Can Manchester United overturn a two-goal deficit or will the Parisians cruise through to the next round?

"Mountains are there to be climbed", these were the words of Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his side lost 2-0 to Paris Saint Germain at the Theatre of Dreams a couple of weeks ago.

One of the favourites to win the competition this year, Paris Saint Germain is in red hot form coming into this fixture with eight victories on the trout, one of the opponents being Manchester United, since their away loss to Olympique Lyon.

The Parisians will be hoping for another clinical performance as they look to enter into the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

"We feel invincible" is what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after Manchester United came from behind to defeat Southampton in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are not short on confidence and remain confident of defeating the French giants even though they are ravaged by injuries to their key players.

Ole Gunnar Solsjaer will need his side to showcase the best game under his management yet if they are to beat Paris Saint Germain at their home.

A goal each in the second half from Presnel Kimpembe and Kyllian Mbappe settled the score 2-0 in favour of Paris Saint Germain in the first leg of the round of 16 match at the Theatre of Dreams.
