Manchester United U23’s v Paris Saint-Germain U23’s: Match preview


Manchester United U23’s welcome PSG U23’s to the Leigh sports village this Friday night, with the Reds looking for their first win in the Premier League International cup this season.

The Red Devils come into this game off the back of a very disappointing result and performance last Friday night in which it ended 0-0 at home to PSV in the same competition. This result leaves United on 2 points, 3 behind current leaders Derby with a game in hand. While the French visitors are laying in bottom place on 1 point.

This game is crucial for both teams considering where they are in the table and a win for either would put them in a good position going forward in the group. Especially for United with two of the three remaining games being away from home for Ricky Sbragia’s side. 

United will be hoping to end a run of four without a win when they welcome the French side in what has been a tough month for Sbragia and his team.

Due to numerous youngsters being given opportunities to train and play in the first team, Ricky Sbragia has had to manage his squad, shuffling them around in the last month.

Sbragia will be hoping to have players Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong available for this crucial game after they both missed last Friday night due to injury. 

This could also be an opportunity for the 18-year-old prolific goal scorer, Mason Greenwood to play in the U23’s, especially after first-team manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Mason is knocking on the door for the first-team.

For the visitors, there may not be any high-profile names playing, but United will have to be at their very best considering the talent the opponents have in their ranks. We know this from the last few years where numerous PSG academy players have been sold over to British sides and have been particularly impressive.
