Manchester United look to finalise their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with the visit of Paris Saint-Germain as a compelling group H nears a conclusion.
The Ligue 1 giants must at least edge out RB Leipzig, who are level on six points with Thomas Tuchel’s side, to make sure they make it into the knock-out stages of the competition, as they look to return to the final after last season’s defeat to champions Bayern Munich.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look towards Edinson Cavani to ignite United’s attack here, with his double last weekend earning all three points against Southampton to leave his side ninth, having played a game less than every side above them in the table.
PSG will also look to stop Marcus Rashford, whose late winner in Paris in October ensured a testing conclusion to the group for last season’s finalists. PSG could find themselves three points behind Leipzig in second should they suffer defeat at Old Trafford with Istanbul BB failing to take anything from their home game at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium against the Germans.

Manchester United: 9/5
United only need a draw to confirm their status in the last 16, but PSG are three points off the Red Devils, with RB Leipzig able to also move to nine points with victory over Istanbul BB. This added urgency leaves us to lean towards an away victory, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side holding a clear advantage in recent head-to-heads. United 1-2 PSG.
