Paris Saint-Germain is hosting Manchester United at Parc des Princes in round 1 in the UEFA Champions League.
PSG is playing fantastic soccer at the moment, and they have won 5 straight games in Ligue 1. During this stretch, PSG has scored 16 goals while conceding only 1 goal. In their last match in Ligue 1 against Nimes on the road, PSG was the dominant team with 76% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 89% of the correct passes. PSG was constantly attacking in this game, and they have won this match 0-4. PSG is now in second place with 15 points in Ligue 1. Mbappe is the leading goalscorer for PSG with 4 goals so far. Bernat, Kehrer, Marquinhos, Verratti, Icardi, Pereira, and Draxler are all injured, and they will most likely not be playing in this game. PSG was in the finals of the Champions League last season, and they lost, but overall, PSG is a good team, they play great soccer in the attacking end, but their defense is shaky, and with the injuries of Marquinhos and Kehrer, this could be a big problem for them in this game. PSG reached the finals last season, but I’m not sure if they can do it again.
Manchester United is not playing well, but they have won this last game in the EPL this past weekend. Manchester United was playing against Newcastle on the road in that game, and they were the better team with 64% of ball possession, 14 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. Manchester started the game bad, and they conceded a goal in the 2nd minute. In the 23rd minute, Manchester was able to tie the game, and the half time result was 1-1. It took a while for Manchester United to score another goal, but they have scored 3 more goals in the last 10 minutes of the game. Manchester United has won this match 1-4. With only 6 points from 4 games, Manchester is in 15th place in the EPL standings. Offensively, United is solid with 9 scored goals, but their defense is sloppy and inconsistent. United has conceded 12 goals so far. Manchester United didn’t compete in the Champions League last season, but they had a solid run in the Europa League. There are a lot of problems in Manchester United right now, but they don’t have any injuries at the moment, and that will certainly help them in this match.
PSG and United have met 3 times in the past, and PSG has won 2 games, while Manchester United won 1 game. The away team has been dominating this matchup. Both teams have plenty of offensive firepowers, but PSG has a lot of important injuries, especially on the defensive end, but United is bad on the defensive end even without injuries. The only reasonable bet here is goals.
