On Tuesday, Ole Gunnar Solskjær faces his toughest test since taking charge of Manchester United, as his side play host to Paris Saint-Germain in the opening leg of the first Champions League knockout round. The French champions head in as favourites, though injuries to Neymar and Edinson Cavani will give United some hope of carrying an unlikely victory into the reverse fixture at the Parc des Princes.
Despite boasting one of Europe’s strongest squads, PSG have been eliminated at this stage in the Champions League for two years running: 2016 was the last time they made it into the quarterfinals. United’s record in recent years has, however, been even worse. Not since 2014 and the dark days of David Moyes have the Reds made it into the Champions League’s final eight. Let’s hope for better luck this time around.
