Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils went into the first leg of their last-16 tie full of confidence,
but the French giants took the wind out of United’s sails with a comprehensive 2-0 win at Old Trafford.
That result leaves PSG as heavy favorites to reach the quarter-finals but if anybody can inspire a European comeback against the odds, it is United’s 1999 Treble hero Solskjaer.
Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial when they face Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday.
Pogba is suspended after he was sent off in the 2-0 first-leg defeat at Old Trafford while Martial misses out due to a hamstring issue.
United also have several other injury concerns as they look to claim a famous victory and advance to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2013/14.
The defeat to PSG is Solskjaer’s only loss since he was appointed a caretaker manager in December and he has won a club-record eight away games in a row.
United have won three of four matches since the first leg while PSG has won their last seven games in a row in all competitions.
