The stakes for a quarter final place beckons tonight as Manchester United travel to France to square it up against Paris Saaint Germain.

The red devils head into this match with a 2 goal deficit which means they have to score at least three goals without conceding to book their place in the quarter final spot.

United are however disadvantaged as they go into this match with a number of injury concerns. Key men Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, , Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian and Alexis Sanchez will be missing in tonight’s clash.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaers only defeat since his appointment as interim manager for the red devils was against PSG during their encounter at Old Trafford in February.

PSG on the other hand have won their last seven games in a row in all competitions.

Key man Edinson Cavani is available for selection whiles Neymar remains a doubt for this match.

The statistics by far favour PSG. They lost only one of their last 16 Champions League games at home; they have won 10 and drawn 5 in the process.

No club in the history of the Champions League has ever progressed to the next round  after losing the first leg of a knockout match at home by two or more goals.

Paris Saint Germain are expected to win this by at least a 2 goal margin to progress to the next stage of the champions league.
