Newspaper: PSG to test United resurgence in CL

PSG star Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United sensation Marcus Rashford

TUKO.co.ke previously reported that striker Edinson Cavani is doubtful for Champions League clash against United after limping off in his side's slim win over Bordeaux. Manchester United finished second in Group H and shuddered in December when UEFA pitted them against Group C victor PSG in the Round of 16 draw, which took place in December.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done "frighteningly well" at Manchester United, says Lee Sharpe, with a familiar face proving to be a better choice than some of the "bigger names" that have been mentioned.

United had again gone with a game plan of inviting pressure and exploiting space on the break, and it had moderately positive results in the first half without ever looking like truly taking PSG apart.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba leaves the field after getting a red card during the Champions League round of 16 soccer match between Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, England, Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.

United's rebirth under Solskjaer couldn't have been any more poorly timed as far as PSG counterpart Thomas Tuchel is concerned.

United had to play the second half without attackers Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial, who suffered injuries, and their night got worse in the 53rd when Kimpembe ghosted in unattended at the back post to volley home a corner from Angel Di Maria.

PSG return to action in Ligue 1 on Sunday, with an away game to St. Étienne.

"They've done well together in a few games".

He has racked up 3 goals and 4 assists in just 6 Champions League games this season and will look to play a pivotal role against Manchester United.

"But we have got some players, who I think will be capable of stopping him", the German star confidently said.

"You can see we haven't played games at this level for a while", Solskjaer said.

Di Maria, booed every time he was on the ball, fired the first warning shot in the sixth minute. People may think that it's easy but I am 40 and I had to learn a new language and that's something that has opened my mind, it was an evolution for me.
