Michael Owen rates Manchester United’s chances of qualifying for knockout round after PSG defeat

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed the club to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage despite our home defeat against PSG.

The former England international believes it will be a real battle between us and RB Leipzig to take the final spot as he expects PSG to qualify.

Assessing United’s chances ahead of next week’s trip to Germany, Owen added: “PSG are going to go through so basically it’s a shootout between Manchester United and RB Leipzig.

“Both teams can score but both teams look vulnerable. United should not go there with any fear.

“I think they will score goals in Germany so I still fancy Manchester United to get a draw or a win but they’ve made it dangerous for themselves.”
