PSG: The French club has an extra day’s rest after playing in Ligue 1 action on Friday, and revenge will be on their minds. After that shock exit from the UCL knockout stage against Manchester United two seasons ago that produced that hilarious Neymar meme, they will want to pound the Red Devils and just might. This team is strong everywhere on the field and has so much speed that can cause United some trouble. Expect PSG to have their way and to really threaten early.
Man United: What a brutal international break for United as they hadn’t been able to respond to the 6-1 loss to Tottenham until last Saturday’s match at Newcastle. The Red Devils have been far from convincing this season and are hoping the addition of Edinson Cavani can make the difference this season, though he won’t be available here. Regardkess, United’s main issues are in defense. Against PSG, expect this backline to be torn apart by Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
The hosts start off on the right foot as United suffer another defeat early on in the season. Pick: PSG 3, Man United 0
