PSG v Manchester United betting tips

Manchester United scrambled home when it came to landing a top-four spot in last season’s Premier League and the Red Devils will now take their place in the Champions League, with the English side having been handed a tough qualifying group as they return to this competition.

United are in Group H along with Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig who went deep in last season’s Champions League, with the former making it all the way to the final before losing to Bayern Munich, while the German team were beaten by PSG in the semis.

İstanbul Başakşehir also shouldn’t be overlooked after winning the Turkish Super League, although Manchester United’s first assignment is at the Parc des Princes on 20 October and it looks like a tough ordeal for them.

Have Manchester United Got a Prayer Against PSG?

Most football fans will remember the last time that the Red Devils clashed with PSG. After being outclassed by Thomas Tuchel’s side in the first leg of their Champions League last sixteen clash two seasons ago, Manchester United went to the French capital more in hope than expectation although they somehow engineered a win thanks to a last-gasp penalty from Marcus Rashford.

Even so, the bookies are out to lay Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team for this encounter and you can currently get odds as big as 17/4 about the visitors leaving Paris with the three points, although a draw would clearly represent a positive outcome and that is currently trading at 10/3 with William Hill.

Solskjaer has seen his United team get off to a miserable start this season, with the side slumping to defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur, with few expecting them to pull up any trees against one of the most formidable sides in Europe.

Are Paris Saint-Germain a Banker for this Champions League Clash?

After reaching the 2020 Champions League final, it was a pretty slow start to the 2020/21 campaign for Thomas Tuchel’s side although Paris Saint-Germain have clicked into gear after a 1-0 defeat against Lens before an ill-tempered match saw them lose by the same scoreline when they clashed with Marseille.

Things are a lot rosier after a spate of victories and the recent 6-1 victory over Angers illustrates that Tuchel has the side clicking back into gear, with PSG travelling to Nimes for another Ligue 1 encounter before their Champions League engagement with Manchester United.

Alessandro Florenzi has arrived on loan from Roma this season, with the rest of the team looking fairly familiar and that includes the irrepressible pair of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar who will feel as though they have old scores to settle when it comes to facing United.

There’s also Angel Di Maria who had a short spell with the Red Devils, while Mauro Icardi is not a bad Plan B should things not be going according to plan, with United unlikely to nullify this Paris attack for a full ninety minutes.

What Are the Best Bets?

We’re going to take a punt on Paris Saint-Germain to win the match against Manchester United although they are trading at short odds and perhaps it’s worth looking at backing them to lead at half-time and full-time in this clash.

Paris could have hit their straps for this game after the players all return from the international break, while we are also happy to look at a big correct score in favour of last season’s Champions League finalists and a 4-1 scoreline looks along the right lines at juicy odds of 20/1.
