When UEFA Champions League football resumes this week, it resumes to a lot of questions fans are asking.
During the first leg, teams that won didn’t do so by a large score margin. The biggest margin recorded was Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund.
Every other score line recorded from the first leg was much smaller. Some did not even have any goals in them.
This means there’s still a lot to fight for when the second leg of Round of 16 games resume. With qualification at stake, there are a lot of questions, one of which concerns teams heading into the return leg with a deficit.

One of such teams is Manchester United.
On the local scene, the Red Devils are still very much in contention for a top-four finish. Manchester United remains undefeated in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian has also been able to push Man. Utd far in the FA Cup.
However, the Red Devils were forced to a first defeat under Ole when PSG visited Old Trafford in February. Undone by one of their former players, Man. Utd now have to make things work, in a stadium away from home.
The Mancunians can bank on the famous ‘Away Goal’ rule. Should it be a high-scoring encounter, the English side can come out on top, thanks to this rule. They’re up against a side that conceded four goals in three UCL home games this season.
Sounds like good preparation for the trip to Paris.

While keeping an eye on scoring goals, Manchester United will be wary of conceding even more goals.
PSG remain the highest goal-scorers in this year’s UCL. Joint top with Manchester City, they’ve scored 19 goals so far this season, an average of almost three goals per game.
Although most of those goals were scored with Neymar in the squad, they’ve shown just what they can do without the Brazilian.
While there’s Di Maria, there’s also the boy who could go on to become the new Pele. Kylian Mbappe has shown just how much he can do, most importantly, by himself.
His goal in the first leg was his fourth of the season. And he will surely be looking for more when both sides clash in the return leg.
Can both sides score in this return fixture?

For PSG, they just need to avoid defeat by a two-goal margin.
For Manchester United, it’s make-or-break season. They need to go all out while watching their backs.
