Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, is looking forward to facing PSG and former United defender Rafael da Silva’s Istanbul Basaksehir of Turkey.

 

“Semi-finalists Leipzig and finalists PSG, of course you know you are going to play against good teams but it just shows the challenge we are facing,” Solskjaer said.

 

“How far they have come, and Istanbul almost went to the quarter-finals in the Europa League.

 

“Now they have signed Rafael, it will be a nice little reunion with him. Ander has been a great servant of this club as well so it will be good to see them.”

 

The last meeting between PSG and United in a competitive match was on 16 March 2019.

 

United secured a 3-1 victory over PSG in a Champions League match in France.
