Manchester United v PSG (2000 GMT - BT Sport 2)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy to work with the squad he currently has
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had an amazing start in charge

A lot can change in a short space of time in football and the big gap between the Champions League last 16 draw and the first game of the knockout stages has put a completely different complexion on this tie.

Jose Mourinho's United were given next to no chance of upsetting PSG's expensively-assembled side, but the tables have turned and even just having United favourites to win the first leg at Old Trafford is something of a victory.

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer's unbeaten start has transformed the Red Devils and, over in Paris, star man Neymar has been ruled out of both legs and Edinson Cavani is a big doubt for the first game at least with a thigh injury.

So the way things have been going, United are rightly favoured to take a first leg lead although PSG are favourites to progress, and that sounds about right given the extra experience in their side and having the second leg in Paris.

But United are dangerous, make no mistake. PSG were largely impressive in the group stages but showed at Anfield that their defence is susceptible to pace and movement, so the likes of Martial and Rashford are well capable of doing some damage.

On the flip side, with Kylian Mbappe leading the line and Angel Di Maria returning to Old Trafford with a point to prove, the visitors are well capable of scoring - there should be goals in this one and it has all the makings of an entertaining score draw to me.

Prediction: Manchester United 2-2 PSG (Sky Bet odds: 11/1)

Best bet: Both teams to score & over 3.5 goals at 7/4


Roma v Porto (2000 GMT - BT Sport 3)

Roma beat Barcelona 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico

Porto have a 26-game unbeaten run behind them as they head to Rome to face last year's beaten semi-finalists, but the Italians look likely to do a job on them and at a best-priced 11/10 just to win the first leg that's looking the best bet of the night.

Having won five Champions League games in a row, Porto will arrive in high spirits but Roma are well tested at this level as regulars in the knockout stages and last season's run to the last four will be fresh in their minds.

The Stadio Olimpico is a tough place to go and play, just ask Liverpool and Barcelona, and there's just too much nous and experience within the Italian side to see anything else but a home win here.

They'll be keen to grab any kind of lead to take into the second leg, and with Edin Dzeko around, goals are a real possibility.

Prediction: Roma 2-1 Porto (Sky Bet odds: 8/1 )

Best bet: Roma to win at 11/10
