Thomas Tuchel’s side is already looking at playing “Plan D” when they face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
When Paris Saint-Germain were paired with Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League, it seemed they’d been given a green light towards the quarter-finals.Barely two months on, though, and the tables are turned.
Under Solskjaer, United have rediscovered their customary swagger, while this clash couldn’t have come at a worse time for PSG.
Luck has played its role, deserting the Parc des Princes club at a vital juncture. Neymar, the most expensive player, has suffered a reoccurrence of a foot injury, while Edinson Cavani is sidelined with a thigh problem and Marco Verratti seems to have an ankle problem to be fit for this clash.
