi had a 5-minute cameo at the weekend against Bordeaux. He had missed the previous 5 league matches due to a medial collateral ligament knee injury. Icardi is unlikely to start at Old Trafford but could be used as an impact sub, if needed, to give their attack a different dimension.

 

Former United pair Ángel Di María and Ander Herrera were rested at the weekend. They both came on in the 27th minute of the match. The pair will be hoping for a recall to the starting XI on Wednesday.

 

Abdou Diallo, Keylor Navas, Layvin Kurzawa (above), Marquinhos, Idrissa Gueye, Danilo Pereira and Pablo Sarabia also didn’t start the match at the weekend. Most should be involved from the start here.
