Team News:
Manchester United will be without their talisman Paul Pogba who is facing a suspension for his red card in the first leg against PSG. And to add to their troubles, Manchester United will be without 8 first-team players including Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Antonio Valencia, Mateo Darmian, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard. If Manchester United turn this game on its head, it will be nothing less than a footballing miracle.

When the two sides met at Old Trafford last month, there was a sense of optimism in the fans due to Manchester United's resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and injuries to Neymar and Edison Cavani, who are key members of Thomas Tuchel's PSG.

But PSG showed why they are considered one of the best sides in Europe. Goals from Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave PSG insurance going into the second leg. Manchester United were made to face the reality of how far behind they still are of competing in Europe.
PSG are 17 points ahead of 2nd place Lille in Ligue 1 with a game in hand. They have won 23 games, drawn 2 and lost just 1 in the league. They have won 7 games in a row, including that 0-2 humbling of Manchester United in the Champions League.

Kylian Mbappe has been in inspiring form and has stepped-up in absence of Neymar and Edison Cavani. He has scored 29 goals for PSG this season and provided 12 assists in all competitions. Kylian Mbappe will be the main threat against Manchester United for PSG.
Manchester United will take a lot of positives into Wednesday's clash from the 3-2 victory over Southampton in the Premier League. Manchester United are still unbeaten in the Premier League under Solskjaer and have won 8 consecutive away games in all competition, a record PSG will be wary of before the game.

They have won 4 of their last 5 Premier League games and drawn 1. The only game Manchester United lost under Ole was against PSG in the Champions League.
