Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are all set to clash in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 encounter at Old Trafford.

When the draw took place, the Ligue 1 giants were the clear favourites to proceed to the next round, as the Red Devils were struggling heavily under their former boss, Jose Mourinho.

However, since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the Portuguese tactician at the helm, the Mancunian giants have been a force to be reckoned with, and are currently enjoying an 11-match unbeaten streak.

Amid the English side’s resurgence, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has featured for United as well as PSG in the past, has named his pick for the exciting tie.


7 Things That Will Happen If Manchester United Beat PSG

Speaking to Fox Sports, the LA Galaxy superstar stated (via Metro): “PSG is playing against a team that is in their moment now so anything can happen with United, whoever they play against.

“If you had asked me before they had this moment, I would say ‘OK, so PSG are favourites’ but now I think it’s difficult.”

However, no Ibrahimovic interview is complete without a typical Zlatan-esque quote, and the Swede provided one this time around as well.

The 37-year-old added: “But I think PSG are little favourites because of the players they have but whoever wins, I’m the winner. So whoever goes through I will still have my team in the Champions League. So I’m OK, either way it goes.”
