Team News

Manchester United
No PSG fan would have been surprised to see Cavani's heroics on Sunday, having watched the Uruguayan plunder a club-record 200 goals in 301 games for the French giants during his seven-year stay, helping them to 15 trophies along the way.

Another goal on Wednesday would be his 50th in UEFA club competition, but he has been engulfed in a racism storm since Sunday's match and Solskjaer must therefore make a decision whether he is ready to start against his former club.

Given that he is facing a possible domestic ban after using a racially-insensitive word in an Instagram post, Solskjaer may choose to use him in Europe, particularly with a question mark still hanging over the head of Anthony Martial, who missed the Southampton game through illness.

Martial is expected to be available but may be held back anyway, while David de Gea is also hopeful of recovering from the knock which forced him off at half time against Southampton.

With Dean Henderson desperate for more minutes, Solskjaer could go for his back-up keeper if De Gea is anything less than 100%, while he is also likely to practice caution over fellow injury doubts Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay and Eric Bailly.

Luke Shaw remains out with a hamstring injury, but Alex Telles is expected to overcome a minor issue from the weekend.

Paul Pogba should be available to make his 50th Champions League appearance following an ankle injury, while Donny van de Beek is expected to shake off a minor ankle problem after finally making his first Premier League start at the weekend. His next appearance will also be his 50th in UEFA club competition.

Marcus Rashford has scored five goals in his four Champions League outings this season - as many as he managed in his first 18 such appearances - so he is expected to start once again too.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Matic, Van de Beek; Fernandes; Rashford, Cavani
Manchester United Champions League form: WWLW
Manchester United form (all competitions): LLWWWW

PSGAxel Tuanzebe is suspended for this one, having starred in the reverse fixture on matchday one.

PSG could be without Marquinhos after he sat out Saturday's match with an adductor injury, while Julian Draxler and Thilo Kehrer are also expected to miss the match.

Juan Bernat is a long-term absentee, but there was better news on the injury front at the weekend with Mauro Icardi returning off the bench and Idrissa Gueye also deemed fit enough for a place among the subs.

Eighteen-year-old Timothee Pembele made his debut at centre-back on Saturday but scored an own goal after only 10 minutes and he could lose his place in the side for this one.

Former Manchester United duo Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera will both be hopeful of a return to a starting lineup which is also set to feature star pair Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the latter of whom needs only one more goal to reach 100 for the club in all competitions.

Paris Saint-Germain possible starting lineup:
Navas; Florenzi, Diallo, Kimpembe, Bakker; Verratti, Marquinhos, Herrera; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain Champions League form: LWLW
Paris Saint-Germain form (all competitions): WLWLWD

Head To Head
Man United famously won the reverse fixture in October thanks to Rashford's late goal, having also beaten PSG in Paris for the standout victory of Solskjaer's tenure so far back in March 2019.

PSG have won their only previous visit to Old Trafford, though, meaning that the away side has won all three editions of this fixture in the past.

That home defeat to PSG is Man United's only one in their last 11 meetings with Ligue 1 clubs, and their only one in 15 previous home games against French opposition.

On a personal level, Solskjaer could become only the second manager - after Luis Enrique with Barcelona - to win three successive Champions League games against PSG.

Prediction: Manchester United 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain
