The away side on the day has won all three previous UEFA Champions League (UCL) H2Hs, but with Manchester United on a run of four competitive wins in a row (90 minutes only) for the first time since January 2019 – and having scored an average of 4.5 goals per UCL home fixture this term (W2) – the ‘Red Devils’ could buck that trend against a faltering Paris Saint-Germain side.
A victory could guarantee United first place – results pending elsewhere – but they’ve been unpredictable at home this season (W3, D1, L3 – in all competitions). The three-time European champions have a superb record at home to Ligue 1 sides though (W10, D3, L1), albeit the one defeat was versus PSG in 2018/19.
These are strange times at PSG, with the Parisians winning just two of their last five competitive matches (W2, D1, L2) despite leading at some stage in all. They’ve also scored an uncharacteristic average of just 1.25 goals per UEFA Champions League (UCL) fixture this term (W2, L2), so it’s little surprise that PSG are winless in six of the seven games this season in which they failed to keep a clean sheet.
PSG are now on the verge of losing three competitive away games within 90 minutes for the first time during the Qatari period (2011/12 – present). However, they can take hope from scoring in 30 consecutive UCL group stage matches (home/away), and netting the opener in their last seven competitive road trips.
Our bookies have penciled both teams to score and Betpay is offering odds of 1.55 for that eventuality, with a draw looking like the most likely outcome.
Manchester United 2-2 PSG
