Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Old Trafford for a matchday five fixture in the UEFA Champions League group stage. After The Red Devils 4-1 victory over İstanbul Başakşehir, midfielder Fred spoke with Esporte Interativo to discuss the upcoming match against the capital club.
“Dude, we already know them. We know a lot about these players. I played a lot with Neymar,” Fred said. “Before the game, we try to see a lot of videos of them. Whether the ball exits are to the right or to the left. If they put more speed or less speed in certain movements. We have to be prepared for anything that makes a game. We know they can decide the game at any time. So we’ll have to be alert all the time.”
Fred’s comments might reflect the confidence that Manchester United has when it comes to playing Les Parisiens. After all, they have defeated them in two of the last three meetings, with both wins coming at the Parc des Princes for the English club.
PSG did pick up a win at Old Trafford in the first leg during the 2018-19 Champions League knockout stages. A win for the reigning Ligue 1 champions would see both clubs tied at nine points in Group H, with the potential for three if RB Leipzig picks up a win over Başakşehir.
