PSG are considered as the firm favourites for the two-legged tie, but it will be interesting to watch United’s approach against the French side.

Neymar has predicted that a great match is in store against a top quality side like United. He further claimed that it will be a brilliant experience for the football lovers.

“We are winning everything,” he told Canal+. “The Champions League is every footballer’s dream. We have a great match coming up [against Man United]. It will be a great match for football lovers, and we are happy to face great teams.”
