The Red Devils are undefeated since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been in charge, but their biggest challenge comes this Tuesday evening when PSG are coming to Manchester. Sure, Man United will have huge support from the stands of the Old Trafford, but the French side are among the biggest favorites for winning the Champions League this season. So, what to expect from this match? Find out in our Man United vs PSG prediction and betting tips!
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been the caretaker manager of Manchester United since 22nd December and out of 11 games with the Norwegian in charge, the Red Devils won 10. Some may argue that they still haven’t had too big of a challenge. But, they did beat Tottenham in the Premier League, as well as Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Still, those teams are nowhere near PSG who are among the top favorites for winning the UCL title this season. But, the chances of Man United are rising all the time. And if they manage to leave PSG behind, who knows what can happen. To do that, they will need to grab points at Old Trafford, because PSG are sensational on their turf.
This means that winning on Tuesday evening is a priority for Man United. And with the help of over 70k supporters, such a feat doesn’t seem impossible. Even when Mourinho was their manager, the Red Devils were great at home. Actually, they’re without a home defeat since October when Juventus beat them 1:0.
The biggest problem for PSG ahead of this match is Neymar’s injury. He’s their only absentee form the first squad, but his absence could reduce their chances of getting to the next stage of the Champions League.
Still, even without Neymar in the team, PSG have been doing pretty well. They did lose to Lyon in Ligue 1 less than 10 days ago, but that game wasn’t of too big importance as they have a comfortable lead on the league table.
Another reason why they could do well even without Neymar is that other PSG players have been sensational lately. Mbappe is currently the top scorer in Ligue 1, with just one goal more than Cavani. Di Maria has also been in a good run, especially when it comes to assists.
The final reason why PSG fans can feel optimistic ahead of the Tuesday’s duel is that their team has done really well in the group stage of the Champions League, where they played against such heavyweights as Liverpool and Napoli. Still, they didn’t do too great in away matches in the group stage, losing to Liverpool at the Anfield and playing draw with Napoli at San Paolo. They did beat Red Star at Stadion Rajko Mitic, but the home team were huge underdogs.

Manchester United vs PSG Prediction
This is going to be a very close game, so better stay away from betting on the outcome. Instead, better put some money on a large number of goals. Considering how powerful these teams are in the attack, we should see at least three goals in this game. And we’ll probably see goals on both ends.
