Champions League’s heroic music was again played across the European pitch this midweek. And in the first round, fans will watch a very remarkable match between MU – PSG. The match will be a charming reunion between the two teams that they met in the 2018-2019 season and moreover, it is expected how Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria will play against their old clubs.
Let’s watch the match between Paris Saint-Germain vs Manchester United at 7:00pm on Tuesday 20th October on BT Sport 2
|1 – 2|
Edinson Cavani wouldn’t have expected to oppose PSG so quickly. Most likely, on his debut in Manchester United, El Matador will meet his old team, where he spent the peak seven years of his career, scoring 138 goals in 200 matches. Joining Manchester United could be a backwards step in the career of the South American player, when the Red Devils have shown enough competition in whatever arena they play in. But in the twilight of his career, there are not many opportunities for Cavani to experience the feeling of competing in the most attractive national championship on the planet.
People who have watched football for 10 years will not acknowledge Manchester United as a force in Europe. Because their performance in recent years has not been as good as expected. But looking back, MU has won three championships in Europe’s highest arena, and most recently since 2008 with their legendary No.7 Cristiano Ronaldo.
For many MU fans, number 7 is really legendary numbers with the best George, Eric Cantona or David Beckham. But since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the No 7 has come and gone in frustration.
The panic of Edwood Wood and the MU reeds on the final day of the transfer market was expressed by the name of Edinson Cavani, the 33-year-old striker who arrived on a free transfer. Edinson will be the name to wear the No.7 shirt this season. The Uruguayan’s ability is undisputed, but age will be a factor in preventing the player’s contribution to the Red Devils.
Meeting PSG in the opening round will be a challenge for MU. Cavani is likely to be registered to play in this match once he has completed the British government’s quarantine procedure. He will show his worth to his former club, as one of the reasons why Edinson Cavani left the Parc des Princes was the arrival of Mauro Icardi.
“I like to put the number 11 shirt on, but they put it in my hand the number 7 shirt and expect me to become a legend here” – Angel Di Maria shared about his transfer to MU in 2014 with Sky Sport. In that interview, he said he was uncomfortable in Manchester and Manu was just his stop before he moved to PSG.
At the time, Di Maria was one of the best creative midfielders in the world as he won the Champions League and only lost to Germany in the 2014 WC Final in Brazil. Naturally, the expectation for Angel at the time was entirely understandable, a player best in his place at Manchester United and the awarding of the No.7 to him but a viral effect of those who run Manchester United. But in the end, everyone knows, Angel left Manchester after only one season. The player was also unhappy with MU fans for repeatedly speaking remarks against his former club. Culminating in the match at Old Trafford, after an assist, Di Maria turned to both MU fans and celebrated like crazy.
Despite Paris Saint-Germain’s hot boys such as Neymar or Kylian Mbappe, the newspapers will write reams in Angel Di Maria’s return.
PSG (4-2-2-2): Keylor Navas ; Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Kehre, Bernat; Gueye, Verratti, Mbappe; Di Maria, Icardi, Neymar.
MU (4-2-3-1): De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Lindorf, Meguiar, Matic, Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Martial, Rashford, Greenwood.
