Manchester United vs PSG LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Champions League fixture tonight

Manchester United host Paris Saint-Germain as group H in the Champions League nears a conclusion.

Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side just a point away from clinching a last 16 berth, there are only three points separating the Red Devils from both PSG and RB Leipzig. Edinson Cavani will hope to feature against his former team, having joined United on a free transfer after being released by the Ligue 1 champions, and the Uruguayan is in fine form after his brace earned victory against Southampton last weekend.

Thomas Tuchel has admitted Marcus Rashford’s recent record against the Ligue 1 side is beginning to get “annoying”: "We value him very much when he plays in England and not Parc des Princes, honestly, because (him scoring against us) gets a little bit annoying". Follow live updates, analysis and reaction from Old Trafford on a big night of European football:

EARLY GOALS

The early match in the group is now 2-0 to RB Leipzig at Istanbul Basaksehir, with Nordi Mukiele on the scoresheet. Yussuf Poulsen has been credited with the first goal.

Assuming no dramatic fightback from the Turkish hosts, it means Leipzig will be level on points with United, with nine apiece - and PSG on six ahead of tonight’s clash.

And as we speak…Kahveci has pulled one back on the stroke of half-time. 2-1!

MAN UNITED VS PSG: PREDICTION

United only need a draw to confirm their status in the last 16, but PSG are three points off the Red Devils, with RB Leipzig able to also move to nine points with victory over Istanbul BB. This added urgency leaves us to lean towards an away victory, despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side holding a clear advantage in recent head-to-heads. United 1-2 PSG.
