The Red Devils made it to the semi-finals of the Europa in their 2019-20 and edged out with winners Sevilla. PSG made it to the Champions League finals and lost to Bayern Munich.
Ole Gunnar’s return to Champions League could not come at a difficult time for the Red Devils. However, their recent results could spell a bit of optimism for the side entering into the match. The side went into last years’ clash as the underdogs in March 2019. The United squad travelled to the French capital for the second leg of the competition of the last 16 having gone 2-0 down at Old Trafford.
A 3-1 victory over Paris secured a ticket for Man United into the quarter-finals. A controversial last-minute penalty by Marcus Rashford ended the dreams of Tuchel of making it to the quarter-finals. The win earned Ole Gunnar a full-time role at Old Trafford.
