Tuesday’s tussle between Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain has the makings of a Champions League classic.
When the draw was made in December, the French champions were red-hot favourites to progress.
United, though, are rejuvenated under the stewardship of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will feel confident that they can progress.
Rashford in fine form
Marcus Rashford has been one of the main beneficiaries of Solskjaer’s appointment as manager, scoring six goals since the Norwegian took up the reins at Old Trafford.
888Sport offer 23/4 (6.75) that Rashford scores first on Tuesday. The same firm go 2/1 (3.0) that the striker is on target at any time.
Elsewhere, Paul Pogba will relish this Champions League crunch against the French champions and the midfield maestro has been in fine form of late, scoring eight goals in his last nine games.
888Sport offer 17/2 (9.50) that Pogba opens the scoring at Old Trafford or 3/1 (4.0) that the 25-year-old scores at any time.
Romelu Lukaku has started at Craven Cottage on Saturday and although he has yet to score a Champions League goal this season, he can be backed at 31/20 (2.55) to oblige on Tuesday.
Thomas Tuchel’s side will be without Brazilian striker, Neymar, who suffered a metatarsal injury last month, and Edinson Cavani is likely to be out after injuring a tendon in his hip at the weekend.
All eyes will be on Kylian Mbappe, then, who has hit 22 goals for the Parisians this season and 888Sport go 7/5 (2.40) that he makes his mark against United. They also offer 22/5 (5.40) that the World Cup winner notches the opening goal.
Angel Di Maria is a 16/5 (4.20) chance to grab a goal on his return to Old Trafford.
The Argentine, who has scored two goals in this competition this term, rarely hit the heights that he would have hoped for during his spell with Manchester United and may feel that he has a point to prove.
Mbappe will be at the forefront of PSG’s attacks, but the striker could end the night in the shadow of his international team-mate.
Paul Pogba is in a rich vein of form at present and as such, 888Sport’s 3/1 (4.0) quote for the influential midfielder to score at any time could offer outstanding value.
