United 13-2 for victory at PSG with ten on sidelines

Manchester United are 20-1 with bet365 to overturn their first-leg two-goal deficit against Paris St-Germain at the Parc des Princes, but injuries and suspensions have played havoc with their preparation.

The Red Devils were soundly beaten 2-0 by PSG at Old Trafford on February 12 and were initially installed at 16-1 to book their place in the quarter-finals at the expense of the French outfit.

But things have gone from bad to worse in the United camp with Paul Pogba suspended and another nine senior players on the treatment table.

Alexis Sanchez is the latest Manchester United man to be ruled out and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirming that the Chilean faces up to six weeks out with a knee injury picked up in Saturday’s 3-2 Premier League win over Southampton.

Sanchez joins first-teamers Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Matteo Darmian, Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia on the sidelines and United could have a youthful look to them when squaring up in the French capital.

Teenage quintet Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and James Garner have travelled to Paris and, although they are unlikely to figure prominently, bookmakers have still taken a dim view on Solskjaer's resources.

The Red Devils, who have lost their last two Champions League matches, are 13-2 with Ladbrokes to win in 90 minutes having been a 5-1 chance with the same firm on Sunday.

The draw is 4-1 from 10-3, with PSG, despite missing talisman Neymar through injury, all the rage. The best price available is the 19-40 with Betway.

Key stats
  • Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his last seven starts for Aston Villa.
Expert verdict
Aston Villa have lost just two of their last 15 matches and valid excuses can be made for both defeats. Dean Smith made wholesale changes with the playoffs in mind for their 2-1 loss to champions Norwich on the final day, while they lost the second leg of semi-final at West Brom despite having 73 per cent possession and winning the shot count 24 to ten. They are full of confidence and should be more determined than ever after last season’s playoff final heartbreak.
