"They are the favourites but we will be very motivated".
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ready for the question. Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial have lit up Old Trafford in recent weeks, helping guide the rejuvenated Premier League outfit to a record of 10 wins and one draw under their Norwegian coach. They've only won once at Old Trafford in Europe this season, scraping 1-0 past Young Boys, drawing 0-0 with Valencia and losing 1-0 to Juventus.
The French forward also confirmed that the players want Solskjaer to stay as the permanent manager of the club.
Julian Draxler, who will be standing in for one of PSG's many injured parties, feels that he and his team-mates can stop the French World Cup victor, however.
United's rebirth under Solskjaer couldn't have been any more poorly timed as far as PSG counterpart Thomas Tuchel is concerned. "I think the other managers we have had in the last six or seven weren't the right fit", Brown told Sky Sports News.
For Buffon, who left Juventus last July after 17 years with the Italian club, the opportunity to work with young players such as Mbappe was a huge draw. Nevertheless, it is definitely bound to be a cracker of a contest, given the fort that is Old Trafford, given the colossal figures United still are at their home and given how PSG can turn tables on their day at any corner of the world.
"I would say we are lucky that Neymar is not there - it's unlucky for him, but lucky for us because he's a player that can change the game by himself as well", he continued.
"When you get to this stage of the tournament, with the floodlights on, these are the games that you really look forward to". We're not sure if he swore that time, but, yeah, he probably did then too.
But many United fans think the Frenchman shouldn't have even been on the pitch after repeatedly fouling throughout the first 55 minutes.
"Would I have liked to play for PSG? Yes".
They have responded to Solskjaer, which is why the question about what happens next will keep coming.
