Paris Saint-Germain are preparing for a massive game that could affect their whole European season, as they meet Manchester United in a Champions League qualifier, which will determine if they partake in this year's group stage.

After earning three points on Friday over St-Etienne thanks to a first goal for Tabitha Chawinga, which ended the game 1-0 in the Parisanne's favour.

The game on Tuesday, 10th October will be the first leg of this tie.

PSG Predicted line-up

Formation: 4-3-3

Constance Picaud

Karchaoui, De Almeida, Le Guilly, Calligaris

Jean-Francois, Geyoro (C), Groenen

Baltimore, Chawinga, Martens van Leer

The last time the two sides met, it was a 1-0 win for Manchester United. The English have started the WSL season with a win and draw, while PSG have gotten themselves two wins and a loss.

Paris had a tough game a few weeks ago when they played against Lyon, but while they did lose that game 1-0, their performance showed much improvement, the kind that will be key when they face United on Tuesday.

PSG Post prediction

Man United 2-2 PSG

A reminder that this will only be the first half of the tie, which will see a return game on a later date. But, with both sides having more or less the same chance of advancing from this qualifier, the first part of the game seems likely to end in a draw potentially.
