Manchester United and PSG both come into this Champions league meeting wirth a spring in their step after confident weekend wins.

United thrashed Newcastle 4-1 to restore order after that thrashing at the hands of Tottenham at Old Trafford before the international break.

Paris Saint-Germain lost their first two Ligue 1 games this season but recovered well to win their next five, including a 4-0 win over Nimes on the weekend where Kylian Mbappe scored twice.

Neymar was rested for that game and will be raring to go here alongside Mbappe and Angel Di Maria, with fellow former United player Ander Herrera also set to start. Former PSG striker Edinson Cavani is expected to appear from the United bench for his debut.

Here is everything you need to know:

Both sides come into the game with a spring in their step following the weekend. It should be a good contest but PSG have home advantage and the edge in quality with Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe, and I expect them to get the job done tonight. PSG 3-1 Manchester United.
