Why Bet On Manchester United?
Why should you consider betting on Manchester United in this match? The best reason would be because Manchester United is playing lights out right now, having gone 10-0-1 over their last 11 matches including an emphatic 3-0 shutout win over Fulham on Saturday. Paul Pogba scored a pair of goals while Anthony Martial scored once in the decisive win. Another god reason to back Manchester United is the fact that they have an elite defense that has allowed just four goals in six Champions League matches this season.
Why Bet On PSG?
Why should you consider betting on PSG in this matchup? The best reason to back Paris Saint German is that they’re playing well right now, having won two straight and six of their last seven French Ligue 1 matches, including a hard-fought 2-1over Bordeaux on Saturday that saw Edinson Cavani score the only goal of the match. Unfortunately, Cavani was taken off the pitch with a thigh injury after finding the back of the net at the 42-minute mark.
An even better reasons to back PSG is because they’ve been the better team at both ends of the pitch in scoring 17 goals and allowing just 9 in six Champions League matches this season. While PSG is still without superstar striker Neymar, they do have midfielder Marco Verratti back after he returned from an ankle injury to suit up against Bordeaux.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
I’m going to get right to the point with my pick on this match by saying that PSG is clearly the ‘better’ team in this affair, but Manchester United is playing at home and they’ve been playing quite well lately. PSG has gone a stupendous 19-2-1 to sit in first place in the French Ligue while Manchester United has gone a more pedestrian 15-6-5 in the English Premier League to own fourth place. With all of that said, I’m going to urge you to go with the draw in this one.
