The aggregate scoreline sits 2-0, with the away goal advantage falling to Paris Saint-Germain as they welcome Manchester United to France.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be eager to give it all, with the Norwegian gaffer refusing to rule out a superb comeback. Thomas Tuchel’s men, on the other side, will be more than happy to wrap up this tie and march forward to their bigger intentions of winning Europe’s top prize.

Here’s how the two teams are likely to lineup for the second leg:


The Parisians will be without their starmen Edinson Cavani and Neymar Jr. for the crucial clash, but as the Old Trafford encounter proved, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe can make enough damage on their own.

To add to that, no other member of their squad is injured or indisposed in any manner, and they are likely to field a similar team to the one that has served them well in the Ligue 1 in recent weeks.


Goalkeeper: Areola
Defenders: Meunier, Marquinhos, Kehrer, Kurzawa
Midfielders: Nkunku, Alves, Paredes, Diaby
Forwards: Mbappe, Di Maria

Formation: 4-4-2

Injuries still remain a large point of woe for the Red Devils, with Matteo Darmian, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, and Ander Herrera all injured for the crucial game. To add to that, the red card Paul Pogba picked up in the Old Trafford encounter will mean that he too misses out on this fixture.

A goalscoring side is paramount for United to succeed, with the recent form of Romelu Lukaku potentially the make-or-break factor during the game. Andreas Pereira may get the chance to fill the big boots of Pogba, as indicated by Solskjaer after the Southampton game.

Mason Greenwood has traveled with the squad to Paris, and could make his senior team debut on Wednesday.


Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw
Midfielders: Dalot, McTominay, Fred
Forwards: Pereira; Rashford, Lukaku

Formation: 4-3-1-2
