However, it’s worth remembering that before the dramatic comeback in 2019 we had lost 2-0 to them at home. We became the first team in European Cup history to overturn a two goal deficit from a home first leg and, given our away form this season, we may be more confident this evening if we were playing at the Parc des Princes.
While Axel Tuanzebe is unavailable for the game, which is a huge blow given how he dealt with the pace of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar last time, we do have something in our favour up front, with Edinson Cavani likely keen to show his former club what they’re missing. After coming off the bench at the weekend to score twice and help turn a 2-0 defeat in to a 3-2 win, he’s certainly in good form. PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, admitted the club may have made a “mistake” in allowing Cavani to leave and he will be up for proving that to be the case.
