Manchester United’s Champions League hopes hang in the balance after a defeat in the first-leg and it doesn’t get any easier as they travel to Paris with an injury list as long as the Eiffel Tower is tall.
Meanwhile, Porto and Roma have a much closer tie ahead after the Italian side’s victory in the first-leg, but 2004 winners grabbed an away goal which could be vital come the end of the match.

PSG to win and both teams to score @ 11/5 – BET NOW
PSG were dominant last month at Old Trafford to secure a vital 2-0 away win allowing them to put one foot firmly into the next round.
The Parisians look to have already secured back-to-back Ligue 1 titles and their sixth in the last seven years, so Champions League glory is their priority.
Neymar is still on the side lines, but the French side brushed aside United with just one of their attacking trio on the pitch – the scintillating Kylian Mbappe.
But PSG have history in bottling it in the Champions League. Let’s not forget that the French side threw away a 4-0 lead against Barcelona back in 2017.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to be the first manager to mastermind becoming the first manager in the competition’s history to overturn a two-goal deficit from the home leg.
Paul Pogba is suspended for this match while the injury list racks up thanks to Alexis Sanchez’s knee ligament problem sustained against Southampton at the weekend.
The Chileans follows Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic on the side lines.
PSG, on the other hand, could welcome back Edinson Cavani after returning to training recently.
It’s hard to see anything but a PSG win in this match and the bookies believe so too as man United can be found at a best-price of 11/1 thanks to their growing injury list and unlikely hood of beating PSG in their own backyard.
But PSG have conceded in 10 out of their last 11 in the Champions League matches – when added to a PSG win you can find a best-price of 11/5 which looks like incredible value considering the circumstances.
Porto to win @ 2.08 - BET NOW
If watching the French Galaticos against one of the biggest clubs in the world isn’t your fancy, then Porto and Roma could tickle your itch for European football.
Porto have a 2-1 deficit to overturn, but the value looks good for the Portuguese side to progress to the next round.
Roma aren’t the same side that got to the semi-finals last season mainly due to the departure of keeper Alisson to Liverpool.
Roma have leaked 15 goals away from home in their last five matches and have only kept three clean sheets in their previous 12 matches in all competitions.
However, Porto go into this match after losing to their closest rivals Benfica in O Clássico to drop of the summit of the Primeira Liga table.
Os Dragoes have scored in all of their 21 homes games across all competitions which will give them the confidence against a leaky Roma defence.
Malian striker Moussa Marega returns to the team after missing the first-leg through injury. His five goals were crucial for the Portuguese side in progressing into the knock-out phase.
Porto are decent value for a win considering that they have won five of their last six at home and with 2.08 to be found on the exchange, the selection looks ripe for your bets slip.
