Paris Saint-Germain are on the verge of a famous UEFA Champions League triumph as they welcome Manchester United to the Parc des Princes holding a two-goal lead for the conclusion of their round of 16 tie.

The Reds are trailing in the tie after second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe at Old Trafford in the first leg three weeks ago.

Paris Saint-Germain Team News

The French champions remain without talismanic striker Neymar due to a metatarsal injury suffered during their Coupe de France victory over Strasbourg in January.

Fellow forward Edinson Cavani missed the game at Old Trafford due to a hip injury and, while the Parisians hope to have the Uruguayan back in training before the clash, it remains unlikely that he will start on Wednesday night.

Thomas Meunier was out between 9 and 26 February with a head injury but returned to score the third goal in their 3-0 French Cup quarter-final win over Dijon.

Manchester United Team News

Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba, who is suspended for the trip to his homeland after picking up two yellow cards in the first leg three weeks ago. With Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic expected to miss the game though injury, Scott McTominay, Fred and Andreas Pereira will all be in contention for a place.

Ahead of them, Alexis Sanchez looks likely to miss Wednesday’s match after he picked up a knee injury during the 3-2 win against Southampton. Ole has also confirmed that Anthony Martial may well be unavailable for the clash, after injuring his hamstring against Liverpool.

Juan Mata has already suggested in his weekly blog that he will not feature in the French capital and Jesse Lingard is also set to remain sidelined. However, in more positive news, the Reds will be able to call upon Marcus Rashford at the Parc de Princes after the striker recovered from an ankle injury to play 90 minutes against Southampton on Saturday.
