PSG will win the Champions League, insists Neymar

Woodward joined those paying tribute to former youth team coach Eric Harrison, who died on Thursday aged 81, describing his passing as "especially poignant" for Manchester United and underlining the club's commitment to young players.

The Manchester United vs PSG Champions League Round of 16 matchup will air on TNT at 3 p.m. EST.

Angel Di Maria continues to dominate the headlines after helping PSG claim a 2-0 win at former club Manchester United on Tuesday night.

There had been fears that they could lose him to Real Madrid, but those doubts have now been eased after Los Blancos signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer. With options such as Romelu Lukaku, Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez to come on, the situation did not seem so bad at first.

"But I've said it in the past and I reiterate it, I never spoke badly of the people here and of this club". "It will be hard and it's a mountain to climb but it's not impossible".

"Of course it's a reality check you can see the strength they have, but we want to get to that level". He needs some love and he's the one Ole has to work on.

As if Solskjaer's men were not already facing a mountain to climb on March 6, Pogba will miss the trip to the French capital after picking up a late second booking to compound injuries to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

"PSG will be Champions League champion", he said in an interview with Red Bull.

Neville gives them little chance of turning the tie on its head, with it likely that the hosts will have Edinson Cavani back in their side by then - even if Brazilian superstar Neymar will still be sidelined. Ahead of the rematch at Parc des Princes, PSG will be feeling much better, after being demoralized for missing two or three important players.

Woodward says he thinks United, who have reached the fifth round of the FA Cup and are now fourth in the Premier League, above Chelsea and Arsenal, will now have "a strong finish to the season".

Alves saw a deflected strike flash just wide as the Ligue 1 champions looked to extend their advantage, with Ander Herrera striking just wide of Buffon's far post as United appeared to regain composure.
