Preview: Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain - 9pm (BST) 1:30 Am (IST)
Manchester United are just one point away from sealing their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a game to spare ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with last year’s runners-up Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils sit top of Group H and know that simply avoiding defeat in one of their final two games will see them through, although on Wednesday they face a PSG side out for revenge and knowing that only a win will really do.
Many Manchester United fans would have feared the worst when Group H was drawn, with last season’s runners-up PSG and semi-finalists RB Leipzig considered bigger favourites than the three-time winners of the competition to progress.
Now, though, the Red Devils need only one point from their remaining matches against those two teams to seal their place in the knockout stages, while victory on Wednesday coupled with Leipzig dropping points against Istanbul Basaksehir - or even a draw coupled with Leipzig losing in Turkey - would secure top spot for United with a game to spare.
It would be regarded as a crisis should PSG fail to progress from Group H, and likely one that would cost Tuchel his job, but that is a very real possibility heading into the penultimate matchday.
A win for PSG at Old Trafford makes their task a great deal easier, but they have only won one of their last four away Champions League games and have lost their last two away outings across all competitions.
