Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is confident his side can go to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United in the Champions League. United have been drawn against the French giants for the first time in the competition and PSG are confident they can get a result in the first leg on February 12. "We are able to win at Old Trafford, I trust my team," Tuchel told reporters ahead of their game with US Orleans. "The Champions League is a tough competition, there are only big teams. It's important to make serious matches, it would be a big mistake to think only of this match against Manchester United." Meanwhile United's representative in Nyon, Switzerland, where the draw took place, was Denis Irwin and he didn't sound particularly confident about coming up against the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. "With the team they've got at the moment it's a very interesting draw for us," Irwin told BT Sport. "There's still two months to go before. They're a top team. We've already seen that. … [Read more...] about Paris Saint-Germain react to Man Utd Champions League draw

Manchester United will be drawn against one of Europe's best teams in the last 16 of the Champions League as they are in the unseeded pot on Monday. United confirmed passage through to the knockout stages on match-day five after edging past Young Boys, but missed the chance to finish top of Group H when they lost to Valencia in their final group game. That meant Jose Mourinho's men finished second and are among the unseeded teams in Monday's draw. They will face one of Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, PSG, Porto, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. United will also play the first leg of their last 16 tie at home. Had they finished first they could have faced Atletico Madrid, Schalke, Ajax, Lyon or Roma. They will not face Manchester City or Juventus as clubs cannot play teams from the same country or from the same group. While United will be hoping to draw Porto in the draw, they are more likely to face a difficult test against a fellow giant of European football such as Barcelona. Monday's … [Read more...] about Man Utd Champions League last 16 draw predictor
Juventus vs Manchester UnitedUefa Champions League 2018/19 Cristiano Ronaldo will get another chance to score against his former club as Juventus and Manchester United face off in Turin tonight. Juve star Ronaldo could not find the net on his Old Trafford return in matchday 3, but Paulo Dybala's goal handed the Italian champions a richly deserved 1-0 victory in Manchester to take control of Group H. With Juve almost certain to top the group, Jose Mourinho knows United - second in the table with four points (two ahead of Valencia) - are playing for the runners-up spot. Although a defeat could see the Red Devils slip out of the qualification spots with two games to play, United still have a last-16 spot in their hands at this point.

Manchester United's fixture dates for the 2018/19 Champions League campaign have been confirmed. Jose Mourinho and his side will face Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys in Group H of this year's competition. United kick off their Champions League campaign with a trip to Switzerland on 19 September, with the game sandwiched in between trips to face Watford and Wolves in the Premier League. The team also face a tricky juggling act when they face group favourites Juventus, with the home leg on 23 October just three days after a trip to face Chelsea in the league. United's away trip to the Juventus Stadium is also awkwardly timed, with the fixture due to take place just four days prior to the first Manchester derby of the season. It doesn't get any easier for Mourinho and his side, with their final group game away against Valencia coming just three days before an away trip to face Liverpool in the league.

Manchester United will face Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys in Group H of the Champions League group stages this season. The headline tie will see Ronaldo return to Old Trafford for only the second time since leaving for Real Madrid in 2009, where the Portuguese star scored in both legs of the round of 16 tie. The Reds, who were knocked out by Sevilla at the same stage last season, have won five of their 12 competitive games against Juventus, the last of which came in the round of 16 in 2003. The Old Trafford outfit have beaten Valencia twice in eight meetings and last faced the La Liga side in the group stages of the 2010/11 season. Young Boys will present a new challenge for Jose Mourinho's side, with United having never faced the Swiss outfit in a competitive fixture before. Mourinho has won the Champions League on two occasions as a manager, in 2004 and 2010 with Porto and Chelsea respectively. The first matchday of this season’s Champions League will … [Read more...] about Man Utd Champions League group revealed
