The 2018/19 Champions League knockout round start with a mouthwatering contest in which Manchester United play hosts to Paris Saint-Germain. Both teams are in good run of form and fans and neutrals can expect a classic at Old Trafford this Tuesday.
Now the dark days of Mourinho are gone, Manchester United are on fire and come into this contest on the back of a 11-match unbeaten run. There has been a huge improvement to all areas of play and the team look like a heavy weight after bagging 10 wins in the period scoring a mammoth 28 goals.
PSG on the other hand, enjoy a consistent season under Thomas Tuchel and it has been often the case that there are hardly any team to challenge them in France. They sit at the top of Ligue 1 with a 13-point lead over their nearest opponent and are poised to win the league title once again.
Tuchel’s men are a free scoring team and bagged an average 3.1 goals per game in their Ligue 1 and 2.8 per game in the Champions League. Yet, I believe Champions League is the real test to PSG and they are often unchallenged in domestic competitions in France.
