Man United vs PSG: Michael Owen predicts result of Champions League clash


Former Premier League and La Liga striker, Michael Owen, has tipped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United to beat Paris Saint-Germain in tonight’s Champions League round of 16 first leg tie at Old Trafford.

Man United head to the game following a 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League encounter over the weekend while PSG defeated Bordeaux 1-0 in the French Ligue 1 fixture on Saturday.

Owen told BetVictor: “The first meeting between the clubs and no French side has ever won at United in European competition (L10 D4).

“I wouldn’t have said it two months ago, but I don’t think Paris will buck that trend on what is sure to be a great Old Trafford occasion.

“Neymar and Thomas Meunier will miss the game through injury for the visitors and Edison Cavani was forced off at half-time at the weekend with a hip injury.

“The French side have already lost on English soil this season (3-2 at Anfield in the Group stages) and I feel United will take a lead back to the French capital for the second leg.”

The kick-off time for the match is 9pm.
