Champions League Round Of 16 Second Leg
Le Parc des Princes
I would go along with that team @jsp. Have there been any indications that Martial will be fit? I think without Pogba then we really need Martial to have any sort of chance. On paper against a world class side then that midfield has the potential to be ripped to shreds. Will be quite the lesson for the likes of McT and Pereira.
Obviously if we win this and go through then it’ll be one of the great European nights. If we had nicked a goal at home and Pogba didn’t get sent off then we would have had a shot but I just can’t see how we can stop PSG scoring. We are probably going to have to win 3-1 or 4-2 to go through.
If we even compete tonight then it’ll be an achievement.Could be a bit of a pounding tonight, with no midfield to talk of.

I do wonder if we will go 3-5-2 to try and shore things up in the middle. Then just try and hit them with the pace and power of Rashford and Lukaku but saying that PSG have no reason to come out and play expansively.
Not saying for one second that our team tonight will be anything near the quality of the Barcelona team in question, but we all remember how PSG bottled it and Barcelona went through in 2017.
Just really trying hard to be positive about the game tonight, Cavani and Neymar both fit to play - im thinking a 2-2 draw tonight. which we should be proud of.
I think the difference is PSG were 4-1 up and the tide went against them away from home and the refs absolutely screwed them with some very soft calls.
I'd take a battling 2-2 for me the games a write off hopefully just get out without being embarrassed if I'm totally honest.
Are you sure they're fit? Pretty sure both of them are ruled out
Having just looked again, im seeing mixed reports about the pair of them now ?! mate of mine told me they heard on the radio that both are back and likely to play.
I think whether they are both back or not we are going to struggle and PSG dont have to force anything.
No offence to the lad but when you compare Mctominay to Verratti, we have a problem when that could be a midfield battle.
Goes back to the fact that without Pogba we are a different team.
I'm 100% that Neymar is out but I think Cavani was rumoured to be close to being back but doubt they'd risk him.
I mean out best XI held it's own against them for 45 minutes at home but after that we were outclassed I think they're too good for us even with the first team available.
I actually think this PSG team might be better without Neymar as they play more as a team and less towards him.
