Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed the club to seal qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League when we host Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
The team ran out 2-1 winners in Paris on matchday 1 as Marcus Rashford scored a dramatic late winner against the French champions in our last meeting.
Pundit Owen believes we will edge past the French champions with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Old Trafford.
“Manchester United go into this match knowing that a point will be enough to take them through to the next round,” Owen told BetVictor.
“I’m sure that Sunday’s marvellous comeback away to Southampton will still have the players on a high.
“That’s good news for Ole Gunnar Solkjaer after he endured a lot of criticism over the last few weeks.
“PSG managed to get a vital 1-0 win over Leipzig last week, so they’ll be looking to another victory here to ensure they give themselves the best chance of progression to the next stage. Brazilian duo Marquinhos and Neymar should return here, which is another bonus for the Parisians.
“Again, this is another tight one to call. However, with United back in good form, I think they can take all 3 points and secure qualification.”
