Manchester United vs PSG – TV channel, kick-off time, team news, odds

Manchester United host Paris Saint-Germain tonight in the UEFA Champions League as they look to continue a winning run which was aided by an excellent 3-2 comeback win at the weekend against Southampton.

The Reds are building momentum after a dodgy start to the campaign, winning their last four matches in all competitions, and suddenly the manager’s position seems to be in safe hands. Although I think United can do better the problems we’ve faced this season haven’t been completely down to Solskjaer, and I still believe he is doing a lot of good in and around the team.

We’ve fond memories against PSG under Solskjaer, too. From beating the Ligue 1 champions in October and famously in 2019 to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Parisians, however, will be out for more than revenge as they need a win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages intact.

What time is the big game between Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain?

The match kicks-off at 8pm at Old Trafford.

What TV channel will televise Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain?

Coverage begins at 7pm on BT Sports 2.

Team news

David de Gea and Alex Telles will be available despite pre-existing fears over the duo.

On top of that, Solskjaer has three players returning to the side — Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay — but it’s still bad news for Luke Shaw. The English left-back is out with a hamstring injury he sustained against Everton in the league.

Our French opponents are without Julian Draxler and Juan Bernat.

I would be far-fetched to suggest PSG are in crisis. They occupy their familiar position at the top of the Ligue 1 table and are second in their Champions League group behind United.

There is something make-or-break about PSG’s visit to Old Trafford, a sense that Champions League elimination could make Tuchel’s position untenable?

I don’t think PSG’s Qatari owners will keep faith with the German coach if they’re playing Europa League football with Real Madrid after Christmas.

A second defeat to United in this group stage would not kill their hopes of progressing in the competition, but it would mean a nervy matchday six encounter with Istanbul Basaksehir — hoping the Reds get an away with at RB Leipzig on the same night.
