Football tips: Goals galore expected in our 12/1 Same Game Multi for PSG v Man Utd

United return to Paris for the first time since THAT last 16 match in 2019.

Comments

There’s a gorgeous level of duality in this fixture between Manchester United and PSG, you know.

One team that’s been a serial winner for so long and an organically massive club coming up against a purchased legacy who, up until the turn of the millennium, were little more than a footnote in French football. But now, PSG are one league triumph away from claiming the record for most Ligue 1 titles.

Manchester United? Their brand is solidified but their success is limited and that period of flux is troubling. It gorgeously leads to United being the good guys and the underdogs in an environment where they, for so long, were top dogs.

PSG’s early-season troubles can be put down to the pandemic, while Manchester United’s can be put down to being Manchester United.

Funnily, United’s primary reason for stagnation is because of the permanent appointment of their manager – an appointment that was cemented after a huge result against whom? Why, PSG of course.

And thus we’ve come full circle. Here’s a a Same Game Multi for Tuesday’s game.

Over 3.5 Goals

I have a very defined sense of what way this game is going to go, and it’s based around the idea that midfield players will get about ten touches combined throughout the 90.

Both teams play through the channels and while the six may occasionally dip in and out of play for a one-two before freeing forwards playing wide, they generally won’t be involved in the build-up.

Both goalkeepers will be busy a side who can’t defend facing a team who simply don’t, it looks like being a thriller. I was genuinely tempted to go over 4.5, but we’ll play the percentages for now.

Man United to Have Five or More Shots on Target

This does seem like a lot to most people, but when people think of shots on target, they think of chances.

Folks, if Nemanja Matic, for whatever demented reason, thinks he’s releasing one from 55 yards and it rolls into the keeper’s arms, it’s a shot on a target.

Now, think of the amount of chances United will get two-v-two in a game like this. It’s more likely to happen than not happen in my book, and I think this is a very fair price.

Whether United score, of course, is anyone’s guess – but based on the level of finishing we saw at Newcastle, it’s entirely possible.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka to be Booked

I mean, there’s probably not a safer bet in all of this than Wan-BIssaka to be too ambitious going forward and having one of PSG’s nine top-end wingers running in behind him, only for him to leg it back 40 yards at full pelt and drag him down.

United will then go on to concede from a set-piece and Harry Maguire will turn and blame everyone around him, while looking like he’s going through a low-level existential crisis.
