Manchester United vs. Paris Saint-Germain

PSG's priority this season is to win the Champions League, but they travelled to Manchester for the first leg of their last-16 tie without Neymar, Cavani and Thomas Meunier because of injury:

Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon told Becky Anderson and James Masters at CNN that the absence of Neymar, who has scored 20 goals already this season, will be an issue for the Ligue 1 side.

"I think this is a problem for us. I'm not sure if it's a big problem or a little one. I hope it's only a small problem and that we are nevertheless a team that can thrive without him, it would give us great strength and confidence."

Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler are expected to join Kylian Mbappe in attack for the game at Old Trafford.

Mbappe has three goals and four assists in the Champions League this season and boasts an excellent record in the competition:

However, Manchester United are flying high since sacking Jose Mourinho and bringing in Solskjaer, and there is a feel-good factor around Old Trafford currently.

The Norwegian has restored Manchester United's attacking style of play, which has brought the best out of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford:

Victor Lindelof is also thriving in defence after a tough start to his United career and returned to training ahead of the game after missing Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham:

Manchester United are yet to taste defeat under Solskjaer and will fancy their chances against a depleted PSG side. The Red Devils go into the game in strong form and with huge momentum, which should give them the edge.

   

AS Roma vs. FC Porto

Roma made headlines last season with their extraordinary second-leg comeback against Barcelona. The Giallorossi reached the semi-finals by winning the return leg 3-0 to progress on away goals.

The Serie A side were eventually dumped out by Liverpool but have another chance to make an impression on the knockout stages this season.

Manager Eusebio Di Francesco has spoken of the importance of not conceding an away goal on Tuesday:

Roma head into the match after ending a run of three games without a win on Friday against Chievo. The capital club won 3-0 with goals from Stephan El Shaarawy, Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolarov.

Porto are likely to prove difficult opponents. Sergio Conceicao's side cruised through the group stages with 16 points from a possible 18.

Tuesday's visitors are unbeaten in their last five Champions League away matches and will fancy taking something from the Stadio Olimpico.

They will have to cope without two key players. Jesus Corona misses out because of suspension, while Moussa Marega has been ruled out with injury, per Football Italia:

Porto have dropped points in their last two league games but have been impressive in Europe this season, and as group winners, they will be expected to progress.
