While Mbappe is odds on to maintain his irrepressible form at the Parc des Princes, Al Hain-Cole sees better value in a former Red Devils player

With Neymar ruled out and Edinson Cavani fighting for fitness, Kylian Mbappe will take centre stage once again when Paris Saint-Germain take on Manchester United in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.

The France international scored the second goal in Les Parisiens’ 2-0 first leg victory at Old Trafford, and is priced at just 15/8 (2.88) with William Hill to open the scoring in the French capital.

On target in six of his seven appearances against English opposition, it is no surprise the 20-year-old is a narrow 1/2 (1.50) anytime bet to score his eighth goal in just six starts in this one.

Having put in an impressive performance on his return to his former club, Angel Di Maria offers more attractive value at 29/20 (2.45) considering his more advanced role in the first leg and recent record of six goals in nine games.

The Argentina international is certainly PSG’s most reliable goalscorer outside of their famous front three, with Julian Draxler a longer 14/5 (3.80) shot after finding the net just five times in all competitions this campaign.

At the other end of the pitch, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that Marcus Rashford can finally translate his impressive domestic form to the European stage at the vital moment.

Boasting six goals in 12 domestic starts since the interim manager took over, the youngster can be backed at 8/1 (9.00) to spark hopes of a comeback with the opener in Paris, or 11/4 (3.75) to enhance his record of just one goal in nine Champions League games.

While Rashford’s form has actually tailed off slightly in recent weeks, Romelu Lukaku has rediscovered his touch by firing four times in his last two matches - making him an attractive 23/10 (3.30) anytime bet.

That duo is likely to carry the goal-scoring burden on a tough night for a United squad that is without the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata.
