‘This is fixed!’- Man Utd blows hot over champions League draw


The Champions League draw at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, has concluded but the pick of fixtures has created much debate among fans.

United will be forced to overcome PSG in the competition once again, after providing a heroic victory over the Parisians in March 2019.

United lost 2-0 at home in the first leg but managed to create history in Paris by becoming the first side to go through after losing by a two goal margin at home in the first leg.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s will also have to beat overcome last season’s semi-finalists RB Leipzig in order to progress through the competition.
