50 min: Lindelof is the newest player to enter the book to pull Mbappe. Now these are three in number.
49 minutes: The young pearls go right to Rashford, who goes into space before being stopped by Thiago Silva. Rashford once or twice with Mata, then moved a cross into anyone's box.
47 min: Lindeloff rushed into the back of Mob. There is no foul. Then Rashford seemed to be kidnapped by the already reserved Kimpeme. Not a foul about it! This referee was happy in the first half; it seems he takes more non-interference in private initiatives approach for the second.
And we're off again! Manchester United gets the second half. They will be pushed to Stretford End after making the second night's change during the break: Martial can not continue and he is replaced by Mata.
HALF: Manchester United 0-0 PSG
And that's for the first half. Not much in the way the criminal field worked, but it was a fun, end-to-end fun. Expect more 45! "United must resist Sanchez halfway," says Mark Coward. "In the first half he did nothing.
45 min +4: It seems that Lingard can not continue. He has retained his left mutilation. A few minutes ago Sanchez had prepared to come to a battleground, but instead he was already taking Ligard's place.
45 min +2: Dani Alves fired a free kick over the bar, de Gea behind him.
45 minutes: United easily clears the corner and rises up. Verratti snore at Martial, who looks hilarious to put an end to the break. The PSG opposes the counter and Matic takes Draxler to the left of D; direct free kick. Between the times, Lingard goes through and requires some treatment. A few minutes to go before we get into a free kick. The two minutes of the added time will start effectively now, reports ref.
44 minutes: Di Maria and Bernat combine well on the left, turning Bélii and Yang that way. Lingard is forced to follow back and recognize the corner.
42 minutes: Yang wins to the right. Nothing happens. Di Maria returns to the playground to a chorus of boss. This is a lot of octane fun if it is not particularly full of quality gameplay.
40 min: It all begins when Mabp misses the left to pursue Di Maria. This is not a good pass and Di Maria never gets to him before he leaves the game. But Di Maria and Yang were going in full swing. The young man unnecessarily pushes Di Maria off the pitch and into the wall around the field. Ooyah, oof. Everyone gets involved in a heated discussion, but the referee does nothing. The young man may be happy to run away from the second yellow – this is certainly what he wanted to see the PSG players – while Diana is out of the pitch and his hand is looked at, the result of this awkward fall.
39 min: The fighter relaxed, feeling mutilated. I'm not sure if he can continue. Sanchez, warming the line, returns to the bench.
37 minutes: Attenuation. Then suddenly PSG comes alive! Verratti throws the ball down in the middle to split United's defense in two. Baba and Maria are clear! Mbappe refuses to Di Maria, which is not the right decision, as he is ambushed while the striker is not. Di Maria tries to bypass de Gea from outside and runs it, but then fails to reach the open network, inexplicable allowing Gea to get together. In fact, the hosts enjoy his failure. Maria is very pleased to see the flag rise, so his thought does not matter, but PSG has made the right balls of it.
34 minutes: Yes, there is a good chance that it will not end with 22 men on the pitch. Now Bernat is the one who enters the referee's notebook, a penalty for running with a great feeling for the young as the two 50-50 straight line challenges. Five more bookings now!
32 minutes: Swallow slid through the damp grass, and almost fell into Tihao Silva. In a few seconds, Shaw threw himself into Kimpembe as he tried to get around to the left. The Referee sees no challenge as a foul, which is probably right, as well as a good one, since both the crap and the kimpembe have already been reserved. They should turn her back a little.
31 minutes: Maria turns it into a mixer. Lindelof heads clearly. But Parisian fans continue to make the most of their noise as their team begins to gain control over (although there is no much in him).
30 minutes: Mabp is hunted after a long transition from the left, and he has returned unceremoniously from Young. This is a clear reservation and free hit for the PSG on the line. They load the box in preparation.
28 minutes: Mabup was silent, but suddenly he was alive. Verratti, rising from the depth, casts a pass on the inner right channel, to which Draxler immediately helped. Suddenly, Mob is free in the area! But he never controlled and hits a shot to the right as he backed away, and De Geha found himself in his grille. An assumption that Mabpi could have been a centimeter or a half ambush; He was a messenger of the VAR truck's spike if he had entered.
27 minutes: Mbpp puts jets and almost passes along Linelof. The United Defender stood in his queue, doing enough to force Mabp into a heavy touch to stop his gallop. But for a second United seemed to be exposed by the pace of Mbappe.
25 minutes: More nerves as Vertatti returns to his own area and is almost stripped of Rashford. The shot of the blow with a blow from a torch, Verratti outside the door. Then the same player is kicked out of Pugba and you know what this referee thinks. Yellow card. There is now a fair chance that this will not end 11 against 11, not that it is a particularly dirty game.
24 minutes: Lingard one and two with Rashford on the right and suddenly he races in the PSG half which contains only one defender! He has Martilles on the other wing, but just as the crowd gets excited, he plays a terrible pass behind Martial and does not play to the left. The two sides look a little shaken right now.
22 minutes: Pugba presses his glove against Marguinos' mouth as the couple fights in the middle of the field. This is a free kick and the UK midfielder is lucky that the referee does not blink a map in his net. Perhaps it helped Marguinos, who came down in a theatrical style.
21 min: The 4000 fans of PSG give it muchTheir heroes pinged for some time, their first period of lasting possession. Vertati then tries to release the Mabi on the inside left, but the pass is too strong and takes off for a goal. On the line, Thomas Tuccel throws semaphore figures in great anger with his own players.
19 minutes: Now Draxler is reserved for a clip on Herrera's heels. This was not the biggest challenge you'll ever see, but this reflex does not bring any crap.
18 minutes: Young people continue to be inconvenience to the right. He sends a lovely cross that almost finds Linggard, but the ball is thrown off by United's striker, six feet from Kimpeme. This is such an important decision. The ball goes out to the left; from this Pogba flames wildly from a distance.
16 min: Pugba leaves along Kimpembe to the south and reaches the line. He shoots with a low ball to Linggard in the nearby post. Buffon is doing very well to get down and burst under heavy pressure. Thiago Silva goes into battle with Lingard and is not particularly happy about it, but he just tells him to deal with him.
15 minutes: That's a little shy. Young shoots Kimpembe, who feeds from clearing from the left rear position. But the ball goes to Buffon.
13 min: In the middle of the park, a few scarves of Marguinos and Verrays descend. It is long before they are challenged by Matice, something the United States will have to consider sooner rather than later. The PSG seems confident when they move forward.
11 minutes: Rushford's quick legs in the center of the park force Kimpeme to pull him back. This is the first booking of the tie and one of PSG's central defenders who are already stepping on egg shells.
10 minutes: PSG transferred it for a while. Then Buffon breaks a simple way to Bernat, who stands on the left. Many ironic applause welcome this.
8 minutes: Good work from Young on the right when he combines with Lingard to win a little seat. Then he fired Rashford on the wing; His shot is renamed from Bernat and headed to the upper right corner. Buffon turns the ball into a circle, which leads to nothing. Meanwhile, here is Justin Cavana: "I read this morning how these Gordon Bans' food rumors, which were poisoned in the 1970's, were never completely absent. And then was the scandalous water incident in Italy 90 when Branco was acquired by Argentina. Do you think that in the future VAR will be hacked to send false judges' directives during matches? Or will the hackers change the video, so the handballs look more obvious in the area? Or will it just make the tea cups sent to the transit van? How do players break the rules in the digital age? I imagine Mourinho works on this issue while we talk.
6 minutes: The first serious effort for the purpose of the evening, and this is by Di Maria, which seems to shrink to the upper right of 25 yards on the left. He always tilts wide, but it is not certain that De Gea would have his fingertips if he had bent in a different way at the top corner.
5 minutes: Rashford is surrounded by a central circle and suddenly four white shirts are running across United. But a loose pass allows United to resist, Rashford attempting to free Lingard in the area on the right. Not exactly. But this is wonderful, open, exciting, from start to finish start of the game.
3 minutes: Angel Di Maria, the once-signed United Record, continues to walk to the left. The roof is almost slipping away as the bird is given to him by his old fans. He did not have a good time at Old Trafford.
2 minutes: Bernat sneaks from the left but is easily robbed of Matich, who leaves Linggard on the territory of the PSG. Lingard is raised in the back by Marquinhos, who is happy to avoid booking for his cynicism. The free kick is nothing.
And we're off! Against the backdrop of the real bump, the PSG started the party. And they quickly retreated, United quickly and firmly stepped out of the blocks, Lingard and Young almost cut Kimpembe in possession near a flag with a right-hand corner. They press too hard and a free kick releases the pressure, but what an early statement about United intentions!
RIP Emiliano and Gordon. Before we start, there is one minute applause about the tragic Emiliano Sala and England goalkeeper of the 1966 World Cup, Gordon Banks, who died today.
The teams are out! Manchester United brings his famous red shirts with black upholstery while PSG sports the second white. There is a good European atmosphere at Old Trafford, as you expect when two of the biggest clubs in Europe are preparing for a place in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. It seems that Tiago Silva has not taken the stamps of his pennant through this crap, while in other news items, our picture editor confirms that this really is another unnecessary stitch under the UK Flag logo of the United Kingdom. So I apologize for having some trouble about the quality of the embroidery. Anyway, we'll be out in a minute!
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – calm, smile, impressive, and as pleasant as ever – talks to BT Sport. "I do not think we could be in a better form of thinking in this game or in better shape. So we look forward to this. Hoping that we can start well, that will be important. We have prepared without Neimar, Cavan, and Meynie, but I think the crowd would be glad to see these players, and as players who would prefer to play against the best, we would enjoy their best team. Bailly and Lindelof are doing well together, and against Mbappe they will have to be at the top of their game. We have to be clinical. It is important for us to get to Paris with the opportunity to pass. "
VAR will be used for the first time in the Champions League tonight. The whole set and box is placed at the rear of the Transit carriage in the Old Trafford parking lot that will send a cold throat down the backbone to anyone sitting in the ITV's early evening light entertainment program Premiere of the Day, the Wade Judge Big Man Hugh Dallas is interviewed in the truck by BT Sport, waving a brochure that explains in words and good pictures that VAR's team will "constantly check for clear and obvious mistakes about the following four situations that change the match: goals, incidents in the field, in red is a map and the wrong identity. By the way, the feed cut out and the screen went black just 16.3 seconds after the interview. We hope that this is not a precursor to future things.
Clock with a pen. So what will Ashley Young and Thiago Silva exchange when they shake before they start? The commemorative flag of Manchester United is thoroughly embroidered, right up to ® in the immediate vicinity of the crest, is certainly an unnecessary legal guarantee for what is essentially a gift to another football club. A good commodity, though you do not pull this wide thread at the bottom of the Champions League logo, or the whole thing can unravel. (Unless this is another ®, in which case choose.)
PSG's paddle is not so exquisite. Perhaps a clearer, clearer design, but without the greatness of United's efforts. Let's hope the tassels do not drag through this sticky tape to the right.
Ole Gunnar Solskayer makes five changes to the Manchester United team, which was announced in Fulham on Saturday. Ashley Young, Eric Byyly, Victor Lindelof, Jesse Linggard and Mark Rashford are coming; they are replacing Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Chris Malling, Juan Matta and Romulus Lukaku.
Thomas Tuchel made six changes to the PSG XI, selected for scrapping against Bordeaux in League One over the weekend. Single John Cavani and Thomas Mönnie took injuries; they were replaced by Thilo Kehrer and Kylian Mbappe. Meanwhile, Stanley Hoodie, Erik Maxim Choupo-Moting, Christopher Nunku and Mousa Diabby make way for Marguinos, Angel Di Maria, Juan Bernat and Julian Draxler.
Manchester United: de Gea, Young, Bailie, Lindeloff, Shaw, Erera, Matic, Pogba, Linggard, Martyall, Rashford.
Subs: Romero, Jones, Sanchez, Mata, Lukaku, Fred, Dalot.
Paris Saint-Germain: Buffon, Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Vertatti, Marquinhos, Danny Alves, Draxler, Di Maria, Mob.
Submarines: Areola, Paredes, Chupo-Moting, Curzava, Nunku, Diabi, Dagba.
Referee: Daniele Orsato (Italy).
The world was a different place on December 17th. Jose Mourinho was still Manchester United manager for another 24 hours, and when the 16th Champions League was made, everything seemed to be the three-time winner. They were paired with Paris Saint-Germain, they were doing fine weapons while United was badly overlooked. Humility seemed a very real opportunity.
But in a few months everything has changed. Ole Gunnar Solsjkær has rebuilt United's self-esteem in the spectacular style, winning 11 of his first 12 matches as a temporary boss. Paul Pugba and Anthony Marttiall despise. PSG meanwhile are at the height of the injury crisis. It is not expected that Oneon Cavani would shake off the thigh problem, Thomas Mönnie is shaken, and Neimar is out with a broken metatarsal wound. And their shape is not all that suddenly: they recently lost their first season match to Lyon, and they needed extra time to move through the third round of the Villefranche-Beaujol in the bowl.
United will pick up a glass for all this; now they are favorites to take advantage of the initiative tonight. Still, they will not count chickens. They won only once at Old Trafford in Europe this season, rolled 1: 0 after "Young Boys", 0-0 with Valencia and lost 1: 0 against Juventus. And they were beaten home at this stage last year from Seville. They will hope that Ole's all-new football will lead to the end of this sticky run. But PSG has its own concerns as it sinks at this stage in the last two seasons, beaten by Real Madrid last year, humiliated by Barcelona's biggest return in 2017.
So here is the business end of the Champions League. He is delighted with traditional giants who host one of the tournament favorites. This is yet another great European evening at Old Trafford. It's on!
Shutdown: 20:00 GMT.
