The Parc des Princes in Paris hosts one of the headline matches of the opening round of the 2020/21 Champions League as Manchester United travel to face off with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
PSG had their most glorious Champions League campaign last season as they made it all the way to the final for the first time ever but lost out to Bayern Munich in a tightly contested final.
They began the Ligue 1 season with surprise losses to Lens and Marseille but they’ve quickly turned things around, racking off five straight wins, while scoring 16 goals and conceding only one goal in that span to move to second on the log, just a couple of points behind surprise leaders Lille.
Tuchel will be wary of Man Utd who knocked them out of the Champions League in their last encounter as they overturned a 2-0 first-leg loss with a shocking 3-1 win at the Parc des Princes.
United had a strong finish in the second half of last season to pip Chelsea to the third spot in the league and bowed out of the semi-finals in the Europa and the FA Cup.
They have however started this season with a stutter, suffering bad losses at home to Crystal Palace and Tottenham, and barely beating Brighton in a match where they were awarded a controversial penalty after the final whistle. Saturday’s 4-1 win at Newcastle was, however, a morale booster coming into this match.
Ole Gunnar will still be without veteran striker Edinson Cavani, who left PSG as a free agent in the summer.
PSG are enjoying a rich vein of form despite a starting the season on the wrong foot. They’ve won their last 5 straight Ligue 1 games in impressive fashion. They proved their pedigree on the European stage last season going toe-to-toe with eventual champions Bayern in the finals. Revenge is very much at the back of their heads as they approach this game as the last time they faced off with United, they were left with an egg on their face. With Man United going through some rough patches, particularly on the defensive end, we fancy PSG to pick an easy win here @ 1.58 with Bet9ja as our first betting tip here.
These two teams have very formidable attacking players. Mbappe, Neymar and Mauro Icardi will cause a scare to any defence. United have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last four Champions League away games. With reports that Harry Maguire failing to travel with the team after picking an injury in the Newcastle win coming through, then the already shaky central Man United defence that has picked up 12 goals in six matches this season could be in for a long night. United are certainly capable of getting a goal themselves, having scored 15 in those six matches. This makes the goal market really interesting to look at. We are going for Over 2.5 goals @ 1.40 with Bet9ja betting app as our final tip.
