One man who knows what it is like to play in big games for both Manchester United and PSG is striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a man who was an icon at both clubs. The big Swede scored over 100 goals for the French side and was a key part in Man Utd winning the Europa League and League Cup in 2016.
Now Ibra is banging the goals in for LA Galaxy in the MLS, but told Fox Sports that he would have a keen interest in tonight’s Champions League game. Despite United’s staggering run of form which has seen them win ten of their last eleven games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ibrahimovic has backed the Parisians to come out on top.
“PSG is playing against a team that is in their moment now so anything can happen with United, whoever they play against.
"If you had asked me before they had this moment, I would say OK, so PSG are favourites but now I think it’s difficult.
But I think PSG are little favourites because of the players they have."
Having said that, star men Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier are all out of the first leg at Old Trafford which does damage the PSG side. They are now be relying on young star Kylian Mbappe to provide the firepower as they look to bag that all-important away goal heading into the second leg.
Ibra was keen to point out he had no preference for either of his former sides.
"But whoever wins, I’m the winner. So whoever goes through I will still have my team in the Champions League. So I’m OK, either way, it goes."
